Yahoo! Photomail : Easy Photo Sharing on Yahoo Mail

By Posted 2005 Updated   Tips

Yahoo introduced the new Yahoo Photomail service in beta to allow more easy sharing of photos in Yahoo mail. But it works only in Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher and requires Windows 2000 or XP.

Send digital photos from your computer, Yahoo! Photos or from Yahoo! Image Search with no need for attachments. Each photo you insert links to a larger version of Yahoo! Photos. That means no big downloads or oversized photos for your friends.

Save the photos you send and receive on Yahoo! Photos. Storage is free and unlimited. Getting started with PhotoMail also installs the Quick Select Tool (1.1MB), making it easier to attach any kind of file.

Yahoo Photomail Gone: Switch to Flickr

Update: Yahoo Photomail is closing down. You might remember that Yahoo! bought a very popular photo sharing service Flickr. This image sharing service is so popular that Yahoo Photos is a parallel competition. Yahoo! has annoounced that PhotoMail is no longer a feature of Yahoo! Mail.

“Were transitioning to our new global photosharing service, Flickr. Part of this transition includes gradually closing Yahoo! Photos and removing PhotoMail from Yahoo! Mail.”

Flickr is an excellent photo sharing tool, and while you try it out check out the Great Flickr tools collection too.

    It’s not *that* hard to attach a photo to an email; this is the accepted practice. Given the way photomail works, your recipient only receives a thumbnail image–the full-size image is only temporarily stored–after 90 days it is GONE–as I’ve just found out. Photomail isn’t worth it–I would NEVER trust my photos to it.

  14. Ian says:

    Send digital photos from your computer, Yahoo! Photos or from Yahoo! Image Search with no need for attachments.

    Each photo you insert links to a larger version of Yahoo! Photos. That means no big downloads or oversized photos for your friends.

    Sure no ‘oversized photos for your friends’ — all they get are thumbnails; if they don’t get to the download link, the photos are erased automatically. THIS IS NOT STANDARD PRACTICE–NO ONE ELSE’S SERVICE WORKS THIS WAY. Instead of having valuable photos sitting in my email box, all I got is a bunch of useless thumbnails!
