Every so often something hits at Microsoft that is so cool you find your inbox filling up about it late into the night as we all start playing with it. It happened this week with the integration of Flickr into Windows Live Photo Gallery. With the latest version, available now on Microsoft Update, uploading your photos to Flickr is as easy as clicking the publish button or just right clicking on your photos. The best part; all the tagging you've done in Vista carries through to Flickr so there is no need to have to re-tag your photos!
Stay tuned as later this week you'll see how easy it is to include these Flickr photos on your site using the drag and drop development tool PopFly.
