Common questions

Do I still have the license for my iStock audio downloads?

Yes. You'll continue to have the license to all audio files downloaded from iStock. The only thing that's going to change moving forward is where you license new audio.

Can I use my iStock credits on Getty Images Music?

No. Getty Images Music uses a la carte pricing, which means you'll pay in currency not credits to download files.

Will every iStock audio file be available on Getty Images Music?

While many iStock audio files are already available on Getty Images Music and we're moving more over in the months to come, some files won't be there right away.

Will I be able to access my previous audio downloads?

Because iStock no longer has any audio files on our site, you do not have access to past audio downloads in your download history.
