3. If I purchase the wrong image as a digital file, can I swap it for another one?

Unfortunately no, once you have a digital file you can't just give it back as there is no way for us to verify that all copies have been permanently deleted, so choose carefully.

4. How do I receive the photos or video clips that I've ordered as digital files?

Click on the 'Log In' link... login to your account if you aren't already logged in... click on downloads. (See instructional video below)

Safari may block the download function... this is just a browser permission issue. View instructions here to overcome this problem.
