LONDON and NEW YORK, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Getty Images today announces an innovative change to its traditional watermark. The redesign sees the Getty Images watermark that is so familiar to content users now replaced with a more subtle, side-aligned icon that provides customers with vital information at a glance, and quick URL to license the image.

By rethinking how the vital information that each image carries is communicated, Getty Images and R/GA London have transformed the watermark into a helpful tool. The new watermark, which is live from today, has been introduced across Getty Images' entire online stills collection, which encompasses more than 52 million images spanning creative and editorial content and highlights a more open, innovative and respectful way to highlight each image's information.
