AP Content API

The AP Content API allows you to search and download content using your own editorial tools, without having to visit AP portals, such as apimages.com.

AP Images

The API provides access to AP-owned, member-owned and third-party images, including the full AP Images archive and the GraphicsBank collection.With millions of images dating back more than 100 years, AP Images is one of the world’s largest collections of historical and contemporary imagery. The AP Images collection is constantly updated and includes entertainment, fashion, news and sports coverage from The Associated Press and a variety of content partners.

The API provides access to AP-owned, member-owned and third-party photos, including the full archive.

Access the API

Work with your own editorial system. Your editors search and download AP Images content using your own editorial tools:

  1. Run a search.
    When an editor performs a search in your editorial system, your custom program searches the AP Images collection and displays search results along with key metadata. Image pricing is available upon request.
  2. Pick a result to view metadata.
    When an editor selects a search result, your custom program retrieves full content metadata (optionally, with pricing) from the AP Content API system.
  3. Download content.
    When an editor wants to download an image, your custom program downloads the requested content file from the AP Content API system.
  4. Review your account information.
    When an editor wants to check how many downloads available for your plan have already been used or download your order history, your custom program retrieves your plan and usage information or order history from AP Content API.
