This is the official PHP SDK is made by Getty Images for developers to construct applications in PHP 5.4 that interact more conveniently with the Getty Images Connect API. Using the API, one may incorporate Getty's digital content, search technology, and metadata into publishing tools, products and services. The API can be used to perform a search for images from extensive creative and editorial catalogs to retrieve image metadata or download files. For a full listing of API behaviors, developers can view the Getty Images API documentation hosted on the Getty GitHub channel.
Mashup contests can be a good way to reveal the variety of applications that are possible when the developer community is provided with a quality API. At the recent BarCamp London 5, Stefan Magdalinski, CTO of MOO.com, ran a weekend-long MOO API hack competition. The MOO service and API let users submit custom designs that can be printed onto products like business cards, sticker books, postcards, etc. These products can then be sold through an online store.
