Yahoo announced a new update to Image Search today, which showcases scenic photos of destinations when you search for locations. When you search for a place or country, Yahoo will show Getty Images from that location.

“This partnership allows us to display high-quality photos from award-winning photographers,” says Yahoo Search Product Director Girish Krishnan.

You can hover over photo thumbnails to see details about the photo. Click the upper-left-hand corner to view it in full-screen mode.

This is just the latest in a series of changes Yahoo has been making to its search experience throughout 3013. Back in January, Yahoo added Creative Commons Flickr results. In June, Yahoo launched a big redesign of its main web search results pages.

The new travel photos feature is only available in the U.S.

    Yahoo’s changes to image search this year have been very impressive. Hope they roll out this feature to the global audience soon.
