Ed Endicott Posted August 27, 2014 Share Posted August 27, 2014 It's nice to see the excitement about the demand for images. http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/08/27/giving-away-photos-to-make-a-profit/?_php=true&_type=blogs&smid=tw-share&_r=0 ...but even he explains all they're getting out of it is views. How does a photographer pay for a home or food with just views? Start-up has been spectacular. We get about 5 million embed views a day. Basically, 99 percent of the traffic on GettyImages.com will never buy a picture. On the one hand, it is a horrible statistic, and on the other hand it’s a fabulous statistic, because it shows that people are picture-crazy.
