There are also 50 templates in our template gallery and 10 new templates are added every month available to Brilliance Members only.

Do I need to credit The Luminous?

Where can I use the images?

There are two membership levels available to you, Brighten & Brilliance. With both memberships you can use the images to market your business on social media. With Brilliance you can also use the images in all your online and print marketing, from website to brochures, flyers and PDFs.

There are so many ways you can utilise the imagery including :

- SOCIAL MEDIA (Brighten & Brilliance) : Instagram posts for feed and stories, facebook covers, Pinterest graphics, blog post graphics…
- WEBSITE GRAPHICS (Brilliance only): banners, headers, buttons, backgrounds…
- MARKETING COLLATERAL (Brilliance only) : Brochures, Leaflets, PDFs, Flyers

For the full image license, please read our Subscription Terms.

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.

Yes, absolutely! Brighten members are welcome to upgrade to a Brilliance membership at any time.
