Royal Museums Greenwich – home to the National Maritime Museum, Royal Observatory, the Queen’s House and Cutty Sark – has relaunched its image library.

Royal Museums Greenwich Images contains stunning images from their exceptional collections of over 4 million objects. Clients can search, license and instantly download film footage and high-quality images of paintings, prints and drawings, maps and charts, scientific instruments, ship plans, historic photographs, manuscripts, ship models, antiquities and uniforms.

A new section of the website is dedicated to film licensing, including rare maritime footage, contemporary drone clips of Greenwich, and films from the Alan Villiers collection, which document voyages in sailing ships from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Images and footage can be licensed directly from the newly upgraded Images website, for various media, ranging from film production and publishing through to digital use in online content, apps and eBooks.

The image library is powered by Capture Ltd, who have worked with Royal Museums Greenwich for over a decade.

Speaking of the new image library, Tina Warner, Image and Media Sales Licensing Manager at Royal Museums Greenwich, commented:

“It has been a pleasure to work closely with the Capture team on the website upgrade. They’ve been able to customise the structure and functionality to ensure it meets our requirements. We are very excited about the increased functionality, enhanced user journey and experience.

We are delighted with the new website and look forward to its continued development in the future.”

Capture Ltd is a digital asset management and media library systems and services provider, with a large footprint in the cultural and heritage sector, specialising in media management, rights, licensing, metadata, finance and royalties.

Simon Mallindine, Chief Technology Officer at Capture Ltd, notes:

“In today’s world, creating digital engagement has never been so important for cultural and heritage institutions. The upgraded image library – with a fresh design and more flexibility – gives Royal Museums Greenwich a platform to showcase their remarkable imagery and photography, available to license online.

It has been, and always is, a delight to work with the RMG team, and we look forward to this next chapter.”
