To learn how to add the royalty free images, I started with a chat session on the Getty images site:
Welcome! You are now chatting with Kevin.
Kevin: Hello! How can I help you today?
Janie: Good morning! I wanted information about using the royalty free (RF) embedded images on your site.
Kevin: If you are not using the image for marketing, advertising or promotion of a business you can take advantage of the embed feature.
Janie: So that means you do not pay for use, correct?
Janie: Do you need an account if you embed?
Kevin: You do need to register to use the embed feature.
Janie: Okay. Step one register and fill in the account info.
Kevin: If it is just a blog. Just get it as close as possible for account info.
Janie: Thank you. Do you need to do anything with the RF photo other than embed the code.
Kevin: Just copy and paste.
Janie: Perfect. I can do that! Thank you, Kevin for taking the time to answer my questions.
Kevin: Thank you for chatting today. We value your feedback.
One page registration
This is what the registration page looks like. I left my info on the second part of the registration. You can see my answers. The phone number I listed is a Google voice number that is free and keeps my personal cell number private.
Use the drop down menu under Creative Images to search for royalty free images. Click on Royalty-free.
Under search check the royalty free box, photography and illustration.
Type in the subject you are looking for in the search box.
I searched for hats. Look for this symbol. Click on the embed symbol, then copy and paste the code into your blog post.
Place your cursor in the spot you want the picture on your blog post. Paste the embed code of the photo in the HTML section of your blog draft and return to compose mode. Enjoy adding pictures to your blog posts!
