Once you have a photo-sharing session in progress, you and your contact can both add photos to the Share Photos side panel.
You can’t share photos while conversing with Windows Live™ Messenger contacts; the feature isn’t supported.
This page describes only one of the many ways you can add photos. For more ideas, see the Adding and Removing Shared Photos tutorial.
Open Window Explorer, and locate the photo you want to share.
Tip: If you select Thumbnails from the View menu in Windows Explorer, it displays a thumbnail view of each file in the current folder, making it easier for you to find the photo you want.
Drag the photo you want to share over the Shared Photos side panel of your IM window, and drop it there.
Both you and your contact see the photo at the same time.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 to add more photos.
Tip: You can add multiple photos from a particular folder at the same time by selecting the photos and dragging and dropping them onto the Share Photos side panel together.
A thumbnail image of each shared photo appears under the main photo. A selection bar appears under the selected thumbnail. A slide bar appears under the thumbnails.
You can change your view in the Share Photos side panel to see a different image or to see the same image your contact is viewing.
