Yahoo Photos - the end is near

by Paul Jay, CBCNews.ca

Back in June, people with their wedding, vacation and baby pictures stored on Yahoo Photos got a little notification telling them the end was near. Yahoo was shutting down the site in favour of its new acquisition Flickr, and the deadline date to get your photos off was Sept. 20, which is today.

But fear not. Yahoo has extended the deadline to Oct. 18. As the company writes: "Yahoo! Photos is closing on October 18, 2007 so we are no longer accepting new accounts or allowing users to upload photos if you don't already have photos in your account. We've decided to focus all our efforts on Flickr - the award-winning photo sharing community that has been called "completely addictive".

The company lets people with existing accounts on Yahoo transfer their files to Flickr before they go kaput. What you do with your photos after the 18th is up to you. But here are some ideas.
