    What we are seeing is the downside of digital. Such is the ease with which pictures can be whizzed here there and everywhere, that TV news programmes, magazines and newspapers, are jumping on the "pictures for free bandwagon". Issues such as quality concern fewer and fewer editors, as "dumbed down images" from viewers/readers become the norm.

    Actually getting paid for your efforts, is fast being designated to the "old technology bin" and to increasing numbers of pros and ex-pros, the game is becoming "no longer worth the candle".

    Another nail in the coffin for photographers struggling to make a living. Have the photographers been asked if they wish to give away their pictures. In any case one would suggest what Getty has done is illegal or at least unethical. Photographers should remove their pictures from Getty and not provide them with any images. Getty depends on your images, without you they cannot exist.
