It’s no secret that images are a driving factor of the entire travel process, from travel inspirations such as researching vacation ideas on Pinterest to posting photos post-trip. I remember as a child flipping through the pages of National Geographic, marveling at beautiful travel images from around the world such as Paris’ Eiffel Tower—a dream that I relived on a recent trip to Paris.  

Compelling, stunning photos serve as the cornerstone of the content we showcase here on the Expedia Viewfinder blog. These images are pertinent in illustrating the stories that each of our dozen bloggers tell. I mean, really, what is a story about Mexico’s white sand beaches or the distinctiveness of Mt. Everest without the photos that showcase these magical spots?

We want to continue to tell these compelling, stunning stories. We want to empower others to tell, them, too. These desires have led to the launch of the next evolution of the Expedia Viewfinder blog: the Expedia Viewfinder Image Library. An industry first, this new online resource will feature more than 40,000 high-resolution travel images for everyone from media outlets to bloggers, journalists and other types of content creators, and more.

Oh, and the best part: The Expedia Viewfinder Image Library is totally free.

An industry first, the new Expedia Viewfinder Image Library will feature more than 40,000 high-resolution travel images for use. 

Travelers have been visiting the Expedia Viewfinder blog over the last year to find tips, recommendations, and resources that inspire them to travel. Our goal with the Expedia Viewfinder Image Library is to extend and amplify the platform and continue to inspire travel for all. The library is compatible with both desktop and mobile devices, allowing users to browse an intuitive, organized collection of images of thousands of the most beautiful places in the world.
