Usage Guidelines

As with any image licensing service...

We have a few guidelines on what is appropriate use of the images on this site. By respecting these guidelines, you are supporting, not just the artist, but the creative process which makes these images available.

Yes, you may…

Soulful Art Image Licensing provides a wide variety of high-resolution, downloadable images to use in your worship, educational, and presentation activities. Acceptable use of these images includes:

  • Worship bulletins
  • Personal Zoom backgrounds and screen savers
  • Power Point displays during meetings, classes, and other educational venues
  • Annual reports and quarterly updates
  • Banners (temporary use)
  • Websites (an image on a website is considered a onetime use and does not expire after a year)
  • Newsletters and flyers
  • The images you download are for your use and your projects only

When you purchase and download a single image for one of the above uses, it grants you permission for a one-time use of the image. For example, if you use an image on your church bulletins on a given day, this is qualifies as a one-time use. But if you plan to use the same image in a worship service later in the year, or for another occasion, you must download it again (unless you have an All Access Pass subscription, which grants you unlimited use during a 12 month period).

When you purchase and download one or more images to use in one of the above ways, you are granted a licensed right to use the images for these purposes.

If you would like to use the images on this site for any other purpose, check out “Additional Uses” below.
