Order digital copies of our photographs

Photographic ReprintsDo you see a photograph in our Photograph Collection online that you just have to have? Are you a researcher, web designer or media producer who needs a photograph for your project? Do you have a school history paper and need the perfect photograph to illustrate your text? We can help!

You are welcome to use the low-resolution (100 dpi) images offered online for personal or research use free of charge as long as you give the museum credit in this format: Clark County Historical Museum, (project identifier here).

For higher resolutions (300 – 600 dpi) for all uses, and for commercial purposes at any resolution, use the form below to obtain permission to use the images and to order digital copies. A flat fee of $25 is charged for each image requested. This helps offset the costs of administration, and of storing and preserving both our physical and digital collections. Additional fees, rights and permissions for photo usage vary by type of use. Once you have paid for your images, they will be placed in a password-protected dropbox for your access. All fees are per image and per use.

Note: See the bottom of the image data page to find the Project Identifier number required by the order form (beginning with ‘cchm’, ‘cmos’ or ‘cmpn’) and to determine whether the original was scanned at 300 or 600 dpi; this is the resolution you will receive.
