Important search TIPS:

  • Enter words separately, i.e. blue boat, and you will access images featuring both words.

  • If you enter two words with a space and a dash immediately in front of the second word, i.e.
    blue –boat or yellow –flower , etc you will access images with blue or yellow in them, but not a blue boat or a yellow flower, etc.

  • If you enter two words, you will access images with both words first, then images with either word.

  • Try changing the words by making them plural or by adding "ing" ("boat" or "boats” or "boating")

  • To refine your search, try using more words, such as: apartment buildings large city

  • If you know the image file number, you may enter it in the search field.

Royalty Free means that as a User, you pay a specified amount for the photograph or image only once and then you are free to use and publish it as often as you like, with certain specific restrictions. Apart from those included in the initial fee, there are no other license fees or royalties to be paid.

Content Filter (Age and sensitivity-appropriate)

Some of the images available through stockphotomedia may be deemed offensive to some viewers. We therefore operate a Content Filter for photographs, images and other materials that may contain scenes of nudity. The choice is yours whether or not to activate the Content Filter – we advise User discretion.

In some cases the file you downloaded is not 300 Dpi.

This is because the default resolution in some cameras, scanners or other equipment could be lower than 300 dpi. This does not mean that the file cannot be used. Before downloading a file, first make sure you check the "Print size" displayed under the "small, medium and large picture you would like to download " for both web and print use. Use any graphics software to adjust its resolution (when using Adobe Photoshop, make sure to delete the tick in the "Resample image" option before changing the resolution of the file to 300dpi).

  • When you access, browse, purchase, or initiate any transaction via our website, you automatically consent to having read and agreed to our Terms and Conditions. Should you be uncertain about the possible use and disposal of any photographs or images retrievable from our website, please contact our support desk via e-mail on support@stockphotomedia.com
