Royalty-Free means that you license the image once and then you can use it as many times as you like, with just a few restrictions. In other words, you pay for the license only once.
The Royalty-Free license is granted ONLY for the non-watermarked images you save using the Export Options via email or Dropbox; all the other versions (watermarked screenshots) are entirely copyrighted.
The high-resolution images that you export may be used on web sites, magazines, newspapers, books or booklets, for book covers, flyers, application software programs (apps), to make fine art prints or any other advertising and promotional material, in either printed or electronic media, as long as the item in which the image appears does not contradict any of the restrictions below. The list is not exhaustive and if you have any uncertainty regarding the use of the images in a correct way please contact us.
Web templates, greeting cards or postcards especially designed for sale, similar print-on-demand services, canvas, t-shirts, mugs, calendars, postcards, mouse pads or any other items incorporating the image in an essential manner, intended to be sold or given for free, are considered redistribution (if the image is used in an essential manner). The use of Art Fountain images for these purposes under the regular Royalty Free license is not permitted without expressed written consent from Techné Media. It is also forbidden to make the image available on a website for download (as wallpapers for example), although you may use the image in a concept in as many websites as you want, for any number of clients. For Web use, you must not use the image at a width exceeding 1,024 pixels unless it is included in your site's design. If the image is part of a design and manipulated accordingly, the image width can be higher than 1,024 pixels.
You may modify the images in any way required for reproduction, or include them in your own personal creations. If you significantly manually modify an original Art Fountain image (other than mere color shifts), except for Vector PDF files, Techné Media makes no claim on your art work and considers it original by you. Otherwise, all images remain fully copyrighted by Techné Media with a Royalty-Free License Grant as explained herein.
Buying the high-resolution image (purchasing the license) does not transfer the copyright. You may not claim that the image is your own and you may not sell, license for use, or in any way distribute the image for reuse. We recommend that you credit the Art Fountain App when you use an image.
