Getty Images API SDK - .NET

build status NuGet version NuGet Open Hub

Introduction

This SDK makes using the Getty Images API easy. It handles credential management, makes HTTP requests and is written with a fluent style in mind. For more info about the API, see the Documentation.

  • Functionality for all endpoints.

Help & Support

Getting started

Obtain an API Key

If you don't already have an API key, fill out and submit the contact form to be connected to our Sales team.

Using the Nuget Package

The SDK is published to the public Nuget package repository.

Open the package manager and add the package to your project: Add nuget package reference

Examples

The SDK supports async operations.

var client = ApiClient.GetApiClientWithClientCredentials("YOUR_API_KEY", "YOUR_API_SECRET");
var searchResult = await client.SearchImagesEditorial()
    .WithEditorialSegment(EditorialSegment.News)
    .WithPhrase("all vocabulary")
    .WithSortOrder(SortOrder.Newest)
    .ExecuteAsync();

foreach (var image in searchResult.images)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Title: {0} \r\nId: {1}", image.title, image.id);
}

The SDK can also be used synchronously, such as when running in a console application:

var client = ApiClient.GetApiClientWithClientCredentials("YOUR_API_KEY", "YOUR_API_SECRET");
var searchResult = client.SearchImagesEditorial()
    .WithEditorialSegment(EditorialSegment.News)
    .WithPhrase("all vocabulary")
    .WithSortOrder(SortOrder.Newest)
    .ExecuteAsync()
    .Result;

foreach (var image in searchResult.images)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Title: {0} \r\nId: {1}", image.title, image.id);
}

Results are returned as dynamic. Visit the API Interactive Documentation to learn more about available parameters and to see what the response objects look like.

ASP.NET Webforms

When using the SDK in a Webforms project, there are a few extra steps needed. For more detailed information, see Using Asynchronous Methods in ASP.NET 4.5 on Microsoft's documentation website.

First, the Page must be marked as Async="true":

<%@ Page Language="C#" Async="true" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Images.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebFormsSdkTest.Images" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <div>
            <asp:Repeater ID="RepeaterImages" runat="server">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <asp:Image runat="server" ImageUrl='<%#Container.DataItem%>'/>
                </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:Repeater>
        </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Then register an async task in the Page_Load method:

public partial class Images : Page
{
    public List<string> ImageList { get; set; }
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        RegisterAsyncTask(new PageAsyncTask(GetImages));
    }

    private async Task GetImages()
    {
        var client = ApiClient.GetApiClientWithClientCredentials("YOUR_API_KEY",
            "YOUR_API_SECRET");
        var response = await client.SearchImagesCreative().WithPhrase("tacos").ExecuteAsync();
        ImageList = new List<string>();
        for (int i = 0; i < response.images.Count; i++)
        {
            ImageList.Add((string)response.images[i].display_sizes[0].uri);
        }

        RepeaterImages.DataSource = ImageList;
        RepeaterImages.DataBind();
    }
}

Building From Source Code

This is only necessary if you would like to contribute to the project. Otherwise, use the Nuget Package
