Yahoo is touching up its Flickr photo-sharing service with a new way for friends located in different locations to simultaneously browse through pictures.

The 'Photo Session' feature introduced Wednesday is designed to replicate the experience of leafing through an old-fashioned photo album, even if the people sharing the experience are located thousands of miles apart. Any of Flickr's nearly 170 million users can activate a session by obtaining a special link that can be sent to other invitees. A photo session can be done on iPhones, iPads and personal computers using the Safari, Firefox and Chrome browsers. The feature doesn't currently work on Internet Explorer or Opera browsers.

It's part of a broader effort by Yahoo Inc. to regain some of the ground that it has lost to Facebook.
