To those outside the media world all the license terms used to supply stock photography can get to be a little confusing! here's some help:
A license is the agreement that a photographer or agency provides and that the image buyer or user agrees to when they buy or download an image for use - even if the image is free you are usually bound by some kind of license agreement
Editorial Use: Permission to use in blogs, newspapers, magazines and other publications.
Commercial Use: Permission to use in marketing and advertising to promote a product or service.
Exclusive and Non-Exclusive: Exclusive use means that the one who purchases the license from you is the only one who can use the photo. Non-exclusive photo licenses can be purchased and used by anyone and usually cost less.
Creative Commons: Conditional usage of your work is allowed as long as it is in compliance with the stated restrictions. Attribution to credit the creator is sometimes required.
Royalty-Free: Others can buy a license and use the photo for an unlimited duration and unlimited number of times. This is the most common type of license purchased and on the cheaper end of the spectrum since these photos are usually non-exclusive.
Rights-Managed: ( One Time Rights ) A one-time license can be purchased for a limited time to use the photo with restrictions regarding distribution. Additional licenses must be purchases for additional use.
Rights Managed: ( First Time Rights ) typically give the licensee the right to publish the work for the first time in one edition of a publication
Right of Publicity: The subjects in your photos are entitled to certain rights when it comes to their inclusion in your photography, especially when it comes to commercial use. This is a separate concern from the copyright considerations above and you should seek a subject's explicit permission first in order to be safe.
