Terms of Free Photo Use
With all the work that goes into creating the photos here, David would like to allow as many people as possible to enjoy them, including those who are not interested in purchasing the photos or using them for commercial purposes. In that spirit, all images you see here are licensed Creative Commons, Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike. There are, however, limitations on free usage, so please read and understand this page before deciding to use an image from Wild Retina.

Free use of the images requires that you provide a link to www.wildretina.com as credit. Crediting David Carillet is certainly appreciated, but this should be an optional addition, not an alternative. A hyperlink must be used.NonCommercial use
As stated in the conditions of the noncommercial license, you are free:
to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work
to Remix — to adapt the work
Defining noncommercial use can be a bit of a gray area in some situations, and as such the list at right contains some examples to help you distinguish between what is accepted and what is not.
Note that usage is determined by a variety of factors, not just whether or not any revenue is gained from the usage. If you wish to use an image for commercial purposes, please see the photo sales page and terms of commercial use page to learn more. Purchasing an image eliminates many limitations on its use and grants you a high resolution file to accomodate commercial uses. Licensing fees are priced well below the major stock websites.
Images used freely online should be displayed no larger than the resolution used on Wild Retina.
