Photoshare Orders

Photoshare is free-of-charge strictly for nonprofit educational use.

 

  • All requests are individually reviewed by Photoshare staff to ensure that images are used in a context that fairly represents the real situation, subject identity, and physical location of the image. 
  • When searching for images please keep in mind that Photoshare images are intended for journalistic, documentary use under the protocols of editorial photography.
  • If your request is for illustrative purposes, you may be asked to provide additional information and/or a draft of your material, substitute original selections with more relevant alternatives, meet other conditions of use, or utilize a more appropriate photo resource such as a commercial stock photo agency.

Order Processing

  • Photoshare orders are processed continuously during office hours (M-F | 9am - 5pm EST).
  • After checkout, most orders are processed within a couple of hours, although we do ask users to allow for 1 business day for order processing and fulfillment.
  • If your request is approved, you will receive an email with a link to your approved order. Users can download their free copies for one-time use. All orders are accessible for review by clicking 'My Account'.
