This is actually a test of picapp. Some time ago, I had wrote about the app but at that time, it couldn’t work with wordpress.

To refresh your memory, PicApp (according it its site description) offers online publishers and bloggers a single source for millions of premium quality and free images to use legally and enhance their sites. News and photo agencies licensing images to PicApp include, among others, Getty Images, Corbis, Image Source and Splash News. PicApp has over 10 millions images with over 10,000 images updated daily; covering all types of editorial and creative image categories.

Copyright is an important issue and one that’s set to grow as online publishing proliferates, and it’s interesting to see online businesses that both sidestep and leverage this minefield to monetize content.

What a better way to test the app, than to celebrate Obama’s win as the first African-American President of the USA? Who incidentally won in part due to his new media savvy?
