API Search Manual for developers

If you provide on-demand online service or just need a gallery with images for your products, we have simple and effective solution! Include our images to your galleries and attract more customers.

Example of an image gallery you can get:

Please note, you have to buy the image only when you actually need it. No fee for the usage of our images at your website through the API Search.

How it works?

You can just use <iframe> tag to include the link with list of the images to your page. Or pop-up window.

Generate the link for iframe or pop-up using the form below:

Simple form:


Form with all parameters:


allow to preview larger image
affiliate link with your affiliate ID (login) to the image page on Cliparto
download link (JPG + EPS for vectors)
show Image ID   vinyl-ready vector images only en">

Please note you can also search for a certain image by Image ID. Just use the Image ID as keyword.

Note: * - The heraldic images (flags and arms) from Vector-Images.com database are not included to the general search. The links go to http://vector-images.com

Example of HTML code with iframe:

<iframe src="https://cliparto.com/apis/?param[query]=abstract+background&param[type]=&param[cols]=4&param[imgnum]=12</iframe>
