Optimizing Your Premium Access

Are you getting the most out of your Getty Images subscription? Join Customer Success Director Lizzy Day and our team of insiders as they take you from set up and search tips to account administration and download workflows—showing how your Premium Access resources will have you working faster, managing smarter, and finding the perfect image or video with ease.

Whether you’re new to Getty Images or a long-time user, there’s something for everyone to take away. You don’t want to miss it!


How do I know what's included in my plan?

For most users, your Premium Access agreement is enabled by default and applied to your search results. You can turn the Premium Access search filter on or off by toggling the Premium Access switch under the left filter panel. Be sure the Premium Access filter is checked to search content that’s only available within your agreement. If the Premium Access only filter is enabled, you’ll see a Premium Access Download button on any image you select.

How can I access hi-res comps?

To download a comp, simply go to a file’s details page or on the search results page and click the Comp button below the image. You’re welcome to use high res comps in your work-in-progress projects for test or sample purposes. However, please remember that a comp license is not an official license to use the content as the final end use.
