Founded in 2000, Heritage Images offers a commercial platform for the licensing of heritage collections and has become established as a one-stop shop for heritage imagery.
This website contains a carefully edited collection of rare and original images from a number of respected national and international heritage institutions and private collections. It provides comprehensive coverage of historical and popular culture subject matter over a range of image types including paintings, illustrations, engravings, sculpture, photographs, artefacts, maps, cartoons, illuminated manuscripts, historical documents, film and TV stills, and footage.
Heritage Images has established industry peak standards for its indexation and keywording and has built a powerful database schema to create a sophisticated keywording hierarchy. This enables each image to have a high level of metadata, which ensures optimum image retrieval.Heritage Image Partnership Ltd
