Thank you, Getty Images, from A Humble Blogger
I’ve been blogging for a long time now. Not consistently, because…I’m like that. Ask my family.
One of the hardest things to do is find a picture to go with a blog. I am not a photographer. Ask my family.
I’ve used Bigstock and Dreamstime, but sometimes I wonder if it makes sense to buy random photos for blogs. For book covers, ads, sure. But just to accompany my blog?
Now, I don’t have to, thanks to Getty Images.
If you want to find the free embeddable pictures, scroll all the way down to the bottom, under Services, and click on Embed. You’ll get taken right to the images that are available for embedding.
What I like most about this Embed feature is that it does all the work for me, and the photo gets the proper attribution. As someone who creates for a living, I get the importance of proper attribution, and ease of use.
Doesn’t this picture say it all? The cat, looking at the fish, is much like the blogger, looking at the photo on an image site, and figuring out the logistics necessary to get said photo/fish.
