Kodak Image Sharing and Storage is Dead: 5 Alternatives

 

As part of Eastman Kodak’s efforts to be a much slimmer business, the imaging and photography company is restructuring, selling its online sharing and storing site, Kodak Gallery, to Shutterfly for $23.8 million in March. Kodak Gallery will close on July 2, and each user’s account will automatically transfer to Shutterfly. Users that do not want to make the transition to Shutterfly can opt out, but they can only do so before the May 28 deadline.

In the transition from Kodak Gallery to Shutterfly, users’ personal photos will be moved to Shutterfly’s website free, but all previous projects such as photo books and calendars need to be completed and purchased by noon on July 2. According to Kodak Gallery’s announcement page, Kodak has not yet determined if shared albums, group albums and sharing sites will be accessible after the site closes, but it will keep its customers updated. Note that if you are a Kodak Gallery Europe customer, these changes will not affect your account.


How to Opt Out


If you wish to opt out of Kodak’s transfer to Shutterfly, follow these simple steps:

  1. Download all of your photos from Kodak Gallery and save them to your computer.
  2. Finish any products and purchase them as soon as possible.
  3. To complete the opt out process, go to the announcement page and click the link that says “Click here to opt out.”
