Deal: Snag the Complete Nat Geo Digital Collection and 200K Photos for $25


If you’re constantly on the prowl for new sources of photographic inspiration, there’s a pretty sweet deal going on over at National Geographic. The magazine has long been praised for its focus on delivering high quality photography showing all kinds of subjects in all kinds of locations around the world, and now it’s offering its complete collection of issues between 1888 and 2011 for just $25. The set of 7 DVDs normally costs $80, so it’s a savings of almost 70%.


The digital collection spans 123 years, 1,400 issues, 8,000 articles, and — most importantly for many of you — 200,000 photographs. These include some of the most iconic photographs of our time, including Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl photo, which is featured prominently on the box (shown above).


Although you’ll miss out on having a tangible photo print in your hands, owning the digital collection does have its benefits: you’ll be able to do searches on photographs and even browse for them based on location through a special visual geographic search tool.


The digital collection is available for both Windows and Mac users, and can be purchased over in the National Geographic store. No word on how long the $25 pricing will last for.
