Slideshows + Getty Images = Fresh Perspective on Bleacher Report
A few days ago, we announced our new partnership with Getty Images that will give all writers full access to the world’s best photographs.
Today, we are rolling out a new feature that will capture the full power of those images — Slideshows.
Many of you have noticed a few of these Slideshows around the site in recent weeks. This was part of a pilot process to see if readers would take to a new, more visually-focused approach to articles. The response has been strong, and countless members have sent me messages requesting the ability to create them.
With Getty Images fully integrated into our Slideshow creator, we are ready to give it to everyone.
The Bleacher Report community has been thrilled with the continued increase in article quality over the last year, but we also realized that there is a visual aspect to sports that is, well…priceless. Until today, we had not found the right way to combine great writing with amazing photo-journalism.
This week’s tag-team release of Getty Images and Slideshows will be a huge step in that direction.
