German term or phrase: freigestellte Motive
From a corporate design manual:

Die Anzeigen können mit oder ohne Bilder gestaltet werden. Folgende Bilddarstellungen sind nicht zulässig: freigestellte Motive, die nicht auf einem Fond platziert sind. Verläufe und abgesoftete Hintergrundbilder sowie Bildcollagen, die durch Ineinanderkopieren mehrerer Motive erzeugt werden...

What's the correct term here? Thanks in advance.
