All images offered in the photo stock library are processed in accordance with the principles of Color Management and all photo editing is completed on film scanners and graphic monitors, which are calibrated with professional spectrophotometers. Color adjustments are processed on monitors with minimal chromatic aberration, which achieves that the produced images being faithful reproductions of their original artwork. Each photo is professionally prepared for publishing in RGB color space, the setting of white and black point dot is optimized, while maintaining the tonal range as large as possible. The initially assigned color profile does not undergo any further changes and all conversion losses are minimized. Upon downloading, the client receives a product which is ready for use without having to do any further time and cost-demanding graphics work.

Your choice to download 16-bit high quality image or 8-bit jpg format.

A significant benefit for a client is the option of downloading either the 8-bit version of the selected photo with the usual JPG extension (smaller file size sufficient for web applications or presentations in digital media), or the 16-bit version at the lossless TIFF format. The latter option is of great importance for the more demanding clients when used for high quality printing as it allows a much greater range of adjustments than the 8-bit version of the same image. High-bit depth significantly reduces color distortion resulting from the loss of data occuring when editing photos. The benefits of having images with high color depth can only be realized if such a file is available right from the very beginning of the process. All images in our portfolio are captured on professional reversal films with extra fine granularity, which are then subsequently scanned into the native 16-bit depth.

We protect your rights: No sharing with any other stock collection.

Our photo stock library offers images exclusively and solely from our own portfolio. We do not share any image collections with other stock libraries and none of our photos are available in any other stock libraries or at other suppliers and distributors. We are the sole and exclusive owners of the film originals, therefore we have full control over the entire image processing, from the initial source file creation to the final photo adjustments and thus, we can guarantee the highest quality of the final product to the client. Equally important advantage of having our own portfolio is the thorough control over the copyright of each photograph, which nowadays in the segment of RM images takes on even greater importance. Full control over the history of the image use gives our clients the assurance that photos have never been used before being included in our portfolio and no copies of our images have ever been created.

Create own template with larger dimensions than original image.

Cleggstock offers Edit Friendly images, which allow the client to create a photo of a larger dimension than the one originally purchased without losing the image quality. Edit Friendly image has one or more edges defined as a solid color, i.e. constant and precisely defined RGB values, such a version will be provided to the client free of charge as a bonus when buying a photograph. You will find these values listed under My Account/My Purchases section next to the purchased image in the Edit Friendly section. It is possible to set RGB values as the background values in the graphics editor based on the needs of each client. Then, by extending the original downloaded image in the direction of the calibrated edge the client can set such a dimension and proportion for the final image, that will suit the purpose of its use.
