Republishing Photos & Illustrations
We are working hard to make more and more of our images available.
Images shot by California Healthline or KFF Health News staff photographers or reporters may be available for republication for noncommercial purposes. We often contract with freelance photographers who usually, but not always, allow their work to be published by our media partners.
Generally, if a photo caption credits “California Healthline” as the image source, it is likely you can republish that image, but you must contact us. Most NPR-credited photos are also available.
When KFF Health News licenses editorial photos from wire services like The Associated Press and Getty Images, we cannot grant republishing rights to those, while we can for some Getty Images illustrations.
When using our images, you will be advised to:
- Maintain correct caption information.
- Credit the photographer and California Healthline in the caption. For example: (Heidi de Marco/California Healthline)
- Do not digitally alter images.
No. See details on our Creative Commons license.
