Corbis is now available on Getty Images

April 6, 2016 • Corbis

When is this happening?

Effective May 2, 2016, the Corbis business and website are no longer accessible and all Corbis customers are invited to enjoy the expanded benefits of Getty Images.

Why is Corbis shutting down?

As we announced several weeks ago, Visual China Group (VCG) has acquired Corbis Images, Corbis Motion, and Veer. You can find more information about this transaction and VCG’s partnership with Getty Images here.

What happens to my existing Corbis agreements?


Please contact your current Getty Images sales representative or our local Getty Images sales office to learn more about your options for transitioning your account to Getty Images.

How can I learn more about Getty Images and get access to Getty Images’ research and insights?

Please visit Getty Images’ Stories and Trends to learn more about our award-winning photographers and to explore the fascinating stories behind our imagery. You will also find trend-setting research and industry insights from our experts, including our latest visual trend report for 2016.

What content is being migrated?

While we will not be migrating all Corbis content, the most popular content from Corbis imagery, video and archive collections will be moved into Getty Images collections along with many of the image partners. Please contact Getty Images sales if you have questions about a specific piece of Corbis content.

When will the content migration be completed?

A significant amount of Corbis’ best content has been selected by Getty Images experts and has been migrated and available on gettyimages.com as of May 2, 2016, with some continuing migration during the summer. Please contact Getty Images sales if you have questions about a specific Corbis collection or image.

How can I learn more about Getty Images pricing?

You can learn more about our new UltraPacks here, which offer simple licensing and built-in savings on royalty free creative imagery and video, plus most editorial images. If you have questions about rights-managed pricing or you would like to explore a customer agreement, please contact Getty Images sales.

How do I find the Corbis content on Getty Images?

Over the coming months, we are continuing to transition the Corbis content into multiple new collections on gettyimages.com, including the following examples. We will also be migrating Corbis content from many existing Getty Images partners, into the same collections we use for them today on gettyimages.com. If you have questions about specific Corbis images or collections, please contact Getty Images sales.
