Yes, BSPH's Office of External Affairs has an account with Getty Images offering thousands of royalty-free images, icons and illustrations. These assets are intended for marketing purposes only and not for personal use.

Your audiences have cultivated a sophisticated eye that responds to a great marriage between your words and images. The discerning user will be able to select images that seem natural and authentic with good diversity. While we have a finite number of images available to our team, we want to offer up to 5 images per month for use on your School projects.

Please limit your requests to 5 images per month, and you should receive your photos in 2-3 business days.

When you are ready for an image to be downloaded, submit a ticket with the ID number(s) for the image(s) selected then we will download and send them to you.  We would also request that you share with us what the intended use for the image(s) will be:

  • Web
  • Print
  • Presentation

The Photo ID ( also called a "Creative #”) is found in the lower right of the detail page when clicking a thumbnail image.

If you don't see the Guest Preview banners then you've most likely exited the preview and we cannot guarantee the image you're looking at will be available to us. 

Downloading Comps

When you do find an image(s) that suit your needs, you can immediately download watermarked site for use in comps. To do this, simply click on the thumbnail image, and click on the Comp icon and select “Save image as…”

The ID can be found in the file names after the image title. For example, in this file name, the numbers in bold are the ID:


Do not upload comps into Drupal or another CMS, these have been watermarked, and are not legal for you to place on a public webpage.  If you need an image, put in a ticket, and someone from the web team will download the image for you.
