Have you ever looked for free images to use on your blog or website and worried whether the picture you wanted to use in your blog post was free and clear of any copyright issues? Getty Images just took a huge step, making thousands and thousands of their photos free and legal for use on websites and blogs.
All you need to do is visit Getty Images and search their images available to embed. They may not be used for any commercial purpose, e.g. in advertising, promotions or merchandising. But are free and clear to embed for editorial purposes, meaning relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest.
So for example, if I wanted to write a post about how excited our 5 year old was (she was really excited!) that Frozen won Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Song, I can easily embed excellent photos from the Oscars like the following of Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell at the Oscars!
As our daughter would say, it’s “easy peasy”! Just Select the image you want to use in your blog or website from thousands of images available to embed. Click on the </> symbol beneath the image, and paste the HTML code that pops up into your website or blog.
