From archived website:
Hemera stands for clarity - literally.
And what better label for a provider of digital image content? We chose to name ourselves after the Greek goddess of Light (or Day), because light is the primal ingredient of photography, and dictates the quality, and resolution, of each image.
Because our image collection meets every standard of photographic and digital quality, we believe we deserve to name ourselves after the essence of light. And besides, H-E-M-E-R-A really isn't that hard to remember, is it?
We sell digital images, and we bring them to you in a variety of ways. Buy images the way you like, so you can work the way you like: on CD, DVD, for Windows or for Macintosh - or download them over the Internet, individually or through subscription.
Our images are for graphics professionals, business users and everyone else with creative needs. Our collection has all the popular image types, including stock photos, clip art, illustrations, Photo Clip Art, and our signature image type, the Hemera Photo-Objects image.
