Image licenses

At rawpixel we are on a mission to create the best design resources for everyone. We own all the content we produce and have obtained all the neccessary model and property release so you can feel safe using our resources for both personal and commercial projects.

Rawpixel free image license

You can use any of the rawpixel free images that you download from rawpixel.com for personal and commercial purposes. However, the image copyright is still the property of rawpixel, so you cannot resell, redistribute or claim the image as your own.

In order to protect our models and our brand, images can't be used in any way that is unlawful or would imply the endorsement of either rawpixel or our models.

Here are some examples of what you can and can't do with our free images:


  • Put it on your website or blog
  • Use it as part of an advertising campaign on any media
  • Make alterations to the image, e.g. add your logo or a caption
  • Not worry about model releases. We have legal model releases for any recognizable person, allowing for commercial use of the images
  • Use it in a print run of any size
  • Incorporate the image into your merchandise - as long as the image itself is not the merchandise!
  • Print it onto a canvas for your own use or to give to your friends/family
  • Share the image with others using our links – and we'd love it if you did!


  • Claim the image as your own
  • Sell or redistribute the image. If you would like to pass the image to someone else, share our link so they can register and download it for themselves
  • Add the image to any stock site. You are welcome to add it to another free image site but this must be through a link. Users must download the image from us at Rawpixel.com
  • Sell a printed version of the image
  • Use it in any way that a reasonable person would see as offensive, libelous, obscene, immoral or illegal
  • Use it in a manner that infringes someone else’s trademark or intellectual property.

Should legal action ever become necessary (and we hope it doesn't), the matter would be resolved in UK courts.

And of course, if you still aren't sure, just ask us.

Public domain images

Our Vintage Illustrations collection includes copies of old illustrations that we believe are in the Public Domain. We have digitalised many of these items from original prints and spent many hours enhancing the images to create high quality digital copies.

We do not claim copyright of these Public Domain images, however if you wish to download these images from Our Site you can only use them in accordance with Our Terms and Conditions and the Image License above.

Other copies of these Public Domain illustrations may be available elsewhere without the restrictions of our Image License.

We only add Public Domain items where we believe they are in the Public Domain in accordance with UK Intellectual Property law, which is typically life of the author plus 70 years. We also only add Public Domain items if we believe they can be used commercially without infringing the rights of third parties.

Whilst we conduct extensive research to try to identify any Intellectual Property or other rights prior to adding any items which we believe to be in the Public Domain to our collection we do not guarantee that no Intellectual Property or other rights exist.

It is solely your responsibility to ensure that your use of any item you download from our Site does not infringe on the rights of any third parties.
