Free Images: Getty Gets It

Notice something different? Yep, it’s the embed system that’s part of the Getty image. Starting today, most Getty images are now available for non-commercial use and sharing this way. Not sure if it will actually result in Getty making more money (and more photogs get paid), but it’s definitely thinking in the right direction, rather than the usual way creative content owners respond.

Note: There’s still some problems with Getty’s tech. Just fooling around a bit with the iframe height settings allow you to crop off the embed caption. And it doesn’t look like the images can be made responsive.
