Stock images in your Dropbox

If you use Getty Images' iStock royalty-free stock media, the files you licence can now be automatically synced with your Dropbox account.

New integration between popular file-synchronisation service Dropbox and  means that newly licensed iStock media can be automatically appear in your Dropbox.

iStock provides crowdsourced images, videos and audio clips. Customers can either purchase subscriptions that allow for a certain number of downloads per month, or packs of 'credits' that can be applied to individual items.

The companies suggest the new integration between the two services will be especially useful for workgroups, and automated syncing of image lightboxes will be added soon.

"As our customers increasingly move from screen to screen, creating and consuming content at a faster pace than ever before, it's never been more important to surface the content they need most on whatever device they're using," said Grant Farhall, senior director of product/e-commerce at iStock.  

"By integrating Dropbox directly into iStock, our customers can enjoy the unbeatable creative content they can't find anywhere else, now automatically downloaded to their Dropbox folder every time they license an image."

To mark the integration, new and renewing iStock Essentials or Signature subscribers get a free three-month trial of Dropbox Pro. iStock TeamShare subscribers get a trial of Dropbox for Business instead.

One thing to bear in mind is that everything stored in a Dropbox Basic or Pro account counts towards its storage quota, even if it is being shared from a Dropbox for Business account.
