Tate Images’ new, improved and updated website

Tate Images’ new website is the first major overhaul of the commercial image licensing site in 14 years, making it accessible not only on desktops, but tablets and mobile phones and aligning it with Tate’s design. New home, search results and artwork preview pages, simple licensing and request options, and increased access to high-resolution images, makes the experience more user friendly. 

Home Page

Our home page now allows clients to browse Tate’s extensive collection through lightboxes, or keyword/subject themes. Clients can browse a selection of the artwork collection, as well as images from Tate Archives (highlighting specific collections), images of all four Galleries, regular Displays (Unilever, Turner Prize etc.) or a changing selection of ideas, themes and subject matter. Many of our digital images of archival, galleries or displays are only visible only on Tate Images. 

Individual Artwork Page

The artworks preview page has also received a significant update. The biggest change is the visibility of the pricing calculator, which is now available to the right of the image without having to log-in or register – calculating the cost and licensing an image from us is easier than ever.

The preview page also includes, where applicable, links to copyright agents or galleries if additional copyright permissions are required, information on the dimensions and quality of the high-resolution digital file available, and links for ordering a personal print through Tate Images’ page on Fine Art America.

Increasing Access

A major goal of the new website was to increase access to the digital images created by Tate’s professional photography team. Upon launch we increased the number of digital images available to license and download directly online from 8,000 to nearly 50,000.

We are continuing to catalogue and upload new images on a weekly basis, so keep checking back especially within the Display section.

For the latest images to be uploaded please see Performances Tate Modern.
