NEW YORK CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Slidely, the Creative Media Platform where more than 110M people worldwide have created and discovered creative content, has announced that it is collaborating with Getty Images to provide use of Getty Images content to Slidely users. Since launch, over eight billion photos have been viewed via Slidely applications using content from Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Flickr and Google Images, as well as users’ own devices.
