An editorial photo refers to an identifiable person (celebrity or public figure) or place (white house, empire state building) or event (royal wedding, olympics) that has a set licensing terms that determine how this type of photo can be used. Editorial images use requirements are different from a Royalty free image with the major difference being that an editorial image can not be used in promotional or advertising materials as the subject is a public person, event or place that has the right to determine how their image is used.
