Shutterbugs, if you're a Flickr user, you have a reason to be snap-happy. Getty Images, a leading stock photo agency, teamed up with Yahoo this week so that it can buy photos from Flickr's 2 billion picture database. Don't go breaking out the champagne just yet, though. Since Getty will be handpicking the photos personally, users will have to wait to be contacted to discuss contributor contracts. If chosen, the Flickr image will have a special link to the Getty page. And while price has not been specified, they will likely be commensurate with current Getty rates.
