Yahoo simplifies photosharing with PhotoMail

Posted on Thursday, May 26 2005 @ 17:35 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Yahoo rolled out a new service called PhotoMail, enabling its users to send 300 digital photographs per e-mail and store an unlimited amount of digital photographs on the internet. Additionally users can also edit the pictures by adding borders and captions, rotate them or adjust the size and quality of the image.

Andy Spillane, vice president of Yahoo Mail, said photo sharing is an enormous popular activity but many users deem it too complicated. Yahoo tries to change this with its new PhotoMail service.

PhotoMail users can simply drag pictures into the body of the e-mail, just like dragging files into a folder on your desktop. The images in PhotoMail e-mails are thumbnails, users can see larger images of the picture by clicking on the image. Some screenshots of the service can be seen at CNET.

Yahoo further added its e-mail service is now available in six more languages and localized sites are now also available for Poland, Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia.
