What is the difference between Rights Managed (RM) and Royalty Free (RF)?

Rights Managed (RM) licences are calculated on a usage basis. You pay for what you need. Our simplified and streamlined pricing calculator makes choosing the correct licence quick and easy. A dedicated Account Manager is available to assist with any queries.
Exclusivity is an option with an RM licence. Contact us for more details.

Royalty Free (RF) licences offer flexibility and unlimited usage. You pay a one-off fee based on the file size required. The licence gives you the freedom to use the image or clip however you want for as long as you need.
RF content is fully model and property released and includes indemnity insurance as standard.

Why are some images restricted?

Some images and videos may be restricted for certain types of uses. Please contact your Account Manager for clearance before downloading or purchasing.

What is a board?

Think of it as a digital set of images and/or videos for your next project. It can be a compilation of media for initial brainstorming ideas. You can email a board to a colleague, add notes for future reference or add a board to the basket once you’re ready.
