Another user and I are on the same LAN and often wish to send each other URLs or several photos, or such. Is there a program or a feature that would allow us to communicate simply? like a local PC-to-PC IM?

Windows 7 (PC 1) to Windows XP (PC 2).

LAN Chat is a LAN based IM client, very simple and private to a local network

If you were logged in to the same server you could use talk. Otherwise I generally us AIM (or another IM client). A local implementation would be nice but then it depends on having that local connection. AIM (or another IM client) will work locally and remotely.
