Access Millions of Visual Media Through the Cloudinary-Getty Images Integration

Partner news: Cloudinary-Getty Images Integration

Supported by intelligent automation, Cloudinary serves as an effective conduit between media asset management and delivery so you can take maximum advantage of assets, compress workflows, and build and coordinate engaging and inspiring customer experiences. Through Cloudinary’s Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution, which employs the company’s innovative image and video APIs, creative and marketing teams can benefit from them, as well as from many AI-powered and automated capabilities. As a result, you can transform, optimize, and deliver media at scale on an intuitive UI.

A Win-Win Partnership

Today’s announcement of the integration of Cloudinary with Getty Images is great news for Cloudinary users, who can now, through our DAM solution, leverage Getty Images’ treasure trove of creative images and videos for content. Specifically, you can do the following:

  • Search, view, license, and use media from two Getty Images sources, iStock, and Unsplash.
  • Retrieve your licensed images and videos from those sources and then tag, organize, manipulate, and deliver the media through Cloudinary.

What follows is a much simplified asset management process and a huge reduction of the manual, often mundane drudgery during the assets’ lifecycle: downloading, editing, and uploading. And that’s saying nothing of the elimination of the confusion and headache that inevitably accompanies siloed setups, which are inherently roadblocks for cross-team collaborations.

The Experts’ Take

At 3:00 p.m. ET today at ImageCon, Cloudinary’s fifth annual user conference, executives from Cloudinary, Getty Images, and Dolby Laboratories will share their insights on the power of visual content and sound. Interested? Register for free and tune in.

Also, on ImageCon’s agenda tomorrow (Wednesday, October 20) is an update of Cloudinary’s products and the ways in which brands are making use of the features to craft visual stories and foster interactions with customers. We hope you’ll join us.

"No problem," you say, hiding your fear that it's not something that can be done overnight. Just taking the first metric, Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), how can you possibly identify all the large elements - most likely images or video posters - of the many hundreds of pages that make up your site? There are already thousands of high-resolution (read massive) media files stored away, which marketing could use any time. How are you going to make sure they're all compressed to a size small enough to be delivered within the threshold? Not to mention all the new images and videos that will be created over time...

How to Tap Into the Value of User-Generated Content (UGC)

User-generated content (UGC) took off with, first of all, the advent of the internet and, subsequently, social networks. Everyday consumers were given keys to the kingdom, so to speak, so that they, too, could compose and post content, simultaneously engaging with others online. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok—the networks through which we can create and publish content have grown exponentially, and brands are becoming aware of the benefits of tapping into the gold mines offered by those networks.

A glance at any General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) article would reveal that—unlike Android device IDs (AID), through which users can reset their web address—keeping user identifiers, such as Internal Protocol (IP) and Media Access Control (MAC) addresses, as well as International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), violates privacy. As a solution, you can discard all privacy identifications or make them visible to users for reset.
