Stockfreeimages will not charge customers for downloading the files at web small size. Additional plans with access to high resolution images are available.
All images downloaded from Stockfreeimages are licensed under the Royalty Free license which means you license the image once and then you can use it as many times as you like, with just a few restrictions. At this time StockFreeImages provides access to its content for free, in exchange of a link back to our website (where possible). The maximum number of copies for printed materials is 10,000 copies and the license granted is Royalty Free. Stockfreeimages also provides paid access to its content in which case the link back is optional while the maximum number of copies for printed materials is 500,000 copies. The license granted is again Royalty Free. [Read more]
