To begin the licensing process, send an email to with the following information:

  • Project title, publisher, and any other institutional affiliation
  • Timeline for receiving images

  • Publication type, print run, cost, and usage (ie. Full page image, 1/4 page, etc.)
  • File type, size, and resolution required

The FIDM Museum requires a $100 Licensing Fee per image per use in the publication.

For example, if the image will be used in both a print and ebook version of the book, that is 2 uses of the image and the fee will be $200.00.

If an object is not yet photographed, a Photography Fee will be required, as well as 3 months to schedule a special photography session.

If the photos are already available, and your request is approved, the Museum will require 1 month from the date of the initial request to provide the digital image(s).

Should you need the images sooner, a Rush Fee may apply.

The FIDM Museum requires payment before releasing high resolution images.

All licensing fees are to be paid to FIDM Museum & Library, Inc. via check or money order.
