Yahoo! Photos Is Closing - Move Your Photos Stat!

In case you haven't logged into your account recently, I just wanted to let you know that it's official: Yahoo Photos will begin closing later this summer and will completely close this fall. After it closes, Yahoo will delete all photos that you haven't moved somewhere else, so I highly suggest moving your albums and archives to another service, downloading your photos, or buying an archive CD (the last option is apparently only available to users of the New Yahoo Photos service).

Yahoo has been managing both Yahoo Photos and Flickr for some time now, but they have apparently decided to focus all their efforts on Flickr. For tips on dealing with this,

The easiest options are moving your photos to Flickr or Photobucket. For more help and your options for archiving your photos so they are not lost, check out Yahoo's guide.

It is too bad that they are shutting down the site, but they made it very easy to transfer photos to my Kodak gallery account. At least now all my photos are in the same place.

Thanks for the heads up ... I actually have photobucket and love it because it easily converts the pics for me to post on sites. I need to go get my pics off of yahoo now, haha.

so yahoo! is saying that they will give us options later this summer about which service we can move to. does that mean we don't have to think about the move until we get this alleged email they are going to send? i'd much rather do than then worry about doing it myself!

This TOTALLY stinks. I read about it on Yahoo! News or something. Since then I've moved most of my photos to FlipFrames. It's pretty cool. But I had to move them manually since I didn't want them converted over to Flickr. I'm over Flickr. Sobby. Anyway, yeah. Check out my FlipFrames at - and leave me comments on them! I'm obsessed with comments. Ha.

that's really sad. I've been using them like forever. It's ok though, I have all pictures on my hard disk. I just upload to share with friends
