  • for displaying purchased photos larger than 800 x 600 pixels on the web.
  • for using purchased photos in print on demand products, such as CafePress products, posters, cards, etc.
  • to modify purchased photos to be placed on t-shirts, mugs, posters, templates or other items, to be sold to others for consumption, reproduction or re-sale.
  • to reproduce purchased photos in printed press or to use in print publications exceeding print runs of 50,000 copies.

Please contact 23 photos of to discuss extended licenses for any of the cases listed above.

Some of the photos featured on 23 photos of aren't for sale. Why is that?

It is impossible to shoot street scenes and everyday life in without having people appear in the final product. 23 photos of images include many photos of people - some very much the focus of the photograph, others where people just make up the background noise.

Whilst all types of photos make up the content of 23 photos of we are very particular about choosing which photographs we offer for sale.

At 23 photos of we make every effort to avoid offering for sale any photo featuring a person without their written consent. In essence this means that all photos selected to be offered for sale via the 23 photos of online store have gone through the following vetting process:

  • If there is a photo where a person is clearly the main subject of the photograph and that person is recognisable, that photo will not be offered for sale on 23 photos of.
  • If there is a photo where a person is secondary to the main focus of the photo and that person's face is clearly recognizable, that photo will not be offered for sale on 23 photos of.

Sometimes it means we have to make a judgement call as to whether or not to offer a photo for sale. We try to err on the conservative when making these judgement calls.

So far that has meant removing from the store a number of photos that are available for viewing online.

We do however offer photos containing people where those people are not clearly recognizable in the following cases:

  • where the person has there back to the camera
  • where the person in question is blurred for effect
  • where the person in question is at distance
  • when the person in question is part of a crowd

So hopefully the only people that make it into photographs offered for sale on 23 photos of are unrecognisable. That is definitely our aim and if we have failed in regards to any photograph you come across please don't hesitate to contact us and we shall investigate the matter further.
