We have built up a substantial collection of plant photographs and continue to add more. These were all taken by the author of Plant Base over a period of many years.
Virtually all photographs are from digital cameras, apart from a few very old ones. Image quality and size vary due to the age of the images. With the improving capability of digital cameras some of the older photos are repaced from time to time with better ones. We are also continuously adding to the collection.
For our software products we also use photographs that have been contributed by other people, for which we are very grateful and ownership is attributed accordingly.
Our images on this website and in the software products are covered by copyright. Personal use is freely allowed, subject to the terms of this Creative Commons licence - Attribtion-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported. Commercial use is not allowed without prior permission from us and may involve payment of a small reproduction licencing fee. However, there are some business use exceptions so please check our copyright information for details. If in doubt then please ask us first.
In previous years we supplied images for commercial reproduction as a stock photography service, but no longer have time and resources to handle the administration involved. If you need an image for business use, just email us and we will do our best. Please be patient as it is not always possible to respond quickly.
An example selection of plant photos can be viewed in our Picture Gallery. These images are as used in our Plant Base software.
