LEAKS: Yahoo Photos Closes September 20th

Yahoo Photos will close on September 20th, according to this internal Target newsletter. Users will have until that date to move their online scrapbooks to a partner site, like Flickr, Shutterfly, Kodak Gallery, Snapfish, Photobucket

All you have to do is select a partner site and Yahoo will migrate the photos for you. No need to download and upload.

The changeover was leaked on May 3rd, and officially announced on May 4th, but all previous articles could only specify “the fall” as the cutoff period.

After September 20th, all remaining albums on Yahoo Photos will be burned in a virtual bonfire in Second Life. Ok, we made that part up, but there’s a good chance they’ll be gone forever, so get transferring! — BEN POPKEN
