Getty Images (Q1520122) is one of the world's largest commercial photo libraries; having acquired any other such libraries over the years. They have images of people and events which are often not depicted in free images.

Note: if I use, I'm redirected to - can people in other countries check what they get? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:17, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose It's not an ID, it's using their search engine. Make this experience: Type "this is super random" in their search engine, and you will be redirected to "". So how do we decide for the string then? It should not be in the authority control category and should not be considered as a unique identifier. --Deansfa (talk) 16:48, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, it is indeed not an identifier. Thanks Deansfa for noticing that. − Pintoch (talk) 15:55, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose it's an interesting resource, but certainly this one is not an authoritative identifier but a random search chain, unless someone provides evidence on the contrary. strakhov (talk) 01:12, 6 February 2019 (UTC)

 Not done per above. I've had a quick look, and this site does have identifiers for "events" and "child events" (e.g. 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship (Q41173535) -> 775314359, and 2019 Australian Grand Prix (Q60853029) -> 775279042), but if anyone wants to pursue these, they should be proposed as a new property. --99of9 (talk) 02:12, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
