Royalty-free, or RF, is the licensing right to use copyrighted material without the need to pay royalties or license fees for each use, per each copy or volume sold or some time period of use or sales. Typically the RF images are licensed for unlimited use for a one time fee, and the price is determined by the image size. Our RF images are carefully curated for its quality and are optimized for professional uses unlike other larger agencies or microstock sites. On our website, you can search for RF images only, RM images only or both.
Rights-managed, or RM, is the licensing right to use copyrighted material per use – basically you pay what you need basis. However, a rights-managed license grants a certain level of exclusivity that doesn’t exist with royalty-free licenses. There have been many instances where brands opted for cheaper RF images only to find their competitors used the same image. A RM license can save you from such embarrassment.
The RM price is calculated accordingly by some of the following factors, if not all, depending on the photo usage, such as language, distribution, format (electric, print or both), print run, unit run or circulation, number of downloads, size of the photo, placement of the photo, blah-blah… Seems complicated? Please do not worry. Our website will guide you through the process, and then, the RM licensing price will be automatically calculated and presented for you before you purchase it, or simply contact us for a free quick quote.
Personal Use License
The Personal Use License is designed primarily for non-commercial, personal or limited educational uses – for example, school projects, personal screensaver, art prints for personal viewing, personal blog post, etc. Prices are set according to the image size of your choice, and are the most reasonable prices that we can offer. Unfortunately, as an agent for our photographers, we are not authorized to donate their images or license any publishing rights for free of charge no matter how worthy the cause is. It is not our discretion. However, most of our images can be purchased and downloaded for your personal use with a minimal fee. The use is for one-time, one-placement only. The image cannot be shared, copied, or transferred to a third party. If used in the public, the image MUST be watermarked or accompanied with a clear copyright notice. The copyright of the image stays with the photographer.
