Understanding Image Licensing

Before we get started, here is a quick look at some License types that you might see on images.

  • Rights Managed (RM): With rights-managed (RM) license, you buy a license to use the image in a particular context and for a limited period. Pricing is usually based on several factors, including how long the image can be used, where it can be used, image size, image resolution and the type of media in which it can appear.
  • Royalty Free (RF): With this license, once you buy the image, you are free to use the image as much as you want in any creative project. It often imposes a few restrictions on the use of the image, so you must follow any guidelines outlined in the royalty-free licence agreement.
  • Creative Commons Images: There are six main types of creative commons licences, each with different rights and limitations that the person using the image must follow. While not all CC images are free to use in blog posts, it’s best to pay attention to the type of license the image holds.
  • Public Domain Images: Public domain images are blogger-friendly. Images can be used freely for any personal or commercial use without any costs – no restrictions, no copyright claim.
