Welcome to the edgypix stock photo library. We hope you will find some great images here for your print and web publications. We specialize in images with interesting shapes and subtle colours, inspired mainly by the natural world and by outdoor activities, but also by man-made structures. We're based in the UK, but our photographs are available worldwide through this site – browse the image library and buy securely on-line!

Our image library includes photos of trekking and hiking in the mountains of Morocco and Switzerland, in the wild landscape of Iceland, among the fells of the English Lake District. Springtime blossoms, vivid summer flowers, rich autumn colours, and a scattering of light early-winter snow reflect the changing seasons. And we have close-ups and impressionistic images that are ideal for setting a mood.

The site is designed to be easy to use and to download quickly – please let us know if you experience any technical problems.


edgypix differs from some other on-line image libraries in that our thumbnails are displayed in galleries of related images, rather than using only a keyword search; the Image Library page has an illustrated overview of the groups of categories, and links to the category listings. The Keywords page lists the keywords with the most entries.There's a search facility on the home page, which we're developing some more, though we feel that's not always the optimum way to locate and select the best images.

Within each category – which typically contains 15 to 25 images – clicking on a thumbnail image will open a page giving details of the file sizes available, prices, download sizes, and a larger image. You are free to use this image in dummy layouts and web pages – it contains a visible watermark which is intended to prevent misuse, but which we hope is not too intrusive.

There are more details about navigating through the site on the How to Use page.

  Your Usage Rights

Once you have purchased an edgypix image you may normally use it for any print or web application, or in TV commercials, packaging and other promotional media – and you may use it as many times as you like within your organisation. However there are a few reasonable restrictions, which are detailed on the Rights page.

  Our Refund Policy

If you are dissatisfied with our service and you tell us before you have downloaded your images, we will refund to the card account used for the purchase the amount you paid. Contact edgypix within 7 days of the purchase explaining the reason for your dissatisfaction.

If you have downloaded your image(s) and experience technical problems we will do our best to resolve them. If we are unable to do so we will (at our ultimate discretion) refund the purchase price, after we have received from you a declaration that you have deleted the image(s) from your computer and have not retained any copy or provided a copy to anyone else. Once we have received your formal declaration we will send email confirmation that the return has been completed, plus a reminder of the penalties for any unauthorized use of images.

For practical reasons, purchases are considered final at 14 days from the original purchase date.
