Blogging Tools: PicApp

One issue fashion and celebrity bloggers face is the access to affordable celebrity photos.  Mashable recently introduced us to PicApp.  PicApp is a service which has recently partnered with Splash News to offer bloggers free celebrity photos.  The only catch is the script required to insert the photos also inserts an advertisement below each photo.

The required advertising is, of course, the tradeoff. Are you willing to subject your readers to advertisements you have no control over? Are free celebrity photos more important? Additionally, the embed code runs off script instead of html which could affect your load time.

Staying out of legal trouble can be treacherous when posting about celebrities.  Photo rights, liabilities, slander – the list goes on.  How do you feel about services like PicApp?
