How to Purchase Rights to Use an Image
All photographs on this site are available for purchase. The photos are uploaded to the web site for viewing at a low resolution. Purchased images are high resolution, a larger size, and do not have a watermark on them. The copyright remains with the photographer and you will be licensed to use the image.
Our shopping cart is set up to accept credit cards and payments from PayPal accounts.
You may also contact us to set up a business account or to make other payment arrangements.
Purchases made on this site through our shopping cart are paid through PayPal. The transaction is secure and we do not have access to your payment information. You do not need a PayPal account to pay by credit card.
If the image is in one of our public galleries, the cost depends on what you will use the image for. Also a factor is whether you want to use the image many times or just once.
(Examples of different ways the pictures might be used: Editorial, Marketing, Advertising, Promotional Materials, Resale or Personal Use, including magazines, books, visitors guides, newsletters, brochures, print ads, flyers, mailers, handouts, packaging and art prints.)
To get a price quote to use an image, click on the "Get Quote" button found above the large image to the right side of our galleries. Then type in your email address and a comment about how you plan to use the image. We check our messages frequently, and will respond promptly with a quote. The quote will be sent to your email address.
If you decide to purchase rights to an image, we will move it to a private gallery and connect it to our shopping cart. We will send you an email with a link to the private gallery.
When the image you want to buy is in a private gallery, use the "Buy Now" button to see the cost to download the image. Choose a quantity to add the image to your shopping cart. Pictures can be removed from the shopping cart by clicking the "Remove from Shopping Cart" button.
You have the choice of downloading the picture from our download dock or having the picture emailed to you. (If you prefer, the picture can be burned to a CD and mailed to you for an additional charge. Please contact us for this option.)
After making your payment on PayPal, we will email you the Image Key Number you will need to download your image. When the payment is completed, PayPal will offer you the option to return to our website. The image will be available on our download dock for 30 days.
The download dock page can be found under the "Download Dock" button at the top of your screen. Enter the Image Key Number, then click "Submit." After a moment, the download process will begin, allowing you to save the file to your computer.
The downloaded image is a compressed (zipped) file, and will need to be unzipped.
To unzip the file if you are using a PC, right click on the zipped folder and click "extract all" to open the Windows Compressed (Zipped) Folders Extraction Wizard. The Extraction Wizard helps you copy files from inside a zip archive. It's very easy, you just click "next" a couple of times and then "finish."
If you are using a Mac computer, the image will automatically unzip when you open the zipped folder.
