Not a great service to use day to day, but Windows Live now has an uploader that will go directly to your Facebook. The Windows Live photo gallery download will allow you lots of run of the mill photoshopping such as red eye reducting, cropping, color correction, etc but now they offer a facebook plugin to let you export right to your profile/albums. Kind of makes the Windows people gain a step on the Mac users with the iPhoto plugin.
I’m not big into the Mac vs PC wars anymore since, you know, it’s just a computer, and if one computer really did fit every user’s need and budget, we’d all be using the same thing and computers would be running as efficiently as the US Post Office, but this is a pretty cool thing for me as a PC desktop user.
You can also date and rate and therefore search and sort via the Windows Live photo application. Not a big deal for some, but for others it’s as awesome as hoarding.
If you’re feeling really creative, the new Windows Live MoveMaker can also convert those photos into movies. Not getting into that one, I’d rather just send people links for albums than watch a corny slideshow with some dreary sappy soundtrack.
Cue the Robin Sparkles!
