“We’re closing October 18th so we can focus our efforts on Flickr,” states the message at the top of the screen when you login. Good news is, they have a feature to import your pics to Flickr.
We’ll also do our very best to use as much information about your photos as we can, like their titles and descriptions, or whether they belong in an album (which we’ll magically transform into a set on Flickr)
Bad news is that you can’t really sort through them first, ie. import this photo but not that one. I don’t want these all up on Flickr so after weeding out a few manually, I started the import. I don’t know where they will be placed on my Flickr so that’s a little annoying as I don’t want these old ones to bump my latest photos off the top of the pile.
Good thing about doing the import? Flickr is offering 3 months FREE pro status when you move your old Yahoo pics over. Unfortunately I already have pro status so I’m not sure what I’ll get instead, if anything.
Log into your Yahoo Photos account like it was 2001 and get started, you have less than 18 hours to go.
