Yahoo Takes Best of Flickr, Launches Yahoo Photos

Lots of buzz this morning surrounding the launch of Yahoo Photos. While Yahoo already has the excellent Flickr, Yahoo Photos is expected to be a little more consumer-friendly.

Yahoo Photos offers a more visually appealing user welcome page, with a list of the user’s albums and albums of friends on the left, as well as larger images of recent photos. Users can drag and drop multiple photos at a time to rearrange them and easily rename them by pointing and clicking on the old name and typing in a new one.

I guess Yahoo beat Google to the punch. ;-)
