June 14, 2007 – Yahoo! Photos members will now have the option to begin transferring their photos to Flickr, according to an announcement posted on the Yahoo! company blog yesterday. The company is asking its members to move their photos to Flickr or another photo-sharing site by Sept. 20, when the site will shut down. 

Last month, Yahoo! announced it is closing Yahoo! Photos in lieu of the more profitable Flickr. The company has added links to the site to allow users to easily transfer their photos to Flickr or other sites such as Shutterfly, Kodak EasyShare Gallery, Snapfish, or Photobucket.

"We’re doing our best to make this transition as smooth and convenient as possible, and beginning today you will be able to move your albums and photos to Flickr," said Yahoo! Photos and Flickr Senior Product Manager Tim Anderson in a blog post. "The next time you log in to Yahoo! Photos, you’ll see your options for moving your entire collection with just one click."

Yahoo also announced that members of the Yahoo! Photos staff will be moving over to Flickr.
