Instant Messaging + Photo Sharing real time

Hi...For quite some time, I used Google's 'Hello' software which allowed IM and photo sharing in real time.
You could be chatting then if you wanted to share a photo, you simply clicked 'Send' and the other person received it on screen within their chat window almost instantly.
Each person, therefore,could be looking at the same photo in real time on both computers.
This feature was also great for explaining things via a photo or screen capture etc.
What I put on my screen was sent immediately to yours and this was far superior to coming out of IM and wasting time with emails and attachments.
In short, an excellent application – one of Google’s finest.
However, since June 08, Google has for some inexplicable reason ditched Hello.
Does anyone know of/recommend any other current software that would do EXACTLY the same as Hello?
Thanks

Skype will do what you want - I use it all the time and have sent and received photos while in video chats.

I have never used Hello - but I don't think Skype is EXACTLY the same.
