Important updates on Thinkstock

With Thinkstock shutting down in mid-2019, we no longer sell subscriptions or image packs and have turned off the ability to search and download images. For further image needs, go to Getty Images and iStock by Getty Images, where you'll enjoy access to the best images that were available on Thinkstock, plus more.


How will this affect my current subscription or image packs?
If you have a current image pack or subscription your lightboxes and previous downloads will still be available until the site is retired in mid-2019. If you have an image pack or subscription, please contact us to learn about special offers.

 

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

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 retired Thinkstock in mid-May 2019. As a result, we no longer sell or renew any subscriptions or image packs and have turned off the ability to search and download images. If you have an image pack or subscription, please contact us to learn about special offers.
 
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 at the end of June 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 at the end of June 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 at the end of June 2019 or your image pack expires.
 
What happens if my subscription doesn't expire before the site retirement date?

Contact a sales representative for more information.
 
What happens to my current lightboxes?
You can continue to access your lightboxes on Thinkstock until the end of June 2019. Because the best Thinkstock images also live on 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.
 
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.
 
After an image pack expires, can I continue using the images I have downloaded?
Yes. Image pack downloads may be used in projects indefinitely according to the terms of the Image Pack Licence Agreement.
 
What licence is included with image pack downloads? Are there any restrictions on how images may be used?
Please refer to our Image Pack Licence Agreement.
