iStockphoto images for your cell phone

Online subsidiary of stock-art seller Getty Images is taking its business to consumers.


iStockphoto, an online subsidiary of stock-art seller Getty Images, is taking its business to consumers. The company typically sells images to newspapers, ad agencies and others with a large appetite for photos and illustrations, but on Wednesday it announced a partnership with Amuse Entertainment Group to let ordinary folks download images to use as mobile phone wallpaper.

The companies began a pilot phase of the project in the United Kingdom. Subscribers using the Orange, O2, T-Mobile, 3, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone networks will be able to download images beginning in April.

The pilot could be expanded to the United States and Canada. A second phase will make the image library available worldwide.
