I've personally been following this development with great interest. I think that Photoshelter sent out an email last week about this. Some are quite cynical about it saying that Google has proposed, started and then dropped many promising developments before.

I think that it could be a game changer for selling direct. But agencies are sure to strip our meta data for anything that runs through them.

Still, I think that this is a major step forwards if they do bring it to market. Interestingly, I've never noticed the "video" and "product" tags that are now in Google image search before.

Then "their" images will not be shown on google searches. And that's great thing.

CommuniCat:
I think that we will all be "agreeing" to a change in the standard terms and conditions shortly.

Uncle Pete:
After reading, there needs to be a license and link to a checkout page. Image Chekout Page? Kind of like self hosted, and the catch for me has always been, the checkout page. I mean, someone can find a site and a gallery, then the problem is, how do I collect the money?
