Where can you find pictures showing the changing of brakes on a 2004 Ford Expedition?

There may be pictures in the Chilton's manual, but they are not really necessary. Ford brakes are essentially all the same. The Expedition brakes are nearly identical to those on the Explorer. There are two bolts on the back side of the caliper. Loosen these. Remove the rear of these and flip the caliper forward. If you cannot flip it forward, remove both and lift the caliper free. Remove the inner and outer pads, and compress the caliper. **This is important** if the caliper has a square indentation on the inside of the cup, it is likely a turn in type. You will need a special tool for this (inexpensive). If you attempt to compress a turn in type caliper, you will damage the caliper and need to replace it (expensive). Once the caliper is compressed, replace the old pads with new. They are marked so this is easy. Replace the caliper on the bracket over the rotor and replace the two bolts. If the rotor is gouged, you may want to have them turned before you remount the caliper. If you are heavy on the brakes, you might want to replace the rotors. Have them gauged to determine if they need to be replaced. Most auto parts stores will do this for you for free.
