If you haven’t heard the news yet, Corbis has shut down in May of 2016. That’s why you can’t access the website first. If you do search the stock site in search engines, you will be directed to Getty Images’ website. There you can access Corbis stock footage and images. You will no longer have access to your Corbis account and content, nor will you have access to your previous Corbis activities. You do, however, have the choice to transition to Getty or not.
If you do decide to use Getty Images services but do not have an account, Corbis automatically creates an account for you using your Corbis account email address. But, be sure to change your password for security reasons. If you already have a Getty account, you can continue to use to access the stock site’s own collection, Corbis stock footage and more. Not all content will be migrated, only the most popular videos, images and archive collections.
To purchase Corbis stock footage from Getty Images, you have two options. You can purchase by a la carte or via Ultrapacks. You can buy stock footages by a la carte with or without a Getty account. With an account, you can charge your purchases on your account or purchase with a credit card. Without one, you only have one choice – to purchase videos with your credit card. On the other hand, Ultrapacks have the following benefits:
- Simple licensing
- Access to all Royalty Free videos, images and editorial images
- Convenience and value because they never expire
Now that you can access and download Corbis stock footage from Getty Images, you have the opportunity to save more and complete your creative projects faster. Getty Images and affiliate websites also offer coupon codes to further your savings. Getty’s library is so huge that you will surely find the perfect video clip for your project – whether it’s from Corbis collection or Getty Images’.
