What are the privileges of membership?

Members are entitled to commissions from images that were licensed/purchased over the ImagesPhilippines website. As owner of the images, the member photographer will be entitled to at least the minimum base price he/she defined, plus a significant percentage of the additional charges that will be asked of the purchaser based on the usage of the image bought. It is not uncommon for contributors to earn a few hundred thousand pesos from photographs licensed through this website.

A web page featuring the contributor's profile allows site visitors to appreciate the works of specific photographers. An online form is also provided for site visitors to contact the Photographers directly to hire them for photo shoots or other opportunities.

Browsing the Database

How do I use the search engine?

EACOMM Corporation's powerful image search engine is used to browse ImagesPhilippines' ever growing number of images. Simply type in the type of images you wish to view, and the search engine will output possible matches for your query. The search engine finds photographs that "MATCH ALL" the keywords typed into the search box, thus narrowing down your search for every keyword you include in your query. If you wish to broaded the search, you can change your search to "MATCH ANY".

We've also added the option to view search results from Flickr.com as well as from Google Images. Note, however, that Imagesphilippines.com does not provide licensing services for images found through these two websites.

Image Licensing/Purchasing

Why do I need to purchase/license and image?

The images contained in this website are owned by our contributors. ImagesPhilippines requested their permission to display their works in this website to promote the Philippines and the talent of our local photographers and artists. As such, if you intend to use any image in this collection and make money from it, it is only fair that the photographer who took it gets a small fee for your use of his image.

Downloading and using the images in this site FOR FREE, as they appear in this site, is permissable as long as the following conditions are met:

  1. The image will not be used commercially.
  2. The Photographer and ImagesPhilippines must be properly acknowledge as the source of the image.
  3. The ImagesPhilippines Watermark is not removed or changed in any way.

If you wish to use an image from this site commercially, or you wish to have a high resolution version of our images, then you will have to purchase/license the image.

How do I purchase/license an image?

You can purchase/license an image by clicking on the request for quotation link. This link launches the request for quotation form that is discussed in more detail below.

What does the Request for Quotation form do?

To determine the price you have to pay for use of an image, you must use the Request for Quotation Form. Fill-up the personal information requirements in detail, and make sure your e-mail, address and phone numbers are entered correctly.

You then must select the volume/usage of the image. This is the main basis for pricing the photograph. Will it be used for a few annual reports distributed to a few hundred people or will you be using it as a backdrop for your feature film?

You will then be asked which currency you prefer to pay for the image. We currently only accept US Dollars or Philippine Peso payments

The last field is a text box that requires you to "Describe in detail how the image is to be used." This field is VERY IMPORTANT as it will be used to determine the final pricing that will be quoted. Please fill out this field as detailed as possible. What you write here may lower or increase the licensing quotation. Note that we take end user usage very seriously and will pursue misrepresentation of image usage to the fullest.

I completed the form. What next?

Once done, simply submit the form and you will immediately recieve an email with the baseline price quotation. If you feel that the quote is acceptable just reply to the email with BUY IMAGE in the subject line. Note that we get HUNDREDS of quotation requests and thus we will not follow up on automated quotations. We do however make it a point to answer succeeding email replies from the initial automatic quotation email so please don't hesitate to ask questions via email by replying to the initial quote.

Can I request for a discount?

YES. Our account executives are more than willing to provide discounted rates, especially for special cases such as if the image will be used for a charitable cause. Final decision on the price of the image lies on the management of ImagesPhilippines and the contributing photographer.

Don't be afraid to haggle, we are very open to negotiation concerning our pricing scheme.

How do I get my purchase?

Once we receive payment from your purchase we will provide you access to our FTP Server for you to download the image at your leisure. For bulk purchases, we can also send the files in DVD or CD-ROM format via express courier (subject to additional charges)

Can I get my purchase framed/printed out?

YES. We can have your purchased image printed out and/or framed at your desired size. We can provide the image you bought at any size (wallet size to panaflex sheets for billboards), and at any volume (one image file or a thousand postcards). Simply let us know you want this done when requesting for your quotation so we can give you the additional cost.
