Need legal photos for use on your blog?

You’re in luck.

Getty Images, one of the world’s largest stock photo agencies, announced that it would make images available for free use on blogs and social media services. You’ll need to use Getty’s embed feature (shown above) to get the images to display on your site, and the images can only be used for noncommercial purposes.

Details on the new service and access to the library are on Getty’s site here.

This is no doubt a boon to bloggers; not sure how it will affect the photographers who make the pictures.
