What type of license does Connemara Photo Library offer?

At present Connemara Photo Library offers only Royalty Free Standard License option. Rights Managed and Extended License options may be offered in the future.


What is Royalty Free (RF) Licensing

This license type grants the buyer a determined set of rights to use the image in multiple ways, for a flat, one-time fee. This means you pay for the license only once, and you can use it for an unlimited time within the accepted ways, without any further payment obligations.

Royalty free does not mean copyright free – Connemara Photo Library (Aoife Herriott Photography) retains the copyright to all imagery. You are acquiring the right to use the image (within limitations set out below) not the property of the photo itself. 

RF images cannot be purchased exclusively, so it is possible that other clients may have licensed the same image for their campaigns and collateral materials; this should be carefully considered for projects requiring branding and unique design elements.

Every file downloaded from Connemara Photo Library comes with a standard license and your use of content is subject to the standard licensing terms. Connemara Photo Library images are licensed based on file size as laid out below.
