As a subscriber you can purchase and download any of the high resolution images you have created. When you decide to purchase an image, click on the “Add to shopping Cart” link in the enlarged view of the image thumbnail.

On the left side of the page, under your login information, you can view your cart & review your selections. Make sure to delete any images you don’t want to purchase. Once you click on “Purchase”, the design is yours to download once it is ready.

Your image selection and purchase has now been deducted from the balance of images available in your package. You can see the list of images you have purchased at any time by going to “Purchased Images” folder at the top left of your screen.

Your selection then goes through an image conversion process and is made available for you to download within 1 to 10 minutes but depending upon internet traffic it may take longer. You will receive notification that your selected image is available on your “Purchased Images” page. The status will start by displaying “Not ready” when you first select it and then change to “Ready”. At that point you can click on the order number and download it to your desktop. Your purchased images remain in your “Purchased Images” folder for 30 days and are available for you to download multiple times within that time period.

The maximum “standard” downloadable processed image size that comes with your subscription package is 24”x 24” at 300 dpi x 300 dpi. All processed images that are larger tan 24”x 24” are automatically constrained to 24”x 24” for customer download.
