Control is not just the name of Janet Jackson's platinum third album— it's what you want when you're dealing with all the photos that come through your inbox. Today we're announcing a couple great new features in My Photos for Yahoo! Mail that give you some of that control.
Favorites is just what is sounds like: You can now simply mark any photo as a favorite by clicking on the Favorite button in the toolbar above it. All those photos show up in the Favorites tab on the home screen of My Photos, so you can skip right to the best stuff from your years of family and friend pictures:
We've also added a much-requested fast delete feature. Want to get rid of pictures that come from mailing lists or friends that just won't stop sending you not-safe-for-work-or-anywhere-else images? Just leave your mouse over the image for a moment until the red delete icon appears in its top-right corner. You can hide batches of images quickly this way, and if you delete a few from the same sender, we'll even ask if you want to hide all of their photos permanently.
Xoopit's My Photos application continues to be one of Yahoo! Mail's most popular applications. We welcome all the great new applications to Yahoo's platform; together we're all making Yahoo! Mail a better place to stay on the internet.
P.S. If you use Yahoo! Mail and don't yet see My Photos or the other new apps, sign up here.
