BLOGGER's DELIGHT Free Images | John Oxley Library
60 000 HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGES FOR FREE DOWNLOAD | JOHN OXLEY LIBRARY
Immediate access to 60,000 high resolution historic and contemporary Queensland images is now available free from State Library of Queensland. Out-of-copyright and Creative Commons-licenced images can now be directly downloaded through One Search, the library catalogue.
These files are of a much higher quality than the other versions available on the catalogue, which are optimised for viewing online. The high resolution files mean each image can be viewed in great detail and provides opportunities for use in the creation of new works and in many other ways – for websites and blogs, school work, academic research and more.
Everything from early photographs of Brisbane in the 1870s to contemporary photos of the Ekka are included.
To download high resolution images go to One Search, the library catalogue and search for images. When you find the image you want, select the Online option to view and then click on the download icon to download the image. The files are usually more than 25 mB so download time depends on network speed. There's more information about high resolution files on our website to help you consider what is the best type of file for your purpose.
