    that term in itself is pretty broad. but what it basically means is that stock photo's are photo's taken by people that are available for use by other people.
    I say that the term is pretty broad because sometimes they charge you or they want you to credit them if you use their photographs.

    cheers

    stock photos are photographs that can be used or manipulated.

    free stock photos are stock photos which can be used free of charge. normally stock photos have to be purchased but without exclusive ownership, meaning 5 people can pay the same price to buy the same photo to use.

    It usually means an image can be bought for a one-time charge and used as many times as need be for both personal and commercial use. Most major stock photo agencies have their own set of licensing restrictions though for free stock photographs.
