Our services for your success!
Our research team is here for you whether you need to look for that one special image or would like us to do a whole project for you. Our experienced and creative picture researchers are experts in their fields and are amply supported by the historians who create our captions and keywords. Our research is free of charge and without any obligation on your part, so why not contact us?
As a registered user you can download high res images directly via our website or order them via the shopping cart. We also welcome orders by phone or email. We are happy to provide registered clients with high res files for layout free of charge and we can re-scan images to your desired size at short notice.
akg-images still have a physical archive of images and so we are able to scan particular details for you in-house at no extra cost. Looking for more colour? B/w photographs, prints and engravings can be professionally coloured for you at no extra cost.
The usage of our images is subject to licensing fee. Our licensing department will tailor the licence fee to your individual project and, wherever possible, will take your budget constraints into consideration. Looking for a price agreement for your project or the whole company? Talk to one of our experienced licensing staff by phone or email.
Our core images are captioned and keyworded by a large in-house team of experienced historians. Each of them have expert academic knowledge and our clients can rely on the accuracy of the captions we provide. On request we are also happy to contact our partner agencies for more information.
We aim to make the use of our images as easy as possible for you. In general we license the photographic rights in an image but depending on the image itself there may be additional copyrights to be cleared. Artistic copyrights, trademark rights or personality rights have to be cleared separately by the user. Images with additional rights are marked as such and we supply additional information on rights holders wherever known.
