Now Use Free Getty Images on Your Blog

The largest site for stock photos – Getty Images has opened up its vast photo resources to all. it will now allow you to embed images on your blog or website for no cost. Yes – for no cost.

Images are powerful and can be a great way to communicate and share. For bloggers this is a boon, now you can use any of millions of images of Getty on your blog, all you need to do is follow their guidelines.

How to Embed images on your blog:

WordPress has made this very simple, its been working with Getty Images to ensure that wordpress users find this feature easy to use.

1) To embed an image grab the image code for the image you want to use. This can be done by hovering over the image and clicking the embed icon

2) Copy the embed code on your wordpress blog post (this is the post you want the image to appear)

3) Once you copy the embed copy click on draft or publish from your wordpress dashboard, the selected image will appear on the blog.

4) The Embedded images will include photographer attribution and, when clicked, will link back to www.gettyimages.com – a legal way to protect copyrights of the photographer and give credit for the same.

Opening up the platform is a surprise to competitors who charge for paid stock images, I wonder how the industry would react to this move ? As a blogger I am going to take full advantage of the free images.

What do you think about this move ?

    This is a very awesome development for WordPress blogger.

    Isn’t it wonderful? There is no fear of copyright infringement. And since the embed code is provided by the image source, no question on how attribution should be made.

    Kudos to Getty.

    ZK, thanks for sharing
