Embedding Getty Images on your WordPress blog

Getty Images has a vast array of images and photographs. The example above is an embedded image from Getty. Back in March 2014, Getty implemented the embed feature that allows you to use images from their collection on your blog for non-commercial purposes. You may think that if you have a website that links to a business you cannot therefore use the images, but my interpretation of the terms (extracted below but do check the full terms to be sure) is that if you have editorial articles on your business blog (relating to news or factual articles) then that is not classed as using the images commercially.

Instructions on how to grab the embed code from images on the Getty site are here: http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/resources/embed

Extract from Terms of Use:

Where enabled, you may embed Getty Images Content on a website, blog or social media platform using the embedded viewer (the “Embedded Viewer”). Not all Getty Images Content will be available for embedded use, and availability may change without notice. Getty Images reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove Getty Images Content from the Embedded Viewer. Upon request, you agree to take prompt action to stop using the Embedded Viewer and/or Getty Images Content. You may only use embedded Getty Images Content for editorial purposes (meaning relating to events that are newsworthy or of public interest). Embedded Getty Images Content may not be used: (a) for any commercial purpose (for example, in advertising, promotions or merchandising) or to suggest endorsement or sponsorship; (b) in violation of any stated restriction; (c) in a defamatory, pornographic or otherwise unlawful manner; or (d) outside of the context of the Embedded Viewer.
