For those of you still getting adjusted to the new Yahoo Mail, Yahoo has a new feature for you, and it utilizes Fllickr, another product Yahoo recently redesigned.

The new integration lets users share individual photos or sets right from Flickr from within Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo Mail with Flickr

"Since you’re sending and receiving hundreds of millions of photos in Yahoo! Mail every single day, we wanted to make it an even better experience," Yahoo Mail principal engineer Joe Covalesky says. "Not only is it simple to share as many Flickr photos as you’d like, but they’re displayed in a beautiful way, just like they are on Flickr itself."

"Much like our Dropbox integration, all you have to do is click the arrow next to the paperclip and choose 'Share from Flickr,'" he adds. "Since you’re logged in already, all of your photos are there waiting for you. Not a Flickr user? No problem, you can sign up without leaving Mail."

More on that Dropbox integration here.

As a reminder, Flickr added a terabyte of storage for Flickr users when it launched the redesign, so as Covalesky points out, this would be a good reason to utilize more of that space.

Yahoo says it also working on some other new features for Mail, so if you haven't left in exasperation yet, stay tuned for more.
