Am I allowed to crop and edit an image once I’ve licensed it?

Yes, you can!

It’s totally fine to edit an image in photo-editing software after you’ve licensed it - crop it, resize it, adjust contrasts, color balances etc.

What we don’t allow is “re-composition” - cutting out or remixing entire elements of the image to fundamentally change its composition. For example - it’s totally fine to bring out the orange of a sunset with Photoshop filters or adjustments, but it’s not fine to replace the sun with a moon!
