PHOTO sharing company Blipfoto has appointed a former executive at Getty Images to its board.

Lewis Blackwell, who has also held senior positions at Creative Review Magazine, Image Source and Evolve Images, joins the Edinburgh business as a non-executive director. He said: "Blipfoto is unique. It's not just a depository of pictures, the photos you find here tell stories - and that can't be replicated."

Blipfoto has had more than four million images posted on it.
