Why Getty Is A Joke To Photographers

If you are seriously considering licensing your photo through Getty Images, this story may push you over the edge into the "DON'T" category. Their rates are among the lowest, and their exclusive contract means you cannot sell the same image through any other medium.

Here is another reason to shun them like a plague victim. They signed a licensing agreement with Google that includes a pool of 5,000 stock images. These images will be available for unlimited use to be imbedded into anything created in Google Docs.

And how much do you the original artist get out of the deal for unlimited use of your images by potentially millions of people?
