Licenced use of Images


Two basic sizes are offered as standard, either Websize (approx 800*500 pixels) or full size (from 3614*2592 to 7360*4912 pixels) depending on camera used and amount of crop applied to final image. Full size images are supplied unsharpened and have no interpolation applied. Image format is either JPEG in Adobe RGB (1998) colour space or 8 BIT TIFF. Alternative file formats are by prior arrangement only.


Quotation Request


Rights to use Earthly Light images are generally granted on a single use, non-exclusive, copyright retained by photographer basis. Please contact me using the quotation request form.  My approach to licence pricing is dependent on both the size of the image supplied and the intended use of that image. For example a single use of a web sized image on a customer website or one off publication by a charity or non-profit making organisation would be offered at a nominal rate and require my agreement in writing, whereas exclusive use of a full sized image by a large organisation on unlimited useage basis would be at the upper end of the charge scale and require a formal licence agreement covering usage. 

I aim to provide a scale of licence charges on a basis appropriate to the customer and intended usage. Earthly Light images have Price bands applied to each image relative to size and use and will be supplied by e-mail or FTP after acceptance by you of my Quotation and Terms. In all cases copyright is retained by Earthly Light, images are provided subject to the Terms and conditions outlined in the link at the bottom of the page.
