Outlined below are the main points which you can use as a quick guide to submitting your images.

Submission requirements Ethe main points
  • We will only accept JPEG images which have been converted from uncompressed 47.5-52 MB TIFF files, (flattened, with no layers, paths or channels) - 24 bit RGB Color, 8 bits per channel (8 bit file).
  • For 35mm digital capture, we strongly recommend use of a professional-quality digital SLR using RAW or uncompressed TIFF format. Most compact "point-and-shoot" and consumer-level cameras do not produce images of the level of quality our customers demand, and would not be suitable for submission to Getty Images.
  • All isolated visible logos must be removed via retouching prior to submission, as must dust, hair, scratches etc.
  • Model and Property releases are required with all images where relevant and must be supplied in digital format. To download copies of our releases please click here .
  • Metadata (also known as captioning) must also be supplied to us digitally in IPTC, XMP, Excel or Text File formats.
  • We only accept digital files from scanned film if they have been drum scanned by a professional scanning house or scanned using the approved desk top film scanners from the following list: Imacon 949, 848, 646, 343; Fuji Lanovia Quattro and Finescan; Creo Eversmart Supreme 11, Eversmart Select 11, IQsmart 1,2,3
