Can I login to Getty and download the images myself?
No, although we have a partnership with Getty, you can only access their library of photos and vectors by logging in to JAR and choosing the images you want. Your designer is the only one authorized to pull the images off their site for use in your designs. You can follow this steps on how to go about it.
How do I use Getty Images for my design requests?
You can access the images available through your Premium Getty subscription when you are making your request by hitting this button:
Once you hit this button it will take you to this screen, hit this button next:
After that it will send you to this screen, type in a topic and hit search:
Once you do this it will pop up with two sights to search from. Upsplash is another sight our designers can reference for images that is free. However, if you have a Premium Membership to Getty, the lower link will appear. Click on this and begin searching your extended options, just hit the add button at the bottom of any images you want to put on the request.
Do I have license for the images used in the design?
Yes! You’re in the clear to resell the designs we’re creating but there is a limit. The license you have is a single use license as that is our deal with Getty. We're licensed so that the road would end with your customers purchasing from you and using directly, we’re not licensing your customers to edit or use it as template and resell it on their own, beyond that we can't guarantee they'd be covered by Getty's agreement.
If I want to use the image for another purpose do I need to to make a new request?
Yes, since you’ve been issued a single use license that is only valid for one purpose. So if you requested a specific design for Merch but would like to use that again for Social Media, you would need to make another request so that your designer will generate another license for you.
I want to copyright the designs I’ve received from Design Pickle, can I do that.
Unfortunately, this is not a possibility as they are only licensing the designs for our use in creating the designs for you. In our licensing agreement with Getty, we are only using Royalty-Free images, which are Non-exclusive, meaning that others could license the same image for use in other designs.
We however always make modifications to these images to ensure we provide you with a unique design, but the terms of Getty would prevent you from being able to claim exclusive and assignable legal right to the designs.

Someone copied the design provided by Design Pickle, can you help me file a complaint?
I completely understand your desire to seek some way to prevent these copycats from using your designs as their own. We try to follow the changes and issues in the POD communities and find the issue of pixel for pixel copies coming up quite a bit. We would gladly help provide any documentation necessary to help file an infringement report. Simply send an email to email@example.com.
Providing a copy of the original request and the completed design email have been enough for other clients to both protect their designs and fight claims against them. Do let us know if there are any specific designs that we can help and gather information in order to help you file a report and have these designs taken down.
I got a copyright infringement notice by using one of your designs, how do I get proof that the image I used is licensed?
Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide a copy of the original request and the completed design email plust the license number generated by Getty when we downloaded the image. It has been enough for other clients to protect their designs and fight claims against them.
