One of the best things to come along in a long time is the result of a corporation taking stock of a situation and making things better. At least for us bloggers.
I wager one of the things you’ve done at least once is use a photo for which you really didn’t have the rights. I have. Sure, I’ve searched the “Commons” on Flickr, but sometimes they just don’t have the image I need.
But stock photo companies often do. And one of the largest, Getty, has just made over 35 million of their photos free. Really. All you have to do is use their embed code and you can legally and ethically use an image!! With all the proper attribution. Who knew?
Need an image of Lake Michigan in winter?
How about an audiobook?
Cate Blanchett at the Oscars?
OK… some of you cynics out there can probably tell me what the catch is. But as long as I can find images for my posts, I’m apt to keep doing it.
