When Yahoo acquired Flickr in March of 2005 there was no doubt that it was a great move, but there was the question of what would happen to their own Yahoo Photos service. Now Yahoo has announced that they will be shutting down Yahoo Photos effective September 20th. If you still have photos in Yahoo Photos, they are offering a way to move them over to a variety of other services including Flickr and Photobucket.

The shut down will allow Yahoo to focus all of their resources on Flickr which is easily one of their hottest properties right now.
