license, which means you’re welcome to use the photos for any purpose.

Can I edit the photos?
Yes, you’re welcome to add text and filters, or otherwise edit the
stock photos as you see fit. If you don’t have Photoshop, there are lots of
free or low cost online graphics editors
that you can use instead. You’re welcome to add your logo or brand
and make the photos your own.
Can I use these pictures on another ecommerce platform?
Sure! We believe in making commerce better for everyone, so these stock
photos are free to use on any platform or marketplace. Although they
were specifically created and curated with Shopify stores in mind, it’s
really up to you how you want to use them.
Why don’t you have photos of [___]?
This is a brand new platform, and we’re constantly working on expanding
our photo library. If you can’t find a particular photo in our Popular
Collections, or would like to suggest a Business Idea image set, please
feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I need to credit the site or photographer?
Under the Creative Commons Zero license, you aren’t required to credit
the photographer or Burst. However, we’d encourage you to provide credit
whenever possible, in the form of a link to the original photo page
(e.g. “Photo by Matt Wiebe”).
What are the ‘Business Idea’ pages?
“Business Ideas” are free photo collections and case studies that revolve around
trending ecommerce niches. They’re designed to help you identify popular
products that are relatively easy to create from scratch or dropship
using a platform like AliExpress. The free photo sets include both the product
shots and lifestyle images, so that you have all the stock images you need to
create a professional brand for free. These collections are meant to be
a starting point for a new business; we encourage you to add more
products and take your own photos as you grow your online brand.
Can I use these photos for commercial purposes?
Yes! In fact, we’d highly encourage it, as many of our collections were
created with entrepreneurs in mind. You can use these free photos on your
online store, product packaging, or anywhere else you’d like. You can
even use these pics to create t-shirts, mugs, or other products.
Can I use these photographs for offline marketing campaigns?
Of course. We’d be honored to have you feature our free stock photos on
a billboard, flyer or catalog.
What kind of photos are you looking for?
We’re looking for high-resolution, professional images that can be used
by designers, developers, bloggers and entrepreneurs. We’re interested
in a wide range of subject matter: pictures of people and animals,
nature photos, textured shots, background images and more. If you think it’s a
compelling photograph, please send it our way.
