Use Getty Images’ free embed tool for culturally authentic imagery?

  1. Getty Images is trying a new approach for making some money of its widely pirated imagery online: a  tool you can use to embed images from their database on your website
  2. Pros:
    1. Copyright permissible!
    2. Preserves through link to Getty Images full background metadata of image.
    3. Relatively sophisticated image database browsing tool – might be useful less for teachers directly, but for web quests that send students to learn by exploration.image
    4. Cons:
      1. With the image embedder, you are enabling advertisements and user tracking  on your page. Study the licensing agreements.
      2. Seems to me that Google Images’ scope and convenience will be impossible to beat.
