What does royalty-free mean?
In the field of images, "Royalty free" is a type of license in which a person or organization pays a one-time royalty, being able to use the image for their projects for commercial or non-commercial purposes. Likewise, the initial owner of the image can license the same royalty-free image on an unlimited, non-exclusive basis.
Why does FreeImages have royalty-free images?
This allows us to sustain this project, so you can download other millions of images for free.
