The Getty sets 4600 images free


The images are gorgeous; I downloaded "Iris" and it's 28 MB so be sure you have enough disc space before you get carried away.

I started surfing the images and forced myself to stop - what a time sink! But the images are beautiful - there are a number of world known museums that only put up small images or use the "zoom" feature which does not allow the viewer to enlarge the whole image. Or wobbles all over your screen. Way to go, Getty - class act all the way.
