Freeimages has begun to hugely ravamp its site layout. Not everything seems to work (no functioning upload routine). Download numbers are not shown on the photos anymore obviously (all set to 0). And you can't comment on the photos. You can only start (private?) conversations with the photographer.
The photos collected over the past months are visible and downloadable now finally when you browse the galleries (but they still don't appear in the search when you search by keywords - very buggy).
The effort spent in the relaunch shows they still want to keep the place up.
Shark is a good term for Getty's. I don't like them either.
