This is a big one friends! It's oh-so-important to give your customer a cohesive experience. If "your social media is your handshake then your website is your resume" and those visuals need to be carried across.

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.
As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!
Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!
By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.
It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.
Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited! This is not meant to scare you.
