New functionality: Search By Image - February 9, 2018

  1. You may have noticed that our sites (gettyimages.com and istockphoto.com) have functionality that allows you search for images by uploading your own photo to receive results of similar content from our catalog of creative images.

    Well... I have good news for all you Getty Images API fanatics! This same functionality is now available in our API! Load an image to our AWS S3 bucket, receive a URL, then use that URL as the search parameter in your request to /v3/search/images/creative-by-image.

    The uses for this functionality are endless... let your users take a photo and then find similar images from the pool of creative content in your license agreement. Find a photo of some tasty donuts online, see what we have in our catalog that's equally delicious. Tired of using the same stock photo of business people shaking hands? See what other agreeable professionals are lurking in our library! Insider tip: there's a lot and they're happily takin' care of Business.
