Frequently asked questions

What is freeimages.51microshop.com?

freeimages.51microshop.com is a free stock photo platform that is powered by Shopify. Our image library includes thousands of high-resolution, royalty-free images that were shot by our global community of photographers. We built FreeImages to provide designers, developers, bloggers and entrepreneurs with access to beautiful free stock photography. You can use our pictures for just about anything — your website, blog or online store, school projects, Instagram ads, facebook posts, desktop backgrounds, client work and more. All our photos are free for commercial use with no attribution required; you can read more about this on our  license page.

How do I download free photos?

When you hover over or click on an image, you will see "High Resolution" and "Low Resolution" download options. "Low Res" images are great for small web graphics, where file sizes need to be very compressed. "High Res" images are better for presentations, websites, online stores, and anywhere else where quality matters most.

Can I use these pictures for another online store platform?

Yes! We believe in making commerce better for everyone, so these stock photos are free to use on any online store platform or ecommerce 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.

Do I need to credit the site or photographer?

Our photographers appreciate getting credit for their work because it helps share their photography with more people, so we’d encourage you to do so whenever possible. You can give credit by linking back to the original photo page or the photographer's FreeImages profile (e.g. “Photo by Matthew Henry from FreeImages ”). We realize it's not always possible to provide attribution, so it is not mandatory under our image license.

Are these photos free for commercial use?

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, menu or catalog.
