Rights-managed photography — now at Dissolve
Sometimes you need more from your photographs. You need images that don’t merely catch eyes, but beckon them to linger. Images that don’t simply portray a subject, but make people see that subject in a new light. Or sometimes you need images that are more than professional and polished — you need ones that are artful and unforgettable.
Now you can find that, in Dissolve’s new rights-managed photography collection.
Our carefully edited collection of more than 50,000 RM images can help you create distinctive looks for your most important, highest-profile projects. You won’t find outtakes or similars — only iconic, one-of-a-kind hero shots, and intelligently differentiated series based on subject, aesthetic, and composition.
Because rights-managed photographs may be licensed exclusively by territory and/or industry, they’re ideal for uses where something “recognizably stock” would be unacceptable – such as flagship brand collateral, Fortune 500 advertising campaigns, large outdoor buys, and layouts in major magazines or media outlets.
All images are cleared for commercial use, and, upon request, our researchers can provide license history for an image by industry, medium, and geography. The images may also be licensed for specific uses, such as presentation media or regional use, at a much lower cost.
