Global leader in stock imagery Getty Images recently announced that 35 million photos will now be available for free.
Brian Hughes article; Getty’s Free Images for bootstrapped publishers, keep in mind two important stipulations the company has outlined:-
Noncommercial Use – Getty made it crystal clear that the use of free embedded code is not to extend to entities using the images for a commercial purpose. So, Getty’s commercial clients, like the New York Times and other large media outlets, are not permitted to use embedded code.
Editorial Purposes – Independent bloggers and social media publishers are allowed to use free content for editorial purposes only. For those wanting to beef up their web presence with a ton of Getty’s images, embedded images are a no-no. Instead, the company encourages the use of free images to promote “newsworthy” content.
