Yes, I admit it: I embed with Getty

After years of having its licensed images show up illegally in thousands of boring presentations, Getty Images has tried a new tact to encourage heavier use of and credit and payment for their library of high quality and high resolution images.

Users can now embed many of Getty’s images for free. If any of the licensed images have the following  embed icon:

embed_icon

Search_-_Getty_Images___technology

Once you click on the embed icon, you simply copy and paste the code and paste into your WordPress blog, web site, or any other location that allows embedding.

The caveat here is that, if Getty ever deletes the image, or if the link changes, the embedded file will no longer work. I think Getty Images might suggest that you consider purchasing these images to avoid this problem.
