Getty Images is one of the largest stock photo agencies in the market. Established in 1995, it has been around for decades , providing creative professionals around the world with a reliable and trusted source of premium royalty-free images and videos. It works mostly with Rights-Managed Licenses, which means the price of the image depends on how you intend to use it. Recently, it introduced a new purchasing option that will surely bring you delight.
Getty Images Ultrapacks
The new purchasing option offered by the Getty Images website is an Ultrapack. An Ultrapack is a pack of images (5, 10, 15 and 25 downloads). It features a built-in volume discount that does not require a coupon or promo code to redeem. You simply save more when you purchase more. It does not require you to choose images beforehand, as well. You can download instantly if you already know what images you want, or use your image downloads as needed on future projects.
Why can you download images anytime you want? Ultrapacks never expire. As long as you sign in to your Getty Images account at least once a year, you can use your downloads in any future project. By signing in to your account at least once every year, you extend the use of you partially-used downloads to the next year. Log in once and you do not have to worry about expiration date anymore.
Ultrapacks are almost as good as coupon and promo codes. You do not need to redeem any code to enjoy the discounts. They already provides 30% off to the price per image. More importantly, they give access to Getty Images commercial and editorial photos. They give you access to over 50 million royalty-free images and videos, and to most editorial Rights-Managed offer. It is no wonder that the stock has one of the greatest celebrity editorial offer.
Another great feature of Ultrapacks is the custom license. This type of license adds more right to the images and allows a wider range of usage. Images bought through these packs can be used in digital, broadcast, social media and print. They do not have print run limits or impressions. They also do not have monetary limits on indemnification. Moreover, they provide access to multiple users to the download images.
What makes Getty Images stand out from its counterparts? Unlike Shutterstock, iStock and other cheap stock photo websites, it does not increase its prices for a different license. It offers images at the same price. If you require a different license for your creative projects, you do not have to worry about paying a little bit more. Commercial photos are bound with royalty-free license, while editorial photos come with custom Editorial rights-managed license.
