As result of Partner program, IS mirrors my images to Thinkstock and GI as you know. I can see my Thinkstock portfolio but GI. The only way to see some of my photos is to google my name and go to GI link. When i do that i get this message on GI "Sorry, we are not able to license media #526504887 due to country, company and/or publication restrictions." and when i click to more from this artist link i get zero results.

Is there a way to see my portfolio on GettyImages?

Typically, it is either Thinkstock or the GI page, not both. Non-exclusive files get mirrored to Thinkstock, selected exclusive files get mirrored to Getty. As a non-exclusive you should not expect your files to be found on the GI page.

However, GI also has an interface for large buyers (it keeps changing names, not sure if it's Getty Connect or Getty 360 or Getty Whatever these days), so those buyers can pick images from all sites within the Getty family from a single interface; those will be reported as GI Sales for non-exclusive contributors. But as long as you don't have access to that platform, you shouldn't be able to license your images that way.

I see. Thanks Michael

What Michael said, but it's apparently now called GettyPlus.

BTW, in some cases these G+ files can be found via a Google search, whereby you can click on the link and get to the file with the 'Not available' message, but no link from there to the file on iStock.
I think that's insane; others disagree, but wouldn't explain why.
