When images are sent Hello optimizes them for quick transmission.Received images are stored in the My Pictures folder by default,but you can change this if you want.You can drag and drop images from any folder with windows explore and Picassa albums.While you chat you can also see which photo your friend is currently viewing,thanks to a small pop up window above the filmstrip on the right.
BloggerBot is a kind of Gateway by which images with captions can be post directly on your Blogger Blog.Clock BloggerBot in your friends list and you will reach the Blogger Home page.So you can log in your Blogger blog and manage your photos directly.
