Getty Images completes acquisition of photolibrary

The acquisition was first announced on April 27, 2011 and will bring Photolibrary’s renowned collections, including Peter Arnold and Oxford Scientific, to even more customers around the world.

With the combined resources of Getty Images and Photolibrary, Getty Images will build upon their complementary geographic presence whilst making Photolibrary’s content more widely available for global online distribution.

The acquisition was driven by customers’ growing appetite for a greater choice of both local and global content. The content will be supported by Getty Images’ Web site and worldwide imagery distribution platform, which features search in local languages and purchase in local currencies.
