How to download a smaller resolution photo?

Most of our stock photos come in three sizes: 'Super-High', 'Medium' and 'Low' resolution in pixels. These resolutions vary from photo to photo. 

  1. Find a photo you want to download

  2. Do NOT use the download feature in the search results (the little down arrow). Click on the image itself instead to open the image detail page.

  3. Pick the image size you need or want and download it. Keep in mind that every image downloads (also of different sizes) count as one download.

Here you can see where you can pick different resolutions to download from:

Do NOT download the image from the search results itself, you will always get the highest resolution possible:
