They removed the delete button a few years ago.  You have to write contributor support.

You have to contact them via https://esp.gettyimages.com. I think they commit to make changes within 72 hours.

I wiped my eyes in disbelief when I first read this.

"Please note that we will only consider deactivating files for legal or similar justifiable reasons as it provides a negative experience for customers when files are suddenly unavailable for license."

Several sites have restrictions on deletions in their contract.  They don't want to see the kind of hemorrhage iStock had a few years back, when they had a really stupid security breach, and hundreds of photographers deleted their portfolios.

I understand why they do it, but it takes away the right for contributors to manage their own business. It pays to read the contract. If a contributor isnt ok with them taking control of your assets, dont sell there. I doubt I would have even signed up if those were the terms way back when.
