    13. 13. Sell Photography: Getty Images<br />How is Getty Images working with Flickr members?<br />Getty Images has an experienced team of editors who are scouring the Flickrverse for public photographs they feel would complement The Flickr Collection on Getty Images. Once the editors find photos they feel are suitable or a licensing request is made for one of the images, they will be contacting the photographer who published it via FlickrMail. <br />If you receive an invitation, congratulations! The note will detail photos that Getty Images editors feel would do well as part of the collection, and it’s up to you to decide whether to proceed with some or all of the images they’re interested in. That will mean signing up as a Getty Images Contributor, and submitting your photos for a comprehensive review (to make sure the file’s large enough, you have model releases – stuff like that).<br />From<br />
