Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating searching, labeling, and/or filtering of digital media items are described. Users may provide queries for digital media items. Results from a search may be presented to the users. A user may provide selection of one or more displayed digital media items. A user selection may provide a digital media item exemplar that may be used to update the user-provided queries. Further searches based on the updated queries may be performed. A repository of digital media items may be queried both with an original text query supplied by a user and an updated query based user selection of digital media items returned from the original text query search. A user may be able to refine an initial text, image, and/or other query without having to know additional search terms.
