Digital media company Corbis Corp. recently began selling images from the Smithsonian Institute’s collections for editorial and commercial use. Under the licensing agreement, Corbis ultimately will provide hundreds of images from the Smithsonian museums, including archival photos and images of cultural objects, paintings, sculptures, aircraft, and space vehicles. The deal marks the first time the cultural organization is working with a visual content provider to license the breadth and depth of its imagery for editorial and commercial use worldwide. The first of the Smithsonian images recently were added to Corbis.com, with plans to increase the numbers significantly by the end of 2007. Imagery available includes Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager’s Bell X-1; Alexander Graham Bell’s invention, the telephone; and the 45.52-carat Hope Diamond.
