How do I integrate with the API?

Any API integration requires customers to have development resources. The implementation timeframe and scope of work varies and depends on your internal development resources and the level of customization and integration work you want to accomplish. Our technical support team is here to assist you along the way, and we provide extensive resources including documentation, online forums and code samples to facilitate and accelerate the implementation work.

What is an API?

An API is an application programming interface that allows you to seamlessly access and integrate functionality and data from other web services and websites like Gettyimages.com directly inside your products and internal workflows. The API service hosts and serves data dynamically and in real-time to minimize hosting and storing costs on your end. API services like Connect help you fully control and customize the integration, scaling as you grow.
