American Greetings PhotoWorks has announced they are closing the doors (or is it removing the IP addy?) on April 3, 2011. From the announcement, “PhotoWorks is closing Monday, April 4, 2011. Beginning March 7, you will need to transfer your PhotoWorks photos to a free Shutterfly account. You can store, share, and create photo products at Shutterfly.com. PhotoWorks is no longer opening new accounts.”
PhotoWorks suggests you move your photos to Shutterfly which they refer to as, “the leading online photo services company.” I know my sister loves Shutterfly – she sends all of the pictures of her new daughter using Shutterfly. PhotoWorks has setup a transfer service to make moving the photos to Shutterfly easy. And they are offering $30 as a bonus to those who move. If you don’t move your photos by May 2, 2011, they will be deleted permanently.
PhotoWorks was acquired by American Greetings in 2008 for $26.5 million in cash.
