Are there any limits to how or what I can use the photo for?
See the Image Usage Agreement for full details - basically, most uses are permitted except reselling or posting them as stock images, or anything that defames or slanders the models in the photo.
You will not want to use them in logos either because you'll probably want the copyright to the logo.. and the photographer will still hold the copyright to the photo you have integrated into your logo.. so that might not work for you.
However, you should be aware of U.S. Fair Use laws and copyright laws that may affect your usage of the photo in question. Some photos are OK for virtually any use, whereas others may be intended more for editorial purposes, and some uses not be permitted unless your usage falls under Fair Use laws.
The responsibility of determining whether your use is legal is yours, since it's impossible for Visco Images to know what your planned usage for the photo is.
Can I get the photos in bigger sizes than it appears on this public website?
Yes, you can require images in bigger size. Use Support menu to describe a project you would like to use images for. We will calculate a special price for you.
Are there any fees for creating something, a product of some kind, and selling multiple copies of my product?
No. Just don't sell them as a stock image or alone, but it may be included in a work or product as long as the photo comprises 50% or less of the product.
Examples of prohibited uses: Re-painting the photo exactly and selling it, printing the photo on card stock and selling it as a greeting card. In these cases the photo is more than 50% of the value of the item.
I create and sell web site templates... do I have to purchase the photo once per template I create? Yes. Each template you create is a product. You should purchase the photo once for each new, individual product you create. You can resell the template as many times as you like but you owe it to the generous photographers to pay for the photo each time you put it into a new product.
