Is it possible to online search for PDF vector images? [closed]

I’m trying to find an easy way to search the internet for PDF vector images.

Update: using “free to use, share or modify, even commercially” filter

Google Image Search:

filetype:pdf spaceship

only brings up pdf document files

Google Image Search:

filetype:svg spaceship

does bring up vector images but not in the PDF format that I need.

If there isn’t a way to search for PDF vectors is there a converter that will convert from SVG to vector PDF without losing quality on the Mac?


Update Thanks @WillAdams, he brought up good points about copyright, added license filter to post.

Answer

The problem is, there’s no indexing of whether or no .pdf files contain either pixel or vector images.

One can open up a .pdf using Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Serif, (or Inkscape if one wants a free solution), &c., but one won’t know until opening up the file how what it contains is represented in the file.

Moreover, the contents of the image are separate from the licensing — just ’cause it’s on the web doesn’t mean that you can open it, strip it out and use it. Please consider copyright.

If you want a vector image of a spaceship why not draw it yourself?

Or, since this is for education, why not learn how to create spaceships? Use the Open Vehicle Sketch Pad: http://openvsp.org/ — there’s a gallery of images, and it should be possible to export to a fileformat which can be converted into SVG.

Further, it’s simple to convert a .pdf to .svg using Inkscape or some other tool.
