Graphic designers, advertisers, print and online publishing medias depend heavily on Getty Images for stock photos. We bloggers also sometimes required photos relevant to our articles as images can attract the readers to stay on the site. Earlier, it was not possible to use Getty Images free on blogs as they are licensed. Now you can select from the Getty’s 35 millions of photos to post on your blog for noncommercial use that for absolutely free.
Getty recently introduced an embed tool that you can use to embed Getty’s professional quality photos on your blog for free. That means you can search and find suitable photos for your blog posts without watermark on Getty. But bear in mind that the use should be for non commercial purpose only.

Why Getty turned to such a move? It’s because of the pirated use of their stock photos. Lots of blogs already using Getty Images without attribution and stripped off their meta data. To thwart this, Getty brings the new sharing option. So the benefit, they get back link to the source and the photos are serving from their server.
