PicApps gives bloggers access to licensed photographs for free


Check out this awesome pic of Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick. Usually bloggers wouldn’t be able to use such high quality images beause of licensing issues, but new service PicApp changes that. PicApp has worked out licensing with premium image providers like Corbis, Getty Images, etc to give bloggers access to these images for free. Well, it’s not totally free. The image has a link back to PicApp and is supposed to display a little advertisement from the license holders.

There’s even a plugin for WordPress blogs, that includes a PicApp image browser directly within the New Post screen. Here’s a video of how it works:

The service itself works great, although there seems to be a few bugs with the plugin. Regardless, I’m going to be checking whenever I need images for my blog from now on.
