As Larry mentions in his post, the latest beta of Windows Live Photo Gallery is out.
After installing it, the first feature I tried out is the new "upload to Flickr". I am a Flickr Pro user: the ability to see and comment on my friend's photos is like attending slide-show evenings from the comfort of your own computer.
Windows Vista added support for tagging photos as another mechanism for organising your digital memories. Windows Live Photo Gallery reflects these tags when upload into Flickr. Now as a Flickr user, this was a wow! moment.
Watch and listen to my (first) screencast.
