On December 16, 2004 The Hindu Group of Publications launched an online image library.
Pictures can be downloaded from the website by making payments through credit cards. Prices of pictures start from Rs. 500.
The website, I gather, holds 40,000 images from The Hindu’s archive. The images are available for commercial use.
At about $10 an image, though, I have to wonder how much the photographers who shot these images will make. Or, is it a venture by The Hindu, for The Hindu?
