For those who don't get hotmail updates, here is the announcement I received of a feature that they will be adding soon. Don't ask me what "soon" means. I'm hoping this means simple and easy transfer of photo files will now be a reality.

We've built a way to send up to 10 GB of content via a single message—up to 200 photos or 200 files of up to 50 MB in size each. When you hit send, we deliver a nicely formatted email with a link to where the photos are stored on your password-protected Windows Live™ SkyDrive™. Recipients can then easily view your photos as a slide show or download them to their computer.
