What does Royalty-Free mean?
It isn´t free stuff. When you buy a Royalty Free or RF license you have the right to use copyrighted material without the need to pay royalties or other fees for each use. Many license types may be available, depending on certain features: territory of application (i.e. worldwide), exclusive or non-exclusive, time period of use, for an end product or resale, per volume sold, etc.
Here you have some examples: PhotoDune, iStockPhoto, ShutterStock (Standard License vs. Enhanced License), Fotolia, Dreamstime, Pond5, DepositPhotos
Editorial use only: What does it mean?
Before you buy an image you have to review the available licenses carefully.
Editorial images are images that have not been released for commercial use. The photographer does not provide any needed additional releases with those images, i.e. a photo of a building for which the photographer could not obtain a property release or a photo with people without a model release because they have not given permission for any commercial use of that picture. An image should also be considered as editorial if names, trademarks, logos, uniforms, registered or copyrighted designs or works of art are depicted in it but you don't have all necessary rights, consents or permissions as may be required for reproduction of that image.
News and celebrity images, are not cleared for commercial use so they have to be considered as editorial.
Non-editorial or commercial or creative images can be used for almost any promotional or advertising purposes. On the other hand unreleased editorial images are intended to be used in a magazine article, documentary or blog post for illustrative purposes or to provide context, but you cannot use the image to sell anything, editorial imagery is for non-commercial, non-promotional use only.
