De un sfert de ora caut un titlu acestui post. E un moment de rascruce in media si cu siguranta un moment in care multi vor sari in sus a dezaprobare.
Getty Images and Time Inc. are throwing the switch on LIFE.com, a new site that aims to dazzle visitors with the vast digital photo archives of both companies.
The site, targeted at consumers, is launching March 31 with 7 million professional images presented in eye-catching galleries.
The site’s revenue will come from advertising (its first sponsor is Rolex) and print-on-demand services such as photo books. Initial printing vendors include HP, Xerox and Kodak.
LIFE.com encourages free sharing of photos for ?personal, non-commercial use,? such as e-mails, blogs and social networking sites. Some photos will offer a link for professional licensing that will direct potential customers to Gettyimages.com.
Personal nu judec initiativa lor fiindca nu sunt fotograf profesionist dar sunt sigur ca tendinta de a oferi “free content” este in crestere si vor apare tot mai multi care ofera in speranta incasarilor din advertising. O reactie interesanta la Vincent Laforet.
