License agreements




Rights-managed products are high-quality products with a license and fee based on your specific use. The fee is calculated from several factors including print run, size, placement, duration of use and geographic distribution. At the time you order a rights-managed product, you will be asked to submit information that will determine your licensing fee. Please read Licence information. Rights-managed products are identified by an (RM) notation next to the identification number.


Royalty-free pricing is not based on the specific use. You don’t have to pay any additional fees on a use-by-use basis. Once you purchase a royalty-free product, you may use it multiple times for multiple projects without paying additional fees. Royalty-free images offer creative professionals an alternative to right-managed imagery -- without sacrificing quality or creativity. Royalty-free products provide a solution for every budget, with few usage restrictions. Once you pay the fee for a royalty-free product, you can use the images as frequently and creatively as you’d like. Please read Licence information. (Pornographic, defamatory, libelous or otherwise unlawful use of any image is, of course, prohibited.) Royalty-free products are identified by an (RF) notation next to the identification number.
