Once you have found an image you wish to use in your feature, there are 2 ways to download the image from Press Loft. Please note that you must be logged into your Press Loft account to download images.

Direct Download
Download individual images straight to your computer. You will also receive a notification email including another copy of the image and caption information for crediting the image.

Download to Basket
Download multiple images at once by using the Basket toolbar on the bottom of your screen. To add images simply select the Add to Basket icon on the image or drag and drop the image in the toolbar. You can select multiple images this way.

Once you have selected all of your images you can then download by sending them to yourself via email. You will receive a copy of the image and all caption information to credit the images. Please note that when downloading multiple images, they will be sent in groups of 3 or 4 depending on file sizes.

You can also opt to 'share' your basket; this will provide you with a link to a full bag of your selected images.

If you are having trouble receiving your downloaded images, please check the following: 

The emails may have been mistaken as Spam
Every so often, our emails will get marked as Spam or Trash. Please search your Spam and Trash folder for a message from Press Loft. Marking it as "Not Spam" or adding in your address book will ensure that you receive future emails.

Ensure that your email account is not full
Most of the time, email accounts have a maximum size of a few GB. If your cap is nearly reached, you will not be able to receive large messages any more until you have cleared enough space. 

None of the above? Drop us en email at so we can resend you the latest images that you downloaded or log in on Press Loft and re-download your images from “Your Previous Downloads”
