Many Getty photos embeddable free of charge

Noam Cohen at The New York Times

In a move that promises to increase the use of photography across the Internet, the Getty Images photo agency announced that it would allow noncommercial websites and social media users to publish the agency’s images at no cost using an “embedding” tool.

The catch is that the photos have to be embedded a la youtube (see hungry kitty, above), which means they can just take them down if they want to, or insert advertising. Out the can, Getty's embeds have fixed widths, but it's clean iframe markup, easily tailored. Use is noncommercial only, but they're OK with ad-supported editorial use.
