About the Photos
Contributing photographers can choose among a number of different
licensing options. A default license, selected by the photographer, is associated
with each photographer account. Photographers can apply this license to all of their
photos, or they can change individual photos to have a license different
from their photographer default.
CalPhotos licenses apply to the larger image file (around 800 pixels wide) that is in CalPhotos
but not to high resolution versions of the images which CalPhotos does not store, and not to
the smaller thumbnail images. Photographers
can use any license they wish for their high resolution images; the license does not have to be the same
as the license used by the CalPhotos versions of their images.
Thumbnail images (128x192 pixels) may be freely used for personal or academic purposes
without prior permission under the Fair Use provisions of US copyright law as long as the photo
is clearly credited.
Below is the list of possible CalPhotos licenses.
