Getty Images partnered with Flickr last year to create a database of photos intended for commercial licensing. After months of sorting through the thousands of candidates, the editorial staff of Getty Images picked their favorites. The catalog of Flickr’s 3 billions images from more than 35 million members is truly daunting, but Getty Images is hoping to add thousands of new photos to the new Flickr Collection every month. The images are meant to be a living collection and are a selection of vibrant moments captured on camera. Flickr has a wonderful collection of spontaneous portraits and individualistic images that hold increasing value in the commercial sector. Stock photography is quickly transforming from a collection of professionals to the wider public who with homeschooled photographic knowledge and high-quality cameras.

Patrick McMullan, the photographer with the world's largest archive of living subjects, didn't shoot the Vanity Fair Oscar party this year for the first time since the magazine began throwing it in 1994? Turns out the Getty/WireImage photo agency had exclusive rights to cover the star-studded bash. "They had the monopoly. I could have gone to the party, but I couldn't have shot it," McMullan told Page Six. "They're trying to take over the world. It's like 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers.' " McMullan heard WireImage paid the glossy $200,000 for the exclusive rights. "I don't blame Vanity Fair," he said. One source said no money changed hands. A rep for VF said: "We decided to simplify things this year and go with a single distributor for the photos from inside the party, and Getty and WireImage have the largest distribution." -NY Post Page Six

Fired by MOMA

The Museum of Modern Art yesterday dumped a rogue ad executive who had ordered the vandalism of his own promotion campaign in Brooklyn. Doug Jaeger heads The Happy Corp., which had been hired by MoMA to design its subway ads. "[We] have completely severed our relationship with the company," said a MoMA spokeswoman. Aided by vandals associated with subway-ad slasher "Poster Boy," Jaeger had had the posters at the Atlantic Avenue station rearranged in a publicity stunt. -DAVID K. LI, The Ny Post
