Rights Managed - Rights Managed stock photography is the tracking of all established stock photography usages and licenses. We track all Rights Managed licenses with our carefully designed database system. Rights Managed covers both non-exclusive and exclusive licenses. The non-exclusive license is called the Basic License. A Basic License can be established with our interactive website. This allows an image to be immediately downloaded. An Exclusive License can be purchased to limit other customers' use. The Exclusive License is available through our website by request, and after thorough review by our support staff, images will be available for download.
Basic License - For many customers, the Basic License is appropriate. The Basic License is a non-exclusive license and is available for immediate download from our interactive website. Non-exclusive means that the same image can be sold to another customer with the same or similar Basic License. You can select the images of interest by placing them into the lightbox. From the lightbox, each image will need a license and price to be established prior to proceeding to the purchase pages. The license and price is determined by your usage need and entered into our Price Calculator. A price for licensing that usage will be displayed in the calculator and applied to the image in the lightbox. At this point, the license for the image can be purchased. During the purchase process you will be presented with a non-exclusive license agreement for one year. Upon your approval of the license agreement, and after your payment information is automatically approved, you will be sent an email. This email will contain a web link to download your full resolution image ready for integration into your project.
Exclusive License - Customers who need the assurance that an image will be unique to their reproduction needs can purchase an Exclusive License. The Exclusive License is available through our website by request. With our database tracking all Rights Managed licenses, we are able to provide customers accurate information on the availability of the requested Exclusive License. Different levels of exclusivity are available. The levels of exclusivity include Spot Protection, Industry Protection, Use Protection, or Total Protection. To request an Exclusive License, please complete the Price Calculator with your requested usage. Upon applying the price and license to the image, the question "Need Exclusive Rights?" will appear. Click this link to fill out a form for your needed level of exclusivity, and your request will be submitted to our support staff. We will review your request, and respond within 72 hours. Upon approving your request for an Exclusive License, an email message will be sent to your provided address with instructions on how to purchase the Exclusive License. This email message will also contain your Exclusive License agreement. Your payment for the Exclusive License will signify your acceptance of the agreement. Once your payment is approved, you will be sent another email message with a web link to download your image.
Spot Protection - The narrowest form of rights protection, spot protection guarantees that we will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid re-licensing the same image to any other customer for the same use, in the same industry, in the same country and during the same time frame.
Industry Protection - Industry protection guarantees that we will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid re-licensing the same image to any other customer in the same industry, in the same country, and during the same time frame, regardless of use. The difference between industry protection and spot protection is the fact that industry protection covers all uses within the specified industry, rather than just the specific licensed use.
Use Protection - Use protection guarantees that we will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid re-licensing the same image to any other customer for the same use, within the same country, and during the same time frame, regardless of industry. The usage category and usage details determines the Use Protection.
Total Protection - Total protection is the most comprehensive form of rights protection offered. Total protection guarantees that we will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid re-licensing the same image for any use, in any industry, in the same country and during the same time frame.
Price Calculator - The license and price is determined by your image reproduction usage. The Price Calculator will lead you through a few questions, and will set the appropriate licensing fee. From the lightbox, the "Find Price" button will bring up the Price Calculator in a pop-up window. A customer's usage is gathered, including how the image will be used, what industry it will used for, and which country it will be used in. This usage will determine the price. A radio button can select whether the license and price is applied to the single image shown in the Price Calculator, or to all of the images in the lightbox.
Downloading Images with a Basic License - Upon placing your order, an automated response will send you an email with a personalized link to download your images. Images are provided in digital format only. The images are delivered at 300 dpi using JPEG compression level 9, which is reasonable for most output purposes. Raw uncompressed TIFF files are delivered only upon special request.
Failed Downloads - If your image download fails for some reason, please do not re-purchase that product. All licensed images are available for download for 7 days after purchase. For more help with failed downloads, please contact us.
