    So if Getty pulls an embeddable image from the program, what happens on your blog? Does an empty placeholder appear instead of the image? Or an ad for Getty or one of its clients?

    If you’re suggesting that bloggers should keep a database so that they would constantly need to go back and manually pull out images whenever Getty decides they’ve changed their mind, that would be a major dealbreaker for me right there.

    The advertising possibility further seals this coffin. I use a variety of stock image options, all of them significantly cheaper than Getty. I’d rather pay a buck or so for an image that I know I can use without worrying about these problems than use something for free that I then have to constantly supervise after the fact.

    This has been confusing to me, so thanks for addressing it and giving the lo-down! It is stressful when you have to worry about whether you’re doing it right or not. I think I prefer a method with no confusion or grey area. I’ll definitely have to look into this further!
