On July 2, 2012, Kodak Gallery is shutting its doors. Unless you’ve been under a rock you’ve probably heard the news that Kodak sold the business to Shutterfly. While I never worked on the Gallery while employed with Kodak, I was a customer for a number of years.
Prior to Facebook, Kodak EasyShare software made it easy to upload pictures to the Gallery and share them with friends or easily order pictures. As mentioned in my previous post, I’ve used Gallery Albums for years to showcase products I’m selling. Now I need to decide whether to continue using Shutterfly to host my pictures or some other photo site.
Here’s a really wonderful Kodak Gallery commercial that I only recently saw. It promises such hope for the future. While I’d like to think the Gallery will be missed by many, I know there are many other similar sites to take its place.
***** RIP Kodak Gallery *****
