The file you download will be smaller than the file you purchased! Files are compressed for quick and easy download. As is standard practice in the industry, we provide you with "JPEG" files (identifiable by the ".jpg" extension added to the file name), which by definition are compressed to facilitate transmission and therefore are not as large as the original file. When you load the file into a photo editor such as PhotoShop, it will automatically expand to full size.
We send you a link to download the Image(s) you have purchased at your email address. But this link expires in 15 days. To download images from a previous purchase, please send us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org for the same and we will do the needful. You will not be charged again.

When an RGB image is converted to CMYK, several parameters must be taken into consideration, including paper stock, four-color film output device, layout software programs used, types of inks used and special effects intended by you, the designer. An RGB format provides you with the most flexible format. That's why we deliver images in Adobe RGB colour space.
As a general rule of thumb, our images can safely be enlarged to 125% of their original image size without affecting the quality - our images are regularly used on billboards. Since it's critical that you know what resolution you need for the output device, we recommend that you consult directly with your printer or service bureau to find out the specific capabilities of the device that will be used. And, of course, you can always Contact Us for more details.
All the images are delivered in 'jpeg' format. Firstly, you must save an image downloaded from the website in 'tiff' format before making any adjustments or manipulations. This is because every time you resave a 'jpeg' image, it will lead to a loss in the quality of that image. Secondly, for the best quality, remember this general guideline: The image resolution (ppi) should remain equal to twice the screen frequency (lpi). You have options, however, to adjust the screen frequency, re-sample the image at a higher resolution, or lower the ppi-to-lpi ratio. For more details, read the following tips for enlarging images:
Tips for enlarging images
Depending on how the image was saved, it may open at a screen resolution of 72 dpi. This doesn't necessarily mean you downloaded a low-resolution image by mistake. Check the dimensions. Change the dpi of the image to 300 without re-sampling the image. If the dimensions come down to 5"x7.5"(10MB image), 9"x13.5"(31.2MB image) and 12"x18"(55.6MB image) when you change the dpi to 300, then you know you have the correct image. Simply re-save the image at 300 dpi.

Non-Exclusive Price, which is determined by 'file size' for buying an image under MASH Non-Exclusive Rights Agreement.
What are Non-Exclusive Rights?
Our images can be sold multiple times to different clients. Non-Exclusive Rights means that other people can buy the image you have chosen.
Note : Nevertheless, you can't redistribute or resell images after taking NON-EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS.

A model release is a written agreement between the model and the photographer
where the model has granted
the photographer permission to use the photographs commercially. Model Release
generally permits the use
of the image(s) for all purposes, with exceptions for controversial, sensitive
or defamatory uses.
When you enlarge a thumbnail image by clicking on it, the Model Release Status information is displayed below each stock image
When is a signed model release needed?
Images, which depict people, may require a signed model release. It is up to you to decide whether the license usage will require a release. You should be aware that when a model release is available additional considerations may mean that the model release in itself is not sufficient, e.g. if the image is to be used for sensitive issues.
No matter whom you are buying stock images from, us or anyone else, there is absolutely no way we can overemphasize the significance of these model release issues - if those images have recognizable people in them.
MAKE SURE that the photo agency you are dealing with has signed and "perfected" model releases and that they are available. Do NOT make the mistake of saying to yourself that, well, if there's a problem, it's the photo agency's problem, not mine. It is your problem and it can very rapidly become a huge one if you're not careful.
See our Help - Licensing page for more on how our images are licensed.
