Getty Images : Flickr collection now available from www.gettyimages.com

Getty Images and Flickr, a Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) subsidiary and one of the world’s largest photo communities, announced the start of their very own Flickr picture collection. This enables Getty Images’ clients to license thousands of inspiring and unusual photos.

"We are thrilled to provide our customers with this ground-breaking collection," said Jonathan Klein, co-founder and chief executive officer of Getty Images. "We are impressed with the talent from the Flickr community, and are proud to once again lead our industry in this exciting new direction. We are really excited to see how our clients will react to the burgeoning collection.”

The experienced photography editors at Getty Images used their expertise in the copyright licensing of digital content, as well as their knowledge of their clients demands to select the chosen images. The collection has a majority of conceptual photos, such as scenes from everyday life and real, authentic themes, as well as regionally relevant contents.

Each month thousands of new images are added to the collection, constantly taking into account any further developments to the clients’ tastes. The Flickr collection photos are either offered as royalty free or rights managed.

Getty Images will also continually expand on the collection by inviting selected Flickr members to join in. Flickr members that decide to include their photos in the collection, will profit from Getty Images’ global coverage and distribution. They can also benefit from the company’s expertise and experience in the rights management of digital media. The Flickr collection can be viewed at : www.gettyimages.com/flickr
