Kodak will finally now take its online photo service – Kodak Gallery – offline July 2nd soon after a federal judge approved the sale of the business to Shutterfly – which is interesting, the only buyer – for $23.8 million. Kodak in an email to Kodak Gallery users 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.” Whereas Shutterfly will contact users in June with the details on the transfer, users can link a Kodak Gallery account with an existing one on Shutterfly, or have a new one on Shutterfly created automatically. The photo giant filed for bankruptcy in January and with its Q1 financial results does not make much win-win situation; the company expects with this, the move will make some good earned cash towards the efforts it is putting in.
