Ordering Images

To order an image, simply click the “Purchase” button (displayed beneath the image when viewed in the Item page). Please note: if you have not registered on the system, you will need to provide some basic details in order to continue with your purchase. Once logged in to the system, you will then be required to select the type of image you like – you can choose between an electronic file copied to CD, or high-quality prints on either glossy or matte photographic paper (please note that our images are of varying dimensions and may not fill the entire page).

Costs per image are outlined below:-

Image Type Image Size Cost per image
Hi-resolution digital image on CD JPEG (approx. 15MB) £5.00
High quality print on Glossy or Matte photo paper A5 (approx. 8” x 6”) £5.00
A4 (approx. 12” x 8”) £7.00
A3 (approx. 17” x 12”) £10.00

When ordering an image, you will be required to state your intended purpose for using the image – whether for personal, educational or commercial use. Should you wish to use an image for publication, please make the appropriate choice – an additional charge will usually be made in these circumstances and we will contact you regarding this as we process your order. For more information on how the images may be used, please consult our Terms and Conditions page.

Once an order is received, we will contact you to confirm payment – we accept telephone payments from credit or debit cards, or alternatively you can pay by posting a cheque made payable to Aberdeen City Council. Regrettably, we are currently unable to accept online payments although this is a development we soon hope to have in place. Following confirmation of payment, we will despatch your order by post. We aim to fulfil all photographic orders within 10 days.

If you have any queries regarding ordering images after reading this information, please contact us and we will be happy to assist.
