Smile! You’re on Flickr.

So Flickr and Getty have teamed up in a mutually beneficial way. Getty are going to look through Flickr for some quality imagery that they can sell. Flickr will take most of the money and run giggling into the bushes. Designers and Art Directors will get access to a wider selection of images. And some of the good Flickr users will get a little bit of cash back to help pay for film, new lenses and the divorce caused by their obsessive hobby. Seems like a win, win, win, win situation to me.

Unless you’re a professional photographer who’s already struggling to get business.

Read more about it in Flickr’s press release.
