Windows Live Photo Gallery includes Flickr!

Description

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.

To get this new version of Photo Gallery, click over to http://get.live.com and get Beta 2 of Windows Live Photo Gallery, and then to http://update.microsoft.com to get the latest version.  Check out the press release here, the Windows Live Photo Gallery blog here, and the Flickr blog here. And don't forget to check out Jeff Sandquist's post about it.

    Perfect, tried it and works well.
    Would be cool if you could manage your Flickr Gallery with it as well, but maybe in the future Smiley

    I love how it also improves the Photo Import Wizard tremendously because the standard one built into Vista was way too simplistic.
