Getty Images now Available for Use Online

March 11, 2014

Getty images has updated its copyright and use policy. Getty Images will now allow individuals to legally and freely use selected images on websites, blogs and social media as long as the user embeds the image with the code provided by the Getty website. This greatly expands the availability of free quality images available legally to the general public to use on various online media platforms.

Libraries should , however, be aware of the fine print to determine if they wish to use these images on official library websites and social media platforms. In exchange for using the embedded viewer, the terms of service state that “Getty Images (or third parties acting on its behalf) may collect data related to use of the Embedded Viewer and embedded Getty Images Content, and reserves the right to place advertisements in the Embedded Viewer or otherwise monetize its use without any compensation to you.”
