Licence type search option

This option allows you to search for images which can be used in particular ways; for commercial use, with an extended licence, and for editorial use only.

Commercial use

Images sold for commercial use can be used for permitted commercial and non-commercial purposes. This includes web design, printed media, advertising, book covers and pages, music artwork, software applications and much more. Our terms and conditions[link] include a full list of allowed uses.

Extended licence

Most images for commercial use have the option of an extended licence. This allows you to use the images for a wider range of applications such as merchandising and product packaging. Please see our terms and conditions for more information on our extended licence.

Editorial use

Editorial images may only be used for non-commercial and non-promotional purposes. This means that the images may not be used for any purpose which will result in you making money.

Editorial images may be used to illustrate truthful articles in printed or electronic media such as websites, magazines, newsletters, books, broadcasts and newspapers.

Editorial images may not be used in advertising, advertorials, commercial brochures, commercial websites or product packaging.

Editorial images are sold under our standard licence and all terms and conditions still apply.
