Official: Kodak Gallery moving to Shutterfly in July In March, Eastman Kodak, the bankrupt photography pioneer, sold their online photo services to Shutterfly for a final price of $23.8 million.
Today, a federal bankruptcy judge has approved the sale, and Kodak will shut down the Kodak Gallery on July 2nd.

Shutterfly offers exactly the same services as Kodak Gallery including free photo-sharing, the ability to get pics printed or put on DVDs, and the ability to have pictures put on mugs, in photobooks and T-shirts.

In an email to current customers, Kodak wrote that users who do not want their photos and accounts transferred over to Shutterfly must opt-out via their site before May 28th. Kodak did warn that the full migration "will be a massive undertaking, involving the movement of billions of photos" and that user's photos may not be fully available until later in the year.

Kodak Gallery has 75 million users.
