What is an illustration?
How can I use stock illustrations?
What file formats are available for download?
While JPEG raster images are made up of pixels (tiny colored squares arranged in a rectangular grid to form an image), vector graphics use mathematical calculations to plot points and the paths that connect them to describe the image.
Because EPS files can be easily manipulated, colored and resized without any loss of quality, you'll need a specialized vector‑editing program like Adobe® Illustrator®, InDesign, CorelDraw, Publisher, or Inkscape (free) to open and edit them.
If you don't have access to one of these programs, you can always download a flattened (non‑editable) JPEG version of any Getty Images illustration.
Can I use stock illustrations for commercial projects?
Purchasing a licence gives you the legal right to use the file, plus it ensures that our contributors are paid for the great work they do.
What is the difference between graphic design and illustration?
On the other hand, illustrations are typically hand‑drawn or painted stand‑alone images that can be used to tell a story or visually represent a complex concept.
While both graphic design and illustration involve visual elements and artistry, they are ultimately distinct crafts that serve different purposes.
Getty Images has thousands of high‑quality stock illustrations that are searchable by function, medium, and style. You’ll design with confidence when know you can find the perfect illustration elements for your project.
