LIFE.com launched today Tuesday morning at 9:00. That means 7 million photos–with 3,000 new pictures added every day–are now yours to explore. You can follow Life on Facebook or Twitter.
Why would you be interested in this? Because you can always learn a thing or two and these are some of the best images ever taken for one of the greatest magazines in history.
Welcome to LIFE.com, the largest, most amazing collection of professional photography on the Web.
LIFE and Getty Images, the two most recognized names in photography, have joined forces to provide you instant access to millions of breathtaking photographs — for free. LIFE.com not only lets you wander through the legendary LIFE and Getty archives, but with more than 3,000 new photos added every day, it also gives you the best pictures of the people and places shaping our world now.
These are the photos you won’t forget. Taken by the world’s top photographers and curated by LIFE editors, they tell the story of our times — our heroes, our stars, our celebrations and heartbreak, the events etched in our memory and the small moments that make life sweet. When you find a photo you like, you’ll be able to share it, print it, and sometimes even buy it.
We’ll update the site throughout the day, but to make sure you never miss a great shot, sign up for our weekly “Picks of the Week” E-newsletter. And if you have suggestions or comments about our site, please share them with us — LIFE.com will be constantly improving and adding new features to give you the best experience possible.
