A day later enhancing, its Image Search and Video search results pages with Getty images added, Yahoo! today enhances the image search feature of its Yahoo! Mail, making it super simple to find and share images with the new "Photos app."

The Photos application can be found in the lower-left side of Yahoo! Mail in the Applications area. And, it aggregates all of the photos in your inbox that you've ever sent or received during the entire life of your email account. You can see thumbnails of all the photos and filter by date, sender, folder and size.

The Photos app defaults to showing the most recent photos first, but to surface your older photos just select "Sort by: Oldest."

When you're ready to share, you can either send your photos as an attachment in Yahoo! Mail, or you can post your photos to Flickr and share from there.

Existing Flickr user, can now easily connect their account with the Yahoo! Mail inbox. This enables them to see their entire Flickr photostream in Yahoo! Mail. And, for those who don't have a Flickr account, Yahoo! will now let you create an account seamlessly from within Yahoo! Mail.
