Buying and using premium images

Last updated: 12 May 2015


VideoScribe 2.2.0 introduced thousands of new, premium images from professional artists into the image library.

Some premium images are free to download and others are available to buy.

Who can buy premium images?

Premium images are available to VideoScribe Pro users only.

You can’t use premium images during a free trial or if you have a company wide subscription.

How much do premium images cost?

Premium images are added to VideoScribe by professional artists who have signed up to contribute to our Community Exchange programme.

Community Exchange contributors decide how much to sell their images for. They can make images free to download if they wish.

Images shown with a red banner are available to buy. Simply click the image to see its price.

Images shown with a blue banner are free to download.
