Important updates on Thinkstock

We’ll be taking steps between now and 2019 to invite Thinkstock subscribers and image pack users to move up to Getty Images and iStock by Getty Images, where they’ll enjoy access to all of the great images available on Thinkstock, plus more. As part of this move, starting April 2018, we will no longer sell any subscriptions or images packs on Thinkstock.


How will this affect my current subscription or image packs?
Don’t worry, you can use your current subscription or image pack until it runs out of downloads or expires - there’s no rush.

 

What happens when my monthly subscription ends or my image pack runs out of downloads?

When your subscription or image pack expires we invite you to check out iStock - you’ll get all the best images from Thinkstock, plus:

  • Millions of images and videos you won’t find anywhere else
  • Buy as little as one image, with no minimum purchase, at great low prices
  • Save with flexible subscriptions from 10 to 750 downloads/month
  • No daily download limits

 

Check out iStock and save 20% off on your first order when you use the promo code: THINKSTOCK20 Limited time offer. May only be used one time.

 

What happens when my 1-year subscription ends?

Once your 1-year subscription ends you'll get a special offer to move to a Getty Images Premium Access subscription that will give you all the things you love about Thinkstock, plus the benefits of Getty Images.

What if I want to renew or purchase a 1-year subscription?

You can no longer purchase or renew 1-year subscriptions on Thinkstock, but we would be happy to set you up with a Getty Images Premium Access 1-year subscription, which will give you all the things you love about Thinkstock, plus benefits like:

  • Access to millions of the world’s best images across Getty Images and iStock all in one place
  • No daily or monthly download limits
  • Integrated tools for Adobe® Creative Cloud®, WordPress, DropBox and Salesforce

We will be rolling out more changes in the coming months. We’ll share more information as it becomes available.

FAQs

Why is Thinkstock retiring?
We’re retiring Thinkstock so we can focus on bringing you more spectacular images, flexible plans, enhanced features and integrated tools on Getty Images and iStock by Getty Images.
 
When is Thinkstock retiring?
We’ll be retiring Thinkstock in mid-2019. As a result, we no longer sell or renew any subscriptions or image packs. You can continue to download with previously purchased subscriptions and image packs until they run out of downloads or expire.
 
What happens to my previous downloads?
 
If you have a 1-year subscription, your previous downloads will still be accessible to you on Thinkstock until the site is shut down, mid-2019. In advance of that, if you have an active Premium Access subscription, we will move your previous Thinkstock downloads over to Getty Images so you've got everything you need after Thinkstock is retired.
 
If you have a monthly subscription, your previous downloads will still be accessible to you on Thinkstock until the site is shut down mid-2019 or your monthly subscription expires.
 
If you have an image pack, your previous downloads will still be accessible to you on Thinkstock until the site is shut down mid-2019 or your image pack expires.
 
What happens to my current lightboxes?
You can continue to access your lightboxes on Thinkstock until mid-2019. Because Thinkstock images also lives on the Getty Images and iStock, you can search by the Thinkstock image ID to find the same images on those sites.
 
What is Getty Images Premium Access?
Getty Images Premium Access is a yearly subscription that has a lot of the same features as a Thinkstock 1-year subscription, plus new benefits you can only find at Getty Images. Contact a sales representative for more details.
 
Why can’t I just keep my Thinkstock 1-year subscription until the site goes away?
If you have an active 1-year subscription you can continue to use it until it expires. After that, we will help you make the move to Getty Images Premium Access so you can retain access to your existing content and get additional features.
 
Do Getty Images and iStock have the same content as Thinkstock?
All of the best images from Thinkstock are available on Getty Images and iStock. A small percentage of the Thinkstock library is not available on iStock.
