Stock photos can be used for almost anything. The usual set of circumstances rule for royalty-free images is unlimited Web use, limited print use and no distribution rights. Most people use them for the blog, sales pages and other Internet marketing purposes.

Let’s take a look at what 15 percent means. For easy math, let’s take a look at what 10 percent means. There are people who spend over $500 per month on stock imagery. 10 percent of that is $50, so 15 percent of that is $75. It may not seem like much, but it is a significant savings. If you couple that with 35 free images, you’re saving over $100 for nothing more than becoming their customer.

Unlimited Web use means you can download it an unlimited amount of times without paying for it again and again. The standard license is limited. If you need to step outside the bounds of the standard license, an extended license is available.

Is the discount worth it to you? That depends – is $100 worth it to you? For many people, this is a no-brainer.
