@_lindsaycraig · Burst - stock photos for entrepreneurs
We just launched Burst, a new free stock photo site with over 1000 stunning free images. They're available under the Creative Commons Zero license so you're free to use and edit them as you see fit. We built Burst to help entrepreneurs make better products, websites, and marketing campaigns. Most of the pictures are original photos that were taken in-house and are themed around trending business niches — everything from DIY beard oil to Aliexpress LED sneakers. Of course, there are more general photographs as well; you can find free images of food, sunsets, mountains and more. As far as I know, we're the first site to give away a massive library of free product photos. We'll add new photos every week, so please let us know if you have specific requests (burst@shopify.com). If you're looking for a 'Burst' of inspiration 😉, we've also created a bunch of in-depth case studies that have all the info you need to start your own business in nine different niches. Each case study comes with a free set of high-res photos that you can use on your social media accounts, website, marketing materials and beyond. It's a super early version of the site but we'd love to have your feedback. Also, if you're interested in having your photos featured, please reach out!

What is the difference between Burst and the other stock sites?

@dredurr Burst is a free stock photo site for entrepreneurs. We're giving away all the photos you need to run a business in a bunch of trending niches: product photography and images that were shot for Facebook ads, catalogs, ecommerce websites etc. 9 of these business collections even come with in-depth case studies: https://burst.shopify.com/busine... We'll be adding 11 more soon. Of course, we have lots of other more general images of food, lanscapes etc., as we're still catering to all the designers, developers and content creators out there. Also, all our images are completely free, which makes us different from paid sites like iStock or Shutterstock.

@_lindsaycraig Thank you! That was a very detailed response. I ❤ it

@_lindsaycraig @dredurr Incredibly well done. And, me being me, I gravitated to "Business Ideas" instantly. Lots of mutually beneficial overlap with something I'm organizing. Here's to the future!!
