In its attempt to catch up with market leaders Yahoo! flickr and Google Picasa Web Abumn, Microsoft just launched its completely redesigned photos.live.com.

Here are a few highlighted improvements:

  • Beautiful new views of your photos, including an amazing Slide show view.
  • 25 GB of FREE storage! That’s a ton of pictures of any resolution plus there’s no more 500-per-month limit on photos.
  • The photo-centric What’s New feed on photos.live.com shows you the photos your friends are sharing.
  • Spaces and SkyDrive photos are now combined, so all of your photos are in one place.
  • Better permissions give you greater control over who can see your photos online. 

Even Though the new site is still not perfect as noted by CNET, we certainly welcome the competition that pushes the big players to constantly improve their services.
