Images are available in hi-res jpeg format as electronic downloads from the Loop site. Alternatively, the tiff originals are available offline as 50MB files for both editorial and commercial use. Contact Loop if tiff originals are required.

Downloading files electronically

After pricing an image and passing through the payment gateway, there will be a short wait while payment is approved and the image file is prepared for download. The user will then receive notification that files are available for download along with details of the image license, plus a link to the My Downloads section of the Loop site. The email also contains a link to the My Purchases area of the site where the user can see the status of any previous purchase or impending payment made on the site.

Each image is a separate download and is delivered as a ZIP file. The ZIP file includes:

  • the image file as a hi-res jpeg
  • XMP sidecar with usage rights
  • text file with usage rights

The usage rights are also embedded into the image file. The usage rights will indicate what the license allows and who the licensee is. For example:

Usage rights agreed upon for this image are: United Kingdom, Editorial/Publishing, Magazine.Consumer, Double page, Up to 500,000 Licensed to Tom Smith / Smith Design Co.

You can download the images for up to 96 hours. After that point, you need to contact Loop Images if you need to retrieve the file again. Each image needs to be downloaded individually.

All historical purchases for any licensing type can be found on the Loop site under the My Purchases link in the top header.
