If you use or have used Batch on your iPhone, you likely received an e-mail yesterday announcing the app's demise. As of yesterday, the app is no longer available. And after Thursday, November 8, all of your photos on Batch will be deleted. The e-mail outlines the three-step process needed to rescue your photos. In case you missed the e-mail from Batch yesterday, here's how you get your Batch photos before they're gone.

1. Visit the Batch Web site from your computer.

2. Log in using your Facebook account.
