Getty Images Partners with WordPress

Well, as far as photography goes, this is going to shake things up! WordPress just announced embed support for Getty Images. There are restrictions of course (it’s Getty after all) but this puts pretty much every WordPress blogger on the planet on pretty darn near equal footing with the traditional news outlets. Sure, the best images won’t be available for embedding but now bloggers can legally get access to breaking news and other editorial interest stories. By that they mean news or “events of public interest.”

Before you start using this embed service, remember to read the terms and follow the rules. If you think that lone photographer you stole from was ticked off, you haven’t seen anything like what Getty will do if you steal from them.

That said, go, search, embed! Independent bloggers just got a powerful tool in their arsenal!
