Yahoo Photos to be shut down

Yahoo has decided to shut down its Yahoo Photos service and instead push flickr, again owned by Yahoo. Makes sense to manage one application instead of two. Also, it was facing heat from picasa, by Google. But instead of automatically moving pictures Yahoo Photos to Flickr, Yahoo is giving an option to move photos to another service of the user's choice. Users have the option to move to some selected photo sites like PhotoBucket, MySpace, Kodak Gallery. Yahoo Photos will shut down on September 20th, 2007. After that, the photos might be deleted (I dont think this is a good idea, better to move them automatically to Flickr).
