Image bank Utrecht University

How does the image bank work?

The Utrecht University Image Bank contains over 5.000 photos for use in communication resources. This page provides an overview of how the Image Bank works.

ACCESSING PHOTOGRAPHIC CONTENT FROM THE IMAGE BANK

You need an account to order or download photographic content from the Image Bank. Click on register in the menu to apply for an account. Once you have an account, you can log in by clicking on 'Log in' in the menu. You can then manage, order and download selections of images.

WHAT AM I ALLOWED AND NOT ALLOWED TO DO WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHIC CONTENT?

In order to use photographic content from the Image Bank, you will have to meet some conditions. Using photos in a way that does not meet these conditions may lead to a claim by the photographer. The resulting costs will be at the expense of the person who published the content. By logging into the Image Bank, you will automatically agree with the Terms of Use.

SEARCH BAR AND FILTERS

You can use the search bar to search based on key words or parts of key words. You can read how to search quickly and effectively on key words on the page Smart Search.

The button 'More search options' will let you search with the search filters.

Social media: whether or not photos can be used on those platforms.

ORDERING OR DIRECTLY DOWNLOADING PHOTOGRAPHIC CONTENT

Log in with your account information to the Image Bank. Some images can be downloaded directly, others have to be ordered. You can tell the difference by means of the direct download icon and the order icon (a plus sign). Select your images by clicking on the order icon. Go to your shopping cart in the menu to actually order the image. After your order has been approved, you will receive an email with a link to download the images.

RUSH ORDER OR ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

The delivery time for photographic content is three days at most (due to the weekend), but is often less than that. If you are in a hurry to receive your order or have other questions, please contact the central administrator of the Image Bank or the liaison for your faculty or office.

NO SUITABLE IMAGES IN THE IMAGE BANK?

For matters concerning Utrecht University, university employees can utilise a stock company that has been contracted by the university. You can read more about this on the Intranet (only in Dutch).
