Istockphoto license

hi,
is that ok if i purchase image from istockphoto using standard license, edit the image and put some text as my slogan to my website? please advise . still confusing what is different extended with standard license.

Last I looked at heir license, they prohibited use of any image as part of a logo. I suggest you email them and have them confirm one way or the other.

You don’t want to be using stock photography as part of your logo:

But it is fine to throw some text or whatever across it if you are just using it on your site-- I edit the crap out of stock photos every day. I just don’t use them as part of a logo or something that I might want to reuse in another context such as a billboard or a company polo shirt.
