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.

      The Tagging is impressive but it would be great if you had a choice to use different items of the Vista metadata to map to different items in Flickr. For example it would be nice if you could choose to use the Title Metadata for the Flickr Title instead of the file name.

      WOuld also be nice if WLPG had some sort of way of marking that a photo had been uploaded to flickr already.

      Nice Vid
