Ads Coming Soon to a Photo Near You

You’ve probably seen in-video advertising, but how about ads placed in images? A company called Image Space Media wants to make sure you do.

Established in 2008, they’re the first and leading provider of in-image advertising on the web. This means relevant advertisements are placed in an overlay that appears over a portion of an image or photograph, just like the advertisements YouTube places at the bottom of most videos.

While you might hate this idea as an internet user or photographer, this may be a glimpse of what’s to come in terms of online advertising.

Now here’s a question: If Flickr started running these in-image ads for non-pro accounts, would you still use the service?
