Free Pictures!

Whee! According to, Getty Images is partnering with PicScout to make millions of pictures available for posting on blogs like this! Read the Press Release for details.

I always try to use pictures from free sites (like MorgueFile), but honestly, for many subjects the pickings are slim. So yes, I use pictures from websites and online archives, hoping that the fact that I fully credit the source will spare me from legal consequences. After all, it's just a blog. Really.

But I've used Getty Images for a paid gig and their collection is in-effing-credible. So I will be eagerly monitoring, which is currently in Beta, waiting for them to give me the enchanted entree to The Mystical Archive Palace. My tail is switching back and forth. . . .
