locate command

I just switched from MS-Windows server admin to Debian Linux server admin role. I need to find a directory called project.images. I was also told that the locate command is the simplest and quickest way to find the locations of files and directories on Linux. But, the locate command is not working out for me. How do I find project.images directory using command line options only?
