    How to add search to photography website

    Firstly, this is my first post so I apologise if its in the wrong place. I have made a website for my girlfriends photography and as her portfolio is growing, it would benefit from a search function to find images on the site. As I am completely self taught, I am struggling with this. I have seen what I would like on other photographers sites and want to know how to do it. I have searched Google and drawn a blank. If someone could help I would be very grateful

    Did you use a database of some kind to store the photo information?

    Or is it a site that is all hand-coded static pages?

    If a database is involved, you're in a good spot ... easy to add a search.

    Can you explain how you created the site and give us a link to it?

    To be honest, it was made using various tutorials I found on the internet. Currently its not using any kind of database but I am considering a remake as I would like to make it responsive. If a database is within my capablities I would certainly give it a go, provided I could find tutorials to help me. LOL. The website is ASC Photography - Landscape Pictures of Dartmoor, Devon and Cornwall
    One website with a decent search that I like is Adam Burton Landscape Photography
    I particularly like the way the results page displays the links to the pages

    Just about the only practical way to do it is to assign a list of tags for each picture and search from a 'tag cloud'. Much work by hand, but it will give the right results.

    Having never done this could you explain what I would need to do please. As I said before, I am self-taught and this is something I would like to learn to do if it would give me the results I am after
