Commons’ search engine generally works the same as the search engine on Wikipedia. For help with using the search engine, you can visit the English Wikipedia search help page (which is particularly detailed), or the same help page on other Wikipedias.

Search options on the CommonsEdit

intitle: and prefix: and other search options are activated on Commons search. Note especially the file properties search options.
