A Localized Gettyimages.com

Beginning today, you might notice a small change to the way you access gettyimages.com.

You’ll see the difference in your browser as we automatically redirect you to your local site –gettyimages.co.uk, gettyimages.ie, or gettyimages.dk, for example. One thing you won’t see is a difference in the quality or variety of imagery, footage and music you already find on gettyimages.com.

Once on your local site, you’ll also see stuff that’s specific to your country – like promotions, events and themed content. As well as prices automatically displayed in the correct currency for your country.

Auto redirection isn’t new: websites like Google and Yahoo use it to deliver a better, more relevant visitor experience. We’re hoping you’ll enjoy the benefits of going local at Getty Images too. But, if you don’t, you’ll always have the option to return to our .com site (or any other of our local sites) by using the ‘International’ button in the top right corner of the homepage.

If you have any feedback about the change – good or bad – please do get in touch by using the ‘Contact us’ section at the bottom left of your local site’s homepage. Or just leave a comment here.
