These Rights Managed (RM) images give you exclusivity in all territories, and includes all editions, ebook and marketing materials, for a period of 5 years from the date purchased. Not sublicensable. Once purchased as Rights Managed (RM) any options to buy the image as Royalty Free (RF) will be removed. Images are licensed and sold on a strictly first come first served basis.

How to buy

Log in or register in MY ACCOUNT on the home page, or on the quick links at the bottom of the other pages. Once you have found an image you like, directly underneath are four button options:

  1. ‘Low-res file’ – This downloads a low-res file for temporary use in your compositions.
  2. ‘Add to lightbox’ – Does exactly that. You can name, store and e-mail multiple lightboxes to others. (You must be logged in to save your lightbox searches).
  3. ‘Buy’ – Lets you purchase the high-res file safely and securely.
  4. ‘Corporate: Download/Add to Cart’ – This is for corporate account holders only who have set up an account to download high-res images and be invoiced separately. If you are a known publishing company, we can create a corporate account for you. Just fill in the form HERE (this system is for clients requiring a larger volume of images as opposed to a one off purchase).

Purchasing an image is simple. Just click the ‘Buy’ button and this will give you the choice of buying the image Royalty Free (RF) or Rights Managed (RM), unless somebody has already purchased this image before, in which case the licence cannot be changed. If the image is available, select your option and this will give you the price and usage information. Then simply click on the ‘Add to Cart’ button to the right. You may then continue browsing or press ‘View cart’ to go to the checkout. You can pay securely using either your credit card or PayPal. Once payment has been processed, you will automatically receive a link to download the hi-res image(s).

You will also receive a follow up e-mail to ensure everything went smoothly and to request the book title and author details for the licence. Regrettably we can’t do this through the e-commerce system on the website at present.

If the image is Rights Managed (RM) by Arcangel Images click the link to their website and find the image. You can then open up a dialogue with Arcangel to licence the image.

If you’re an approved corporate account holder, ensure you are logged in and click on the corporate account key button under the required image. You can then instantly download a hi-res file. (The image will not be licenced or invoiced until you confirm usage). At that point you will then supply the details for the licence. (RM/RF, publishing date, authors name, book title and editions the image(s) will be used on etc).
