Flickr has just announced a new interactive feature called Photo Session, which allows users to share their Flickr photostreams and sets in real time with friends—kind of the way Dad used to pull out the slide projector and show the neighbors summer vacation pictures, only digitally. In Photo Session, groups can browse photos and chat together in real-time, on the computer, iPhone, or iPad. They can even interact with the images in cute ways, like doodling on them (see video below). Check out the Flickr Photo Session page for information on how to start a session of your own.
