Yes, all images on the website are subject to usage fees. Price is calculated on the specific use of an image rather than the actual image used. It is important that as much detail regarding use is supplied when requesting a quote so we can provide an accurate usage quote.
Once your order is confirmed we will supply the image(s) and an invoice will be dispatched, usually within 14 days. Payment can be made by cheque or using the BACS payment system. We do not accept card payments.
Yes, the low-resolution images can be downloaded for use in compositional design layouts only. Click the "Download low-res" on the image full preview page. The downloaded low-res images carry watermarks.
If you're having difficulty finding a particular image, try using variations on the keywords or refer to our "Search tips". If you know the library image reference then this can be used in the "Search" box (e.g. CHE20566d). Under the "Category search" drop-down there is also a full keyword list. If you are still having problems finding an appropriate image, contact us to see if we can help.
As long as you are a registered commercial business images can be used for most company applications, we reserve the right to refuse use of our imagery if we feel the context is not appropriate. Fees are always applicable and price is determined by the specific use rather than the image required.
During normal business hours, which are Monday to Thursday 09:00 to 17:00 (Friday 09:00 to 16:30), we make every effort to dispatch the images electronically within an hour of confirming the order, dependent on the number of images requested. Orders should be confirmed by 16:00 at the latest for delivery same day.
Images are supplied as RGB JPEG files for most applications. If the images are being used larger than A4 then we can supply RGB Tiff files on request.
Although we do allow enhancement or manipulation of our images, you will need to contact us to discuss the context in which you intend to use the retouched result. We would need to approve any manipulation of our images in writing by email.
