We know that unless you have the knowledge and skills to understand how to use them with impact, you’re not going to get the best out of our beautiful images.

Please note, you need to cancel before the renewal date. We cannot offer refunds if you forget to cancel before this date.

What size and orientation are the images?

For Brighten the images are plenty big enough for social media but not too big that they will use up all the space on your computer! Brighten images are 1000pixels on the longest side, and saved in high resolution 300dpi for digital images and 72dpi for film.

For Brilliance the images are big enough to use both online and in printed marketing collateral. Brilliance images are 2400pixels on the longest side, 300dpi for digital, 72dpi for film.

You can of course change the size and resolution yourself.

The images are a mixture of landscape and portrait and can easily be cropped for use on social media and beyond.

If I cancel, can I continue to use the images?

Unfortunately not. If you choose to cancel your subscription, you are not entitled to re-post or re-use any Material that you have already used after your subscription ends. Nor are you entitled to post/use any Material that you have previously downloaded from our website but have not yet posted/used.
