Most pictures on the internet come with copyrights, this means you can't just use these images without permission from the owner. On a photo stock website it is possible to buy the images and the right to use them in order to create a splashback with them. At Pimp Your Kitchen we recommend iStock, Shutterstock and AdobeStock, an image only costs 1 credit (€ 9.68) to 3 credits (€ 29.04).
Should i buy these images from the start? Of every stock photo there is a downloadable 'example image', often with a watermark in it. You can use this free example picture to design a splashback in our product configurator. Only when you're completely satisfied, we will buy your preferred stock photo for you! This gets rid of the watermark and makes your photo chosen photo ready to use.
Is a stock photo always suitable to use? Our guideline states a minimal resolution of3350 pixels per 100 cm, so if your wall panel is to be 300 cm wide, you'll need an image of around 10.000 pixels. The stock photo website will always state the resolution for each image. If you still have doubts after checking this, you can always e-mail us. We'll check the image for you.
Please note! Sometimes the stock photos can only be used for editoral articals. We use the pictures creatively. This means those pictures cannot be used by us. This is always stated on the stock photo website and should be checked before continuation of the process.
Silva and her partner chose to use an image of Shutterstock, with these fish we were able to design a nice kitchen splashback, just for them.
"Dear Pimp Your Kitchen, the splashback was delivered last friday. I wasn't home for the weekend but my boyfriend installed it while I was gone. When I came home on sunday there was a nice suprise waiting for me! We are verry happy with the result, it looks so pretty! Amazing quality, sharp lines and beautiful material. Thanks a lot for the beautiful design, the help and the amazing result. Warm Greetings, Sylvia"
