Launched in 2012, Stockfreeimages is a Dreamstime project meant to feature content donated by Dreamstime contributors for free download. Dreamstime contributors are responsible for the donation and entitle Dreamstime and thus Stockfreeimages to make the image available to Stockfreeimages' registered customers, accompanied by the regular Royalty Free license. 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. The maximum number of copies for printed materials is 500,000 copies and the license granted is Royalty Free. The license granted is again Royalty Free. Read more

All images downloaded that are used online should be accompanied by a visible credit line in HTML format, whenever the workspace permits it (articles, blogs, etc). The credit line is optional but highly recommended for images downloaded using any of our subscription plans. The copyright notice and author/agency credit must be added next to each image used within editorial purposes. The credit line format, HTML format included, is provided on the download page. Suggestive examples: "© Photographer name / StockFreeImages.com", "© Username / StockFreeImages.com", "Photo courtesy of StockFreeImages.com".

In April 2024, the site had 1,380,060 registered members and around 4,066,611 free images from 65,452 photographers.
