    Getty Images Race To The Bottom

    http://www.photobizcoach.com/2014/03...s-race-bottom/

    Imagine the exposure you will get for free images ??????

    Recently Getty Images announced the availability of over 3 Million images for free to anyone who wants them. I had to stop and pause. Generally speaking I have no issue to voice my opinion, but in this case I had a feeling that there was more to it. Something didn’t add up. I wondered WHY would an image business give away images for free? It just didn’t make sense.

    Constructive Critique of my work is highly valued so have at it !

    There ought to be a recall on all photo editing software to remove the vignette function.

    Interesting read... lots of talk about boycotting Getty, but one would have to think with there huge inventory of images already, the horse has already bolted....
