Rad Getty Images ad of the day: It’s not all cheesy illustrations of Facebook in the Getty database. Ad firm Almap BBDO had image researchers look through thousands of Getty Images files to find the right 873 that told a consistent story in a single minute. The flow of the images is perfect. Pretty amazing. (note: ad is safe for work, but there’s a little sexy time at the beginning)
One of the great frustrations with watermarks on copyrighted images is that they take away from the images themselves and there’s no way to know the original source. Here’s Getty Images’ attempt to change all that, by making the watermarks more graceful and putting a URL right on the image. What do you guys think?
