Flickr Inks Deal with Getty Images

A new deal between photo-sharing site Flickr and major photo syndicator Getty Images could do a lot for the pockets for Flickr users.

Under the deal, the Getty Images site will have a page for Flickr users. Those photos will be available for sale to publications, and the money will go to the Flickr user.

Getty will select the Flickr users, but expects to have several thousand images available over the coming months.
Flickr general manager Kakul Srivastava said:

"This partnership is testimony to the Flickr community of photographers who have influenced the aesthetics of photography with authentic, creative and cutting-edge images which will now be available to Getty Images’ customers around the world."
