Getty Images and Flickr announced the launch of the Flickr Collection, a creative imagery collection now available exclusively on gettyimages.com for commercial licensing. With the debut of this first-of-its-kind collection, customers can easily access and license the inspirational and unexpected photographs for which the Flickr community is known.
Photographs for the Flickr Collection were selected by Getty Imagesâ€™ editors based on their expertise in licensing digital content and insights into customersâ€™ needs. The collection features a variety of conceptual imagery, such as everyday scenes and believable subjects, and original and regionally relevant content. It is a living collection, with thousands of new images added each month to meet the evolving needs of Getty Imagesâ€™ customers. Images from the Flickr Collection are available in both royalty-free and rights-managed licensing models.
Getty Images will continue to build this collection over time by inviting select Flickr members to participate. Members who choose to participate will benefit from the global reach and distribution power of Getty Images to help market their images, as well as its unmatched expertise and experience in rights and clearances of digital media.
