Some think this isn't great for a variety of reasons, including that Getty could swap the image if they wanted to at any time and also because if their site is down your image becomes a broken link.
But for me, it's great news I don't host the image. Because for a while now I have been unable to upload photos to my blog. I have tried a lot of things to try and solve the problem, but no luck.
So Getty, I welcome your embedded images so my posts can have pictures again!
And not just any photos, awesome pictures like this one with both Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Amy Poehler.
I don't know about you, but I think the Getty image search may be my new favorite time suck on the Internet. Let's see who I can find with Lena Dunham...
P.S. Just in case you're wondering, not compensated in any way for writing this ode to Getty. Just digging the free photo use.
