Terms and Conditions – Licensing with the Dental Image Library

Our images are licensed on broads rights managed terms. We understand that if you want to use an image for marketing it is likely that you want to use it in print and online, so we license image use by categories of usage to make things easier for you. This means that your one license purchase will cover you across a wide range of mediums and so you get more out of an image.

Our images are licensed perpetually. This means that after purchasing the Dental Image Library illustrations you are not required to make any future payments (or pay further royalty fees), and you can use our images for as long as you like, in multiple projects, as long as you comply with the license agreement. 

Our images are only by certified medical illustrators. Our images are made to people who are professional medical illustrator to ensure the quality and accuracy of their work.

OUR IMAGE SIZES & FILE SPECIFICATIONS

Our images are available at a range of sizes, the largest available for a specific image being constrained by the size it was created at. The majority of the images on this site have been created by digitally. The relative dimensions of the images are unique. Please check the images (s) you are interested in individually to ensure that the files provided at a size level meet your specific requirements.

IMAGE FILE FORMATS

The smaller sizes are supplied as JPEG format images, typically compressed at ‘Maximum’ (12) Quality, in RGB color mode. This is because they are more likely to be used online only at these sizes. The Large and above sizes are supplied as TIF files, CMYK color mode without any compression. Files that are RGB can be changed to CMYK color mode and vice versa in an application such as Adobe Photoshop® although you may experience a slight hue change. All files are zipped for the downloading process.

DOWNLOADING AND ACCESSING THE IMAGE FILES

When you have completed the purchase of an illustration license you will immediately be provided with a link for each of the illustrations files ordered so that you can download them.
