...are you sure thats an embeded image? It looks like they paid for it.

Embeded images have the Getty logo on it, along with sharing buttons, like the below:

That's a good point - could be the blog writer doesn't understand the Getty terms of use and took a screenshot instead?

...nah, its attributed correctly: it just looks like a straight up licence purchase. If the money hasn't shown up in the OP's account it surely will in the next 30 days.

You go here http://www.google.com/​alerts (external link) and make a query and have the results mailed to yourself. For instance search for your name. Every time google indexes a page with your name, it will send you an email with the link to that page.

Thankfully I don't do photography for anything more than beer money, but it is slightly bothersome to think that at some point in history I would have been paid something reasonable for a photo to be used by a major news/editorial publishing company like TIME.

Here's the article:

http://time.com …ghanistan-troops-leaving/ (external link)

The most disturbing thing is that these new free "embedded" photos Getty hands out are crappily resized, pixelated, and too small for any useful viewing.

Honestly if TIME would have emailed me and said "hey getty will give us this crappy looking file for free one way or the other, will you just give us a good one for free?" .... I would have said yes so people don't see my name under a pixelated abstract smudge.


Here is the original photo:

Taken in Kandahar Afghanistan in the fall of 2010. Canon 5DmkII, 70-200 f4L IS

QUOTED IMAGE

A buddy had an image published in Newsweek about 5 years ago. Netted him a little over $1,500. Sorry you didn't get paid for it man.

I've had some famous musicians take my images, and crop out my tiny little watermark, and repost the image on instragram, fb, and twitter, and NOT even blink. no shout out. no love at all.

so I know how you're feeling.
one one hand, this is cool.
on the other hand, this is not cool.

...just to be clear: TIME did not use the embed feature for this image. So either they stole it and just happened to attribute it correctly, or they paid Getty for the usage and the OP will either get paid in due course or has already been paid. I'm pretty sure the latter happened, not the former.

I don't think that image is from the new Getty 'free embed' program; as someone else stated above, there is a stock format and watermark and hyperlink to the image on the Getty main site - yours looks legit licensed. You won't know until late next month when they collate last months sales. I shoot for Getty and Wireimage, and 90% of my sales are for online use and I pocket between $2-$5 per use online (sometimes more, usually less...).

I know everyone has this impression of "big, bad, Getty" but I've gotten paid for every image I've ever found that they licensed - they aren't selling images behind the photographers back. I hear people complain about the percentages as well, photogs only get 30% of royalties - but seriously, without Getty would you have been able to get a picture on Time.com? So it's 30% of a $10 license fee, or 100% of a $0 license (because I doubt the photo editors of Time are cold calling many individual photographers via their Wix website and offering to buy images that way...) Revel in it! I'm a music photographer, and the first time one of my pics was on Rollingstone.com I was ecstatic! "They like me! They really like me!!" ...and I made $3...but it was $3 I wasn't going to make without Getty...!

I get it. But at that point, what is the purpose. Spend your time shooting for real money, instead of putting in all that time to get the waivers and everything in order for big bad getty.

Yeah, volume is the game here. If your image is picked up 800 times, then you did pretty well. But if it was just picked up 3 times, then $9.00 seems kind of paltry. A wedding is a better deal than that.
