To give you a bit of detail on how image licensing works, our moderation process considers a number of factors related to each image and assigns the most appropriate licence based on image content.
The Commercial Licence has fewer restrictions than the Editorial Licence and the Advertising Licence has fewer restrictions than both. You can find an overview and our full licence terms here.
Photographers can change and manage the licence types on their images once assigned from their accounts at any time using the instructions here.
All photographers must ensure that they have model releases available for any images that contain recognisable people should they wish them to be licensed for Commercial or Advertising purposes.
