Getty Integration

Getty Images is a royalty-free image library where you can find countless creative stock photos, vector art illustrations, stock photography, and high-definition videos. The Getty integration automatically uploads licensed assets from your Getty account (or multiple accounts) to your Bynder DAM for a centralized asset management experience.

How to enable the Getty integration

Contact your Customer Success Manager to learn more about enabling the Getty Integration.

Important Information on Licensing

Before enabling this integration please check re-downloading rights with your Getty Account Manager. Each license agreement with Getty is unique, and only your Getty team will be able to determine what rights your account has. Specifically, this connector will re-download any asset that you or your organization downloaded within the current license term.

If your account does not have re-download rights, enabling this connection may cause duplicate downloads. That potentially impacts download limits under your account agreement. This connector is only compatible with the "Premium Access" licensing type.

Many enterprise accounts with Getty fall under that type. It will re-download any asset in the license history within the licensing term. Any assets licensed prior to that term will not be re-downloaded. Specific dates for those terms are only available from Getty.

    1. Click on Add Custom Field Mapping

    2. Select the dropdown fields in Adobe Field and map it to the Bynder Field to associate it with the specific Bynder metaproperty


      This can be left blank, if you only want keywords to be added to your assets.

How to use the integration

After configuration, all licensed images (and videos, if enabled) for the connected Getty account will begin to upload to your Bynder DAM or Waiting Room. Moving forward, any licensed asset will automatically upload to Bynder roughly 2 hours after you license it.

If you delete a Getty asset from the Bynder DAM it will not automatically be reuploaded to your Bynder DAM. If you delete a Getty asset from your Getty account or if your license expires, it will not automatically be deleted from Bynder.
