Getty Images closing Stockxpert this month

Following the launch of Thinkstock  last week StockXpert  has stopped selling credits, accepting new members and uploads on February 2 2010.

On February 11, searching and downloading will be suspended. StockXpert’s subscription operations are being migrated over to Getty Images’ new subscription site Thinkstock, and individual image purchase operations are moving to iStockphoto.

  • Photographers have until February 11 to spend StoxkXpert credits on SXP
  • If you have SXP credits, transfer them to iStockphoto 1 for 1
  • You can still access your account details after February 11

iStock’s COO,  Mr. Kelly Thompson, added the following:

 We believe that we will be better able to serve these clients with a higher level of quality between iStockphoto and Getty Image’s newly announced Thinkstock. If the Stockxpert members had Stockxpert credits, those can be transferred to iStock. Those who had Stockxpert subscriptions can have their subscriptions transferred to Thinkstock.
