Good Bye Yahoo Photos… Welcome Flickr

4 05 2007

Finally its an official end to Yahoo photos this May 5th Friday when Yahoo will begin to close down Yahoo Photos, in favor of Flickr, the competing photo sharing site the company bought just over a year ago. Yahoo Photos users will be given the opportunity to move their pictures over to Flickr. But Garlinghouse admits that Flickr isn’t the right sharing site for many users of Yahoo Photos, so users will be given the option to instead move pictures to Shutterfly or the Kodak Gallery. This is a very interesting option from Yahoo for its users, but I dont really think users would opt for Kodak vs Flickr. As with most big Yahoo service changes, this transition will take several months.

If you have shots on Yahoo Photos and need to figure out what to do with them, I do recommend giving Flickr a whirl. It’s a fast and flexible sharing system for which smart people are building some very clever apps and mashups. It’s not based on the standard “album” metaphor that most photo sites use, but when was the last time you put your digital photos in a printed album?

For more on this development, see TechCrunch. For help getting up to speed with Flickr, see the Webware Newbie’s Guide to Flickr.

First of all President Addul Kalam is a good human being. Besides that he is intellectual person & great scientist and more importantly he is not politician.
He can be compared with President Bush at all.
