And I found in the license agreementhttps://depositphotos.com/license.html：
If the File is used to create an item NEITHER for Resale NOR for Free Distribution, the Standard License is always appropriate.
If the File is used to create an item for Resale or for Free Distribution:
if the File plays a minor role in the item, the Standard License is appropriate;
if the File plays a major role in the item, the Extended License is appropriate.
Item for Free Distribution: An item that will be distributed to a wide audience without raising any commercial revenue (e.g., free web templates, postcards, flyers, etc.).
The role a File plays in an item is determined by the value the File adds to the item and how much the File influences a customer’s decision to choose this particular item among similar items.
A major role: A File is considered to play a major role in an item if the File is a primary, defining, or important part of the item, increases the intrinsic value of the item, or influences a customer’s preference for this particular item.
A minor role: A File is considered to play a minor role in an item if the File is an incidental part of the item, does not add significant value to the item and does not influence a customer’s preference for this item.
And I also found similar terms on another websitehttps://us.fotolia.com/Info/Agreements/StandardLicense:
And I have some questions regarding the license terms:You may only distribute the Work as incorporated onto an item of merchandise if (i) the Work has been modified to the extent that the modification is not substantially similar to the original Work and can qualify as an original work of authorship or (ii) the primary value of the item of merchandise does not lie with the Work itself. For clarification, producing an unmodified Work on a poster is not permitted as the primary value would lie in the Work itself.
1. As for the term"distribution" or "distribute", what is the exact meaning? If I upload some e-posters on my website and allow others to download themselves in the legal disclaimer of my website, is it a kind of "distribution"? Or only sending the images out via email or other ways to others can be considered "distribution"?
2. How can I measure the "major role" or "primary value"? For example, if I add some texts and features onto an image, like this, can the image be considered "major role" or "primary value"?

I have contacted the websites with my question. But they cannot give me a clear answer and ... even when I asked the same question to different representatives from the same website, they give me completely different answers So I'm seeking your help...
