This is what'll make your jaw drop:

2012 Estimated Revenue

 

Creative stills: $348 million (29%)Editorial: $289 million (24%)iStock: $262 million (22%)Other: $159 million (13%)Footage and multimedia: $83 million (7%)B2B music: $46 million (4%)

That's 22% of Getty's total revenue.  Some day Bruce is going to wake up and discover that he pretty much owns the place afterall.
