Yahoo to Shutter Yahoo Photos

Wanting to focus (no pun intended) on Flickr, Yahoo will close its Yahoo Photos site on Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. EDT.  Yahoo said it will automatically move photos to a site of the user's choice, including Flickr, Kodak Gallery, Shutterfly, Snapfish and Photobucket.

Yahoo said it will automatically move users' photos to the photo-sharing sites of their choice. In addition, users can download their original resolution photos to their computers. Users of the New Yahoo Photos can also get an archive CD for US$6.95 plus shipping from Yahoo's partner Englaze.

If users don't tell Yahoo what to do with the photos before the site closes, their photos will be deleted and will no longer be accessible.

Deleted.  On September 20th.  At 6 p.m. EDT.  You have less than a month, so start thinking if you want those photos, and if so, where.
