The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #2

Pages with getty embeds shouldn't generate IV

According to this issue:
Ilya Borovik
I am specifying the answer from

Let's compare original embeds and images in IV:
1) The same photo without any losses.
2) Embeds do not offer image zooming and redirect to the image details page on Getty. This behaviour is present in IV: image link points to the same Getty page with details.
3) Credits to photographer are present in embed (below the image) and in IV (on the image). Copyrights are preserved.
4) Difference: there is no way to extract Collection name knowing the photo ID. I find it not critical because the main parts like photo, credits and link are present. Collection is always found on the details page. Not sure if official support for Getty Embeds will be better, but simple like this.

I hope to get a response with argumentation. We already have opposite answers from admins. I use official Getty API to retrieve photos and think there is no bad thing in displaying Getty Images the way I do.
Declined by admin
It's better to mark Getty embeds as unsupported, but since the template already extracted them using Getty API and there was a lot of confusing answers from admins, I don't accept the issue.
