Frequently asked questions

Explore common topics and subjects our users ask us about.
How do I add or remove users?
You have three options of adding users, depending on the type of user you’d like to set up:

Guest Users: These users can search for content within your account and collaborate with Boards, but are not able to download images or videos. Guest users don't need to register on or have an account. To invite a guest user, go to Your Account, copy the Guest Preview URL and send it to a user. If you want them to use a Board to collect images, create a Board and share it with them using the URL. Guest Preview displays exactly what users of your plan are seeing, without the ability to download.

Download Users: These users can search and download images and videos under the agreement and collaborate using Boards. To enable access for this user, have them register on, and then contact us by email with their username and ask to have them added to your company account with permission to download on the Premium Access agreement. You can add multiple users at the same time as a company administrator.

View Only Users: These users are collaborators that can search for images and videos within your agreement but can’t download. After they register on, contact us with their username and ask to have them added to your company account and enabled for View Only Premium Access. You can add multiple users at the same time.
What happens if there are other teams in my organization who want to use my agreement (either search only or search and download)?
If other teams need ongoing access to your agreement, contact us to discuss adding additional users or collections to your agreement. Each user should have their own username and password on Getty Images so you can track downloads and usage.
How can you find more relevant imagery?
Use the Zoom In and Zoom Out technique to discover a wider range of images that are relevant to you. Start by entering more detailed keywords like “woman, trail running, forest, rainy day” to narrow your search and then switch to more general keywords like “running, outdoors, nature” to improve the variety of your results.
How can you easily filter your search?
You can filter your search using the panel on the left of the search page. For example, you can use the filter to look for specific camera techniques or photo composition like one person, two people, or a group. To search for videos, select Video in the right‑hand corner of the search bar. You cannot search for videos and images at the same time.

Reading the keywords of images you like will give you new search terms to try and also help improve your keyword vocabulary.
How can you further refine your results?
You can use words like "not" to eliminate a certain search term—for example entering "dogs not cats" would show dogs, but no cats in the results. You can also use "or" as in "dogs or cats," which would include images with only dogs, cats and dogs, and only cats together. If you use "and" it will show images with both dogs and cats only.
How can you find similar imagery?
When you discover an image or video you like, you can find similar images or videos below the one you’re viewing—these can be images from the same shoots, or from the same photographer or videographer. However, they can also just be images that look visually similar—click through the View all button to explore more images.
How can I organize imagery I find?
When you’re searching, add images or videos to Boards—and, once you have a collection of images, you can refine them further so you’re only left with your favorites.  Boards are the best way to create, curate, and collaborate all in one place.
How do I manage usage and track content used for projects?
Make sure each user has a separate username that is associated with your agreements, which will allow you to track downloads by user.

Project codes: When your Premium Access agreement is set up, you'll have the option to add project codes. These can be cost centers, departments, or other IDs and can be set as optional or required for all downloads. If you do enable this optional feature, project code selection will be required for all users within the agreement. Contact your company administrator to set up this feature.

Notes: When your Premium Access agreement is set up, you have an option to add a notes field where you can add comments about projects, usage, or whatever you want. This can be optional or required for all downloads. Contact your company administrator to set up this feature.

Download Report: To download a report of all downloads including project codes, notes, and additional downloaded content, login to your agreement, go to Your Account and select Download. Click the Export to CSV link to use this in Excel or other spreadsheet software to track usage by project, user, and content. Or, narrow your report to a single user if desired.

Available Downloads: You can track your agreement details and available downloads by logging in to your agreement and going to Overview.

Prior downloads: If you’ve downloaded images or videos in the past, you’ll now receive a notification if you try to download the same asset again.
How do I manage my invoices?
Go to Your Account and select Invoices, which will show your invoices that are open or paid. You can also pay invoices if you’re a terms customer by selecting Pay Invoice. The invoice will be charged to the credit card that is associated with your login. If you do not see the Pay Invoice button, your credit card may not be on file—any signed‑in user can add a credit card to their account at any time (or change saved cards on file).
To get to this page, click through to Account, and then the Profile menu.

How do I know what images and videos I have access to with my agreement?
For most users, your Premium Access agreement is enabled by default and applied to your search results. You can turn the Premium Access search filter on or off by toggling the Premium Access switch under the left filter panel. Be sure the Premium Access filter is checked to search content that’s only available within your agreement.

If the Premium Access only filter is enabled, you’ll see a Premium Access Download button on any image you select. If you are being asked to add an image to your cart and pay, double check that the filter is enabled, as that specific image or video may not be included under your agreement.
What do I do if my needs change?
Contact us if you need images or videos that are not included under your current agreement, require different usage rights, want additional collections, or if you need more downloads added. You can also upgrade your existing agreement, purchase more images or videos outside of your agreement with an UltraPack, or work with your sales rep to find a custom solution that fits your needs.
