Farewell Yahoo Photos
From a business perspective, the numbers make sense - Yahoo Photos has seen a steady decline in usage while Flickr has grown its share over the past year. Likewise, Yahoo had been offering unlimited photo uploads and storage while Flickr sells the unlimited package in the form of a premium membership for $24.95 a year. (There is a free version of Flickr but it has limitations.)
Yahoo Photos is more of a traditional site where families share photos and visitors can download and print photos. Flickr is more of a social site where amateurs showcase their photography for a larger Web audience that largely just look at pics online and don't print.
Yahoo is expected to offer its users a one-click option of transferring their photos to Flickr or competing sites, such as the popular PhotoBucket site. It will also offer options to transfer photos to other traditional store-and-print sites such as Shutterfly and Snapfish.
