Terms and Conditions and Copyright info.
All the images / photographs on this site are copyright Dave Massey, except the images by NASA http://www.nasa.gov/Guidelines. The images can be used as desktop background pictures on personal computers, tablets and smart phones free of charge. No photograph may be reproduced, copied, stored, manipulated or used whole or in part of a derivative work without the written permission of the author. Wallpapers/backgrounds cannot be used on other websites as downloadable desktop wallpapers. Any other use is prohibited.
All of the photos on this site are available for commercial or personal licensing.
(A license just means i agree to let you use a photo - the type of use you intend defines the type of license.
Photographs can now be purchased as downloads or prints from my SmugMug Gallery. ** The versions of the photos in the SmugMug gallery are much higher quality jpg's than the free photos available on this site.
You can buy digital downloads in 3 sizes. A digital download is simply a copy of the image file, sized in one of three ways.
A 1Mpix image is roughly 1 megapixel in size. In English, that means a square 1 megapixel image would be about 1000 pixels wide and 1000 pixels high. For comparison, the most common resolution for computer monitors is 1024x768. So a 1Mpix image is a bit larger than common monitor resolutions.
A 4Mpix image is 4 megapixels. This is a size that allows for quality printing at most reasonable sizes. If you want to print at really large poster sizes, you would probably want a larger image.
An Original image is the exact image that has been put online. It is the original size of the image, identical in every way.
Prices for downloads are as follows.....
