Getty Images has expanded its partnership with Flickr by launching Flickr Select.

Flickr Select is a curated, rights-managed collection that represents some of the most creative and dynamic professional photos from the Flickr Collection on the Getty Images website.

Flickr Select debuted with almost 6,000 images, and new pictures will be added on a monthly basis. The content within Flickr Select is chosen by Getty Images' editors from images available on Flickr's website.

Getty Images originally launched its partnership with Flickr in March 2009. As one of the biggest names in the photography business, images are sold all over the world by Getty Images for commercial and editorial use.

"What sets Flickr Select apart are one-of-a-kind pictures hand-picked by our editors and art directors that illustrate life as it's being - real moments captured by everyday people," says Andrew Delaney, head of content at Getty Images.
