First off, thank you for your interest in using one of my images.
I offer different types of licenses depending on your intended use(s). The page explains those distinctions -- but if you need clarification, please email me before running an image.
You may use my images for noncommercial purposes under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike (CC BY-NC-SA) license. This license allows you to use my images in a noncommercial way, provided you meet two conditions:
