High Resolution Photos FAQ


What is a Photo License?

A photo license is an agreement which states the usage terms for the photo and the price charged for the usage. A license is basically an agreement to purchase rights to use a photo for specific (commercial) purposes. Scott Murphy is the 'Licensor' and the party purchasing the rights is the ‘Licensee'.


How much does licensing a high-resolution photo cost?

The cost of licensing an photo is not fixed and depends on several factors including the photo size, print run, and duration of use. Since these factors are unique to each license it is impossible to quotes license prices without knowing the usage details. Our pricing is competitive with rights-managed photo pricing at any major stock house. You will also be able to judge the difference in quality between the photos we offer and those found elsewhere.


What file format and resolution are your licensed photos distributed in?

High resolution photos are distributed to our customers as as high resolution jpegs, which is the industry standard. We license 300 ppi photos for print use and 72 ppi photos for web and broadcast use. All photos are distributed in 8-bit RGB color mode and have an embedded Adobe RGB 1998 color profile.


How will I receive the high-resolution photo once I have purchased a license?
