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.

How to set up the integration

  3. Enter a Name for this configuration.

  4. Select New authentication to add your Bynder domain, which is the URL of your Bynder DAM, and a Permanent Token.

  5. Click Create, then Next.

  6. Select New authentication to add your Getty username and password.

    Note

    If you would like to connect more than one Getty account, you will need to configure a new Getty workflow for each account you would like to set up.

  7. [optional] If you would like Getty videos to also be uploaded to your Bynder account, check the box to Sync video.

  8. [optional] You can choose to Sync assets after a date. If a date is selected, only assets purchased after that date will be uploaded. If left blank, all assets purchased will be uploaded to the DAM.

How to use the integration

After configuration, all licensed images (and videos, if enabled) for the connected Getty account will begin to be uploaded to your Bynder DAM. Moving forward, any licensed asset will automatically be uploaded 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.
