AP Images

Product Highlights

AP Images provides unlimited access for research and education to the unparalleled archives of the world’s largest and most respected news gathering organization. The Associated Press has covered society and nature, conflict and culture around the world to create an archive unmatched in depth and scope.

From the Lincoln-Douglas debates to the 2008 election, from the Civil War to the war in Iraq, from the 1930s Dust Bowl to the 21st century melting of polar bear habitat, from the Great Depression to the current economic crisis, from the first photographs to YouTube, the Associated Press has been the primary source witness of record, capturing the full breadth, impact and majesty of history.

Powerful and easy to use, this completely redesigned online search tool is free of viruses, advertising, inappropriate content and outside links. New content is added constantly to create a sensory journey of high-quality news photographs, audio sound bites and crisp graphics spanning over 180 years of history, fully licensed for educational and research use.

AP Images content areas include:

  • AP Photo Archive: With over 12 million images from 1826 to a minute ago, with about new photos added every day. Every photo contains a complete caption and citation information.
  • AP Graphics Database: The Graphics Database consists of over 340,000 professionally-produced maps, graphs, charts, logos, flags, illustrations, and timelines that provide excellent visuals for multi-media presentations. Like the photos, they are available in real-time.
  • AP Audio Database: The Audio Database contains over 36,000 audio clips dating from as far back as the 1920s, including hourly newscasts updated 24/7.
