Springer has decided to make the SpringerImages App free.

Individuals may purchase access to these image collections. Visit springerimages.com/mobile for more information
ImageBank consists of freely available images contributed by academics, researchers, Learned Societies, industry and individuals with rights cleared for educational purposes.
Users are able to search for images based on keywords or browse within a wide range of bioscience subject areas.
Images are then ‘downloadable’ along with informative descriptive text provided by the contributor.
All images undergo a validation process by Centre for Bioscience staff with good subject knowledge.
ImageBank also offers reviews of, and links to existing bioscience image databases.
SpringerImages, a picture database that covers images across all scientific subject areas, now includes over two million images that info pros and researchers can use in their non-commercial work.
The database contains a growing collection of high quality scientific images, tables, charts and graphs from Images.MD, as well as images from Springer journals and books, including Open Access content.
It allows users to search fast, broadly and accurately through captions and keywords (both author-provided and user-generated). It also provides bibliographic information for the sources, as well as one-click access to the full text.
Images obtained from SpringerImages can be used for almost all non-commercial purposes, including integration into presentations and PDF documents. The platform enables the user to store image sets and saved searches. Image sets can be exported to PDF or PowerPoint (including their bibliographic data) with one click.Recently, SpringerImages implemented Copyright Clearance Center’s point of content licensing tool called Rightslink for direct licensing needs.
Despite a very limited content, the concept of this engine is really promising:
