Big news in the photo world: Kodak will close its online photo service on July 2 after a federal bankruptcy judge approved selling the business to Shutterfly for $23.8 million, reports USA Today.
So what does this mean for current Kodak users? In an email to Kodak Gallery users on Monday, Kodak said people who do not want their photos transferred will have to inform Kodak by May 28 by visiting its website and choosing to “opt out” of the migration. After July 2, customers won’t have access to any photos on Kodak Gallery.
Users who wish to continue the services can expect an email from Shutterfly in June with details on the transfer. Photos won’t be lost, however, Kodak warns that it may take months after the transfer for users to see their photos in Shutterfly.
