Lazy-minting is when an NFT is available off-chain once created and only gets minted once a sale takes place. This means that the artist doesn't have to pay any upfront gas fees to mint their NFTs.

If anyone can download the art file, why would I buy the NFT?

Yes, anyone can download and view the image for free (just like the Monalisa painting), but they don't own it, and they can't gain any value from it without the ownership of the NFT.
