Royalty-free image resource, PunchStock has entered the rights-managed licensing arena with an offering of over 125,000 rights-managed images available for designers and creative customers.

PunchStock's rights-managed collection includes images from 25 selected partners, ranging from mainstream collections like Stock Connection and Index Stock to smaller, niche collections like Stockfood, Alaska Stock, Oceans-Image, and The Robert Harding Picture Library, as well as up-and-coming collections like Mise En Beaute and Arcangel Images.

PunchStock is also continuing to grow its own rights-managed UpperCut Images collection to more than 30,000 unique images. UpperCut Images is a high-end collection of rights-managed imagery created by top photographers such as Bob Stevens, Michael Grecco, Michelle Pedone and Steve Bonini.

The addition of the new rights-managed offerings is just one way PunchStock is expanding and improving its selection and services to graphic designers and image professionals. PunchStock.co.uk has also been newly redesigned and now allows designers to quickly find and price rights-managed images with a special rights managed search tab and an online pricing calculator, making it easier than ever to find the ideal images for any creative project.
