Kodak Gallery users, prepare to get better acquainted with Shutterfly. The Eastman Kodak company will probably be selling its online photo business Kodak Gallery to Shutterfly, a company that offers a similar suite of photo services including storage of pictures, sharing of pictures and, for you luddites, the printing of pictures, too. The $23.8-million deal was announced back in March, but because Kodak is currently in bankruptcy, other...

This week's flashy redesign of Flickr shifts the Yahoo-owned photo-sharing website away from subscription revenue and more toward ad revenue. But Yahoo also could look to monetize another Flickr feature: printing hard copies of photos. Flickr reached a deal with printing service Snapfish in 2009 that made it easy for users to order photos on paper and other items such as mugs and clothing. Several other services use Flickr's data stream for free to make prints, though only Snapfish is integrated into the website.

If you're one of the nearly 70 million people who subscribed to the Kodak Gallery photo-sharing site, here's some bad news: it has officially closed. But no worries. Those cherished sets of family photos you uploaded to the site are safe, and you will be able to get them — eventually. Your photos are among the 5 billion snapshots making the journey to the Shutterfly site starting this week from the Kodak site, which was permanently closed Monday. The big question is when do you get to see them again.

One of the big battles of the dot-com era centered on a space where new media converged with old: printing pictures taken with digital cameras. Shutterfly, Snapfish and Ofoto emerged as the pioneers of, and key rivals in, the fast-growing market that enabled consumers to store their photos online and then order prints from home computers. But 10 years later, the rivals find a changing landscape in which customers are looking beyond 4x6 prints for other ways to share their photos.

Online photo site Shutterfly Inc. said Monday that Chairman Jim Clark, co-founder of Web pioneer Netscape Communications, had resigned, saying securities regulations had "gone too far." In a letter to management released in a regulatory filing, the Silicon Valley veteran said he was resigning from the board both because the company had matured from a technology developer into a manufacturer and because of constraints imposed on major shareholders by the Sarbanes-Oxley securities law.

Online photo service Shutterfly Inc. said it planned to open a manufacturing facility in Charlotte, N.C., that would cut down on the time it takes to ship prints and photo gifts to the East Coast. "As you think about where our customers are in the U.S., approximately 60% are east of the Mississippi River," said Chief Executive Jeff Housenbold. Redwood City, Calif.-based Shutterfly prints digital photos and makes books, calendars, cards and other photo-bearing gifts at a plant in Hayward, Calif.

Shutterfly Inc.'s pending initial public stock offering provides the company with an opportunity to address some of the challenges it faces to remain one of the top online photography websites. Those challenges include increasing competition and customers' growing preference for a service that Shutterfly doesn't provide: picking up pictures they ordered online at their local retail store, which is faster than waiting for prints in the mail.

If you tried to get your photos on the Kodak Gallery site recently, you may have noticed that the doors are locked and the lights are out there. Some of our readers have asked about how to find their photos, now that they're moving to Shutterfly. Essentially, if you had an account on Kodak Gallery, your photos are in transit. Members who used the service most will get priority in the move, with their photos landing in the next few weeks. Photos of members who used the service less will take a few months to move, Shutterfly said.

We snap photos these days without a thought and accumulate several hundred images in a flash, so to speak. And then we face the constant challenge of moving them from one device to another and making sure there's enough storage and stability to keep them safe for years to come. Well, Shutterfly faces that challenge Monday -- but on an exponentially more massive scale. Massive, as in 5 billion images -- or 10 years' worth of Kodak customers' memories. Shutterfly is transferring the photo files from Kodak Gallery , which is closing down as of July 2. In place of the single-terabyte hard drives we might use for our personal photo collections, "Think of a room filled with 10,000 hard drives," said Geoffrey Weber, Shutterfly's chief information officer.

We've all stood in front of the rows of too-generic, over-syrupy, more-a-cough-than-a-chuckle or ethnically tone-deaf selection of greeting cards available at stores. In an effort to get personal, Hallmark and Shutterfly are teaming up to offer more than 1,000 exclusive Hallmark-designed customizable cards. They will be available on Shutterfly's new personalized greeting card site, Treat , which features integrated scheduling and reminders directly connected with Facebook. "The millions of consumers who already store photos on Shutterfly will now have easy access to Hallmark's creative and editorial expertise as they create their own individualized cards through a quality experience on Shutterfly," Rob Bensman, Hallmark vice president of strategic alliances, said in a news release . This fall, Shutterfly.com and tinyprints.com will offer a collection of Hallmark holiday designs, according to the release.
