I noticed some of the images on my site are missing since I migrated everything from my old host. My apologies, I'm working on getting that fixed soon!

What is a royalty-free image?

Great question! And if you are new to royalty-free images, welcome! Royalty-free images are photos, illustrations, or vectors that artists sell on microstock sites. The copyright of each image is owned by the artist and by purchasing a royalty-free usage license you as the buyer agree to certain terms of usage. The exacts of how you can use the images will depend on the details of the license you purchase. RF images and photos can be used on anything from a personal blog to a national ad campaign. It's an amazing way for clients big and small to get reasonably priced art and photos to make their projects stand out.

Wikipedia also has some great info if you're new to royalty-free microstock:
