The Getty Images website, the home of over a hundred years of photography, is now offering the ability to embed images at no cost.  The process is as simple as embedding a youtube video into a website.

Most web content producers have learned that finding images that can be used legally on a website, is not easy, or cheap. However, some don’t care and just use Google Images for whatever they need, without realizing that using those images creates a copyright violation.

This ‘no cost embed’ news from Getty Images, can help to avoid these copyright issues.

As you can see from the image below, which was embedded from the Getty site, they post a notification, and a link, to where you actually found the image.  The photographer also receives credit for the image.  A small price to pay, to avoid breaking the law or licensing the content.

This is an interesting development, and it may be one that will spread to other image providers.
