Information & Licensing

We strive to make the licensing process and fee structure as simple and easy as possible. To that end we have three basic licensing fee options that in most cases meet our clients' needs.

License 1 ($39): Single purpose usage: Image may only be used once for a single purpose (ie- book, magazine, journal, classroom media, website, marketing media, poster, CD/DVD/other digital media, etc.).
Also, in media such as books, for example, the license will extend to subsequent editions of a specific title, but not to ancillary products (see License 2 option).

License 2 ($69): Limited Multipurpose usage: Applies to one product such as a book or digital media and also, if applicable, to its specific ancillary materials (ie- a textbook plus media specifically related to it, such as a downloadable PDF edition, companion study guide, website content, video, CD/DVD, marketing materials, etc.).

License 3 ($299): Unlimited Multipurpose usage: Image can be used by licensee multiple times for multiple purposes, but cannot be transferred in any manner for use by third-party licensees, indivduals or entities.

License 4 ($15): Academic Discount: Single purpose usage for nonprofit in-class learning environments.
We offer this discounted fee to administrators, educators, volunteers, etc. at schools and nonprofit organizations. Please contact us regarding specific usage needs and affiliation prior to ordering.

Licenses are one-time fees; no renewal or subscription necessary.

If your intended usage does not fit one of these options, or if you're unsure, please email us prior to ordering and we will respond with clarification and/or recommendations.

Unless other file format specs are requested at time of ordering, all images are delivered as high resolution 300ppi JPEG files with sRGB color profile. Since clients often have unique needs regarding file specs, labeling or other content modifications, we don't offer file downloading directly from our site.

Images can be ordered with or without labels, and labeling can be modified at no additional charge (ie- different text, font, type size, etc.). Images can also be ordered as B&W tone (full grayscale) at no extra charge.
Additional fees may apply for other image changes. Please contact us directly for cost of modification requests.

Order payments are made via credit card and are securely processed through Paypal, for which licensees do not need an account.
Once your order is completed, image files and a receipt will be sent separately via email.
DropBox is used for larger orders.

Other than resizing or reformatting (ie- file format, resolution, color profile, etc.), image content cannot be altered in any way by licensee without express permission from David Carlson/Carlson Stock Art.

Licensing rights are nonexclusive to licensee. Images cannot be relicensed, sold, or transferred in any manner except by David Carlson/Carlson Stock Art, which retains full copyright of all content on this site.

Copyright credit must remain on the image, and we request that this credit line also be added outside the image area: ©DaveCarlson/
