Getty Images buys PhotoLibrary to increase their creative collection

Getty Images publicaly confirmed their latest purchase of Photolibrary to expand their creative collection of stock photography. Stock photo buying has grown in popularity over the last few years as bloggers, website designers and graphic designers turn to stock photo agencies for immediate images to support their client and personal deadlines.  The recent purchase of Photolibrary by Getty Images reflects the creative demand of this buying audience and the need for high quality, unique stock photos that have royalty free licensing.

Photolibrary has been supplying and selling stock photos, both royalty free and rights managed, for over 40 years and represents the world’s leading stock brands and finest photographers from around the world. They represented many international stock photo agencies and developed into a stock photo and media hub for Fresh Food Images, Garden Picture Library and Monsoon.  Getty Images has strategically purchased Photolibrary to increase their creative collection and utilize the creative content that Photolibrary has been so successful in providing.

Both stock photo agency models are international, multi-lingual, provide multi-media content and reach global communities. Getty Images customers will benefit with the addition of more local and global images, an increase in the Getty Images library, and access to top photographers work.

Getty Images as a stock photo agency will continue to drive the design community forward and inspire communicators. They provide the tools to enable designers and writers to enhance their work through images and media and tell their story.

Sign up for Getty Images to day to benefit from this new addition to their image library.
