New image plugin for your favourite Adobe apps

Discover and manage Getty Images content directly in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Stock image library Getty Images has unveiled a new, free image plugin for Adobe Creative Cloud software. The news comes just weeks after competitor Shutterstock announced integration with Photoshop, but the Getty team have taken things a step further, integrating its asset library with not only Photoshop but Illustrator and InDesign too. 

Giving creatives access to over 140 million images and vectors within an easy-to-use workflow, the new plugin means designers can easily search, license and use amazing imagery – all without leaving their design tools.

Key features of the plugin include:

  • Search for and filter images using the advanced Getty Images search experience
  • Design without limits by using hi-res comps
  • Automatically carry over edits when going from comp to the final, licensed version
  • Save and organize images with Getty Images’ Boards tool
  • Access all previous downloads and purchases across platforms 
  • Set your own preferences to tailor the plugin experience toward your needs
  • No daily or monthly download limits with Getty Images Premium Access subscriptions or UltraPacks
  • Seamless integration with Getty Images’ Premium Accessand UltraPacks accounts - offering customers simple downloads of images directly in Creative Cloud
