Getty Images API scheduled downtime - 2018-05-19

  1. Hello Getty Images API partner,

    As part of our ongoing work to ensure you are receiving the fastest, most dependable API service, this Saturday, May 19, we will have a period of planned downtime beginning at 8:00 PM PDT, lasting for approximately 4 hours. During this time, our APIs will be in "maintenance mode", returning an HTTP 503 response code. For those non-technical folks, this means that instead of getting no response from our API (ultimately leading to timeout errors) your application will get a response indicating that we are currently down.

    This downtime also applies to our websites -, and

    Lastly, this forum post will be updated once the downtime begins and again when it ends.

    Thanks for your patience and support. Please contact us at if you have any questions.
