New Getty Images Website

Just got an email. Looks like getty images is getting a brand new site.

Now sure when it's going live, but check out the preview below.

New Getty Images

Overall the site is a success. The AJAX search box on homepage is a bit forced, but forgiveably functional. The larger images and new width are more suitable to today's landscape. The new search interface actually seems to take some cues from istockphoto (which getty acquired last year).

I'm not sure it will dramatically improve my user experience, but I think it's a solid iterative upgrade. Design is freshened up and there are few usability tweaks.

I give it a 8/10 ;-)
