Getty Makes Photo Catalogue Available

Getty Images, a well-known professional photo catalogue, announced it is making its library of 35 million images available for noncommercial use. Its Embedded Viewer tool gives users the ability to search for and share Getty’s stock photos on websites, blogs, and social media. Getty officials say their new tool is designed to stop copyright-infringing uses. The embedded player creates an iframe for the image that includes its copyright information as well as a link to licensing information. The tool will also enable Getty to see how its images are used. Getty Images has a library of 150 million images. (PC Mag)(The Telegraph)(Getty Images)
