Crediting photos
The name of the photographer is on the photo. Moreover, all images contain metadata, such as caption and other information on where and when the photo was taken. These data are readable by almost all image manipulation programmes. By embedding the data in the files, we hope users will find it easier to make use of the images and their associated information. It should also be easier to give credit where credit is due.

Using photos
The photos are for non-commercial use only and must be attributed. They cannot be used for commercial purpose unless permission has been obtained. Contact the image bank manager for more information.


We welcome feedback on the accuracy of the information provided with each image and on suggestions for improvements, such as topics on which you would like to see photos.
