We provide two types of licensing: Editorial Use and Commercial Use. Our standard Editorial Use license permits you to use the purchased media in one design through the terms described below. Our Commercial Use license expands on the Editorial Use license to increase both the types and quantities of reproductions permitted, namely the ability to use our media in items that are meant for resale, advertising and commercial use.

Our Editorial Use License

Subject to the restrictions described under Prohibited Uses below, the following are ‘Permitted Uses’ of media purchased from us:

  • school or university projects;
  • social media post or profile image;
  • decorative background on a personal computer or mobile device;
  • online or electronic publications, including web blogs, ebooks and videos, limited to a maximum of 480,000 total pixels (for example: 600px x 800px) per media file where un-edited.

Unless otherwise declared as ‘Commercial Use’, all media available on this site is licensed under the Editorial Use license. You must receive written permission for Commercial Use by contacting us first.

Our Commercial Use License

Our Commercial Use license expands on our Editorial use license in the following ways:


  • Primary E-Commerce listing images, website design, digital catalogues, and/or infographics.


  • invitations, advertising and promotional projects, including printed materials, product packaging, presentations, film and video presentations, commercials, brochures, promotional greeting cards and promotional postcards up to a number of prints determined via questionnaire;
  • entertainment applications, such as books and book covers, magazines, newspapers, editorials, newsletters, and video, broadcast and theatrical presentations up to a number of prints determined via questionnaire;
  • prints, posters (i.e. a hardcopy) and other reproductions for personal or promotional purposes, resale, license or other distribution up to a number of prints determined via questionnaire;
  • in themes, skins and other electronic software meant for resale limited to a maximum of 480,000 total pixels (for example: 600px x 800px) per media file where un-edited.

Both our Editorial Use and Commercial Use licenses permit you to use the purchased media in one project only, unless otherwise stated. For use in multiple projects, additional licenses may be required. An exception to this rule is if an image is used in an editorial capacity with a duplicate article both in print and online; one license permits you to use the same image in both mediums.
