Today Flickr announced a limited partnership with Getty to create a Flickr Stock Collection.Â In short you need to be discovered by Getty photo editors and additional details are forthcoming.
The great folks at Getty Images and Flickr are joining forces to create a collection of royalty free, rights ready and rights managed photographs. This announcement is just the first step and thereâ€™s a lot to do before we launch. Weâ€™ve created a FAQ to address what we think will be the initial questions.
The FAQ is quite barebones at the moment. You make the call if this is a good thing or bad thing for Flickr photographers. For now I withhold judgment as to how this can be interpreted for the state of affairs at Getty.
