Like A Boss...Lady

Getty Images launched the “Lean In Collection” Monday in partnership with LeanIn.org, featuring more than in contemporary work and life. Lean In and Getty Images partner to create a collection of positive, power images of women. “The most important thing for us is that you felt like the woman had agency, not like the image was happening to her, but she was the protagonist of her own story — they all should feel like the hero of their image," says Pam Grossman director of visual trends at Getty Images.

Eeek!

Tips for getting ahead in the increasingly competitive low cost small laptop market: When you go to Getty Images, grab some stock photography of smiling kids in a classroom and photoshop in your product, you better make sure your competitor hasn't used the exact same image.

Blame, bane or the way of the future? Micropayment stock photography

Snapping your way to riches, $0.30 at a time. Some say micropayment sites are the bane of photography--that micropayment stock photo sites prey on the gullible and will single handedly destroy professional photography as we know it. Others say it's more money than you would make than if you just let the photos sit around on your computer, that it's just the way it is, it's the way it's gonna be and you may as well hop on board.

Download stock photos without paying, don't go to jail.

Download stock photos without paying, don't go to jail. Istockphotos.com seems to be offering free stock photography submitted by artists and photographers. And it's endorsed by Zeldman, even. But...what's to keep people from uploading Eyewire images and calling them their own, thereby illegally distributing them to thousands of people who'll use them on websites, magazines, etc. Istockphotos is legally covered, but what about the designer?
