Stock Photography

What can I use the stock photos and mock-ups for?

Pretty much all your online marketing needs! Social media, emailers, product showcasing, shop thumbnails, blog headers, website design and lead pages are some of the uses, but the list goes on!

If you’re unsure whether you can use stock photography for a specific project, just get in touch and I can let you know. And for specific usage agreement terms, be sure to check out the terms and conditions.

What can I do with them?

You can customise them pretty much anyway you like! Crop them, quote over them, insert your designs and/or branding, stick a shop update or message over them, fade them, apply your fave Instagram filter or PS preset, overlay it with one of your brand colours – or just leave them exactly as they are! The choice is yours. Just don’t claim they’re yours, or sell them on as stock in any way. For specific usage agreement terms, be sure to check out the terms and conditions.

Can I use them in products I intend to giveaway or sell?

Afraid not! Any stock image or mock-up purchased can only be used for marketing and not for re-sell – whether you’re charging or giving away for free! You can check out the full terms and conditions for more details or just get in touch for further clarification.

Who owns the copyright?

That would be me!

Copyright and ownership of all stock photography, mock-ups and textures belongs to myself, Charlie, owner of Tide & Tree.

Do I need to be a designer to use the stock photos and mock-ups?

No not at all! The stock photo’s themselves can be used as they are right away, however if you like you can customise them using your preferred photo-editing software.

The mock-ups are layered PSD files with Smart Object layers, created in Adobe Photoshop and are designed to be really easy to use; however some basic PS knowledge is preferable to get the best out of them. Fear not though all mock-ups come with PDF instructions to guide you through and a flattened JPEG version.

Whilst technical help isn’t something I exclusively offer, I’ll never leave you high & dry – bob me a message if you’re having trouble and I’ll do my best to help you 🙂

What shall I do if I'm having technical trouble with my purchase?

Technical issues are rare, but fear not! Shoot me an email and we’ll get it sorted!

What if my question isn't answered here?
