License conditions

What exactly is a license to pictures/photos?

For a license-free picture license-free picture ("RF", "royalty-free", "license-free"), the price is primarily based on the size of the picture and the client may use the picture without limitations, albeit with some caveats, while for a licensed picture licensed picture ("RM", "rights managed", "licensed"), the price is generally based on the type of use (for media, e.g. advertising, books, publications, books, catalogs, etc.), the print run, publication area, etc.

Agsui licenses for photos/digital pictures

  1. Standard license (private and commercial)

Our standard license grants you a lifetime usage right unlimited in time and space for unlimited print runs without onward sales. You may use our files for all illustrative purposes in all media (electronic and print). Agsui digital pictures/photos may be used for almost any purpose:

  • Electronic use - Internet: smartphones – desktop backgrounds, (wallpapers), websites, web banners, newsletters, PDF documents, blogs, e-mails, slideshows, TV & video presentations, splash screens, films, etc.
  • Print use:books, magazine articles, brochures, document illustrations, booklets, billboards, business cards, stationery, posters, advertising, packaging, etc.

The usage right for the photo may be transfered insofar as this takes place within the fulfillment of a client project. Repeated use in projects for different clients is permitted using the ID number.


The client may also transfer files to third parties in the context of necessary and common working processes (e.g. printing presses) which are integrated into the production process and without which production would not be possible. These third parties and any subcontractors have no further right to use the work and may not extract or use the transfered files for any other purposes. The client is responsible to AGSUI for compliance with these requirements by third parties/subcontractors.


The digitalized pictures and photographic works may be modified by the client for its intended use. Not permitted are modifications which affect the original message of the image in such a way that AGSUI and/or the photographer or artist are subject to personal negative repercussions such as damage to their reputations or modifications which are limited or prohibited by further rights (personal rights, trademarks, etc.). In these cases express authorization must be obtained from the holder of the right.



Please note:


copying and duplication for commercial reasons, e.g. of advertising material such as business cards, brochures, etc. is permitted.


Not permitted is the copying of photos/pictures for onward sale, including the mass production of posters, t-shirts etc. or the renting of photos/pictures. These uses require the conclusion of an additional paid license agreement. The prices of the pictures or photos are based on the number of copies made. Inquiries by e-mail to: order@agsui.com




Time limitation of the duration of use for download licenses


There is no time limitation for downloading pictures/photos.




  1. Industry license
  • The industry license gives you the same rights as the standard license, as well as allowing you to use our files for your own business model and industrial use intended for onward sale. Here again, no time or spatial limitations apply.
  • Print runs from 1 to unlimited prices upon request.
  • Examples of use: posters, post cards, calendars, t-shirts, templates for fabrics, wallpaper, templates (websites, newsletters, etc.), video clips for resale, video applications and any other projects for sale, etc.




The pictures/photos are protected by copyright. Use of the copyright © AGSUI during use is welcome, but not required. In no case involving a picture/photo from AGSUI may the impression be created, either intentionally or negligently, that use of the content is free of other rights.

Defective image files may not be used as the basis for further claims other than for their free replacement or, at most, reimbursement of the purchase price paid. Claims may not be made against AGSUI if the files are defective due to modifications made by the purchaser. Claims may only be made within 3 days of the transaction. Beyond this point the delivery will be considered as accepted.
