Obtain a Release for Copyright-Protected Images

Neither Walmart Photo Centers nor Walmart Digital Photo Center will copy a photograph that is signed, stamped, or otherwise identified by any photographer or studio, unless we are presented with a signed Copyright Release from the photographer or studio.

In addition, we will not copy a photograph that appears to have been taken by a professional photographer or studio, even if it is not marked with any sort of copyright, unless we are presented with a signed Copyright Release from the photographer or studio.

Negatives or digital images of a copyrighted image will be returned to you unprinted and you will be provided instructions on how to present Walmart.com with a signed Copyright Release. In addition, Walmart.com will not assist in the copying of any state or federal document, including but not limited to, driver's licenses, passports and social security cards.
