I can't see my images after returning from PayPal

What can I do if my download fails?


The images you have licensed will be available on our site for one hour. Simply go back to our site on the same PC or tablet without closing your browser and you will be presented with the "Download Area" button. Clicking that will take you to the download area, where you can download your images again.

What if I lose the images or forget to download my images within an hour?


We do not ask you to register, so you have no account with us. Therefore we cannot recover the images for which you have purchased licenses but lost or not downloaded the image. To recover the images you will have to re-purchase them.

What is the Publishers' refund policy?


The Publishers are under no obligation to refund you for any purchase, unless there is a serious problem with the image. In this situation please notify 99cimages via Twitter and we will liaise with the Publisher to arrange for a prompt refund.

What format will the images come in?


All photographs are delivered in JPEG format. Illustrations can be in Vector (EPS) or JPEG format. JPEG (jaypeg) is the standard compressed format for all photographs. EPS format is a vector, for which you will need a vector graphic program such as Adobe Illustrator. JPEG images may contain embedded color profiles.

What size are the images?


The images are approximately A4 or higher at 300dpi. You can find the size of any image on the single image view, which you get to by clicking (or tapping) on the image thumbnail. Vector illustrations can be re-sized without any loss of quality. The vector will download as an EPS file and you should have an application that supports Vector images such as Adobe Illustrator Version 8 or higher.

What can I use my image for?


Please refer to the terms of the Publisher License. This is the agreement which you enter with the Publisher which sets out the terms under which you can use the image. Within this document it states that each license provides for ONE individual human user to use an image for ONE Permitted Use only. Each individual human user must pay a separate license fee for each Permitted Use.
