Dear valued Kodak Gallery member:
I have some very important news regarding your Kodak Gallery account and images. You may have heard that we recently entered into a process to sell Kodak Gallery as part of Kodak's broader restructuring efforts. I am writing today to let you know that we have closed on a buyer: a public company called Shutterfly.
Although I am sad to announce that our Kodak-branded service will be closing on July 2 as a result of this sale, I am very pleased to announce that we have found a strong partner in Shutterfly. They offer a market leading user experience that mirrors ours in many ways, and many of the services and products that you enjoy today on Kodak Gallery can also be found at Their services include free, unlimited storage and a 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee. Working together, we will securely transfer your account photos to them free of charge. We are absolutely committed to making this transition as smooth and easy as possible.
For well over a decade, Kodak Gallery has operated with a mission to make it easier for people around the world to celebrate their Kodak moments through photo-sharing, photo-product creation, and more recently, innovative new mobile photo experiences. Now, it is our top priority to ensure that your images and confidential information are kept private and secure as they move from our site to Shutterfly. And of course, although Kodak Gallery is transitioning, the Kodak brand you love and trust remains. Please visit for more information about our other great products and services that are still available to help you with your personal imaging needs.
In the page below you will find more information such as:
  • More information about Shutterfly
  • Detailed next steps, including how to "opt-out" if you do not want your account and images to migrate over to Shutterfly (you will have until May 28 to opt-out)
  • FAQs about your photos and projects: Your Kodak Gallery projects (photo books, calendars, etc.) will not be migrated so please complete any projects and place any orders before noon, PST on July 2, 2012
  • Links to customer service help and support
  • What this means for you

    In the transition of your photos from Kodak Gallery to Shutterfly, all of your personal photos will be moved to the Shutterfly website. Unfortunately, none of your projects (Photo Books, Calendars, etc.) or Group Albums will be moved—you will need to complete and purchase any projects (also consider re-purchasing previous projects as backup) before noon, PST on July 2, 2012. We thank you for your patience as we move your photos, and we will ensure that every single image is transitioned safely and securely.
    Even though Kodak Gallery is closing, Kodak, the brand you love and trust endures. You may visit for information on their imaging products and services.
    And finally, please make sure you update your email address with so we can keep you updated throughout this process.

    What happens next?


    Since your photos and projects will only be available for a limited time, please begin wrapping up any unfinished projects as well as re-purchasing any previous projects that you want to keep for backup. Please remember, your photos and projects will be available at until noon, PST on July 2, 2012, and after that you will no longer be able to access anything on


    Shutterfly will email you with simple instructions for choosing how you want your Kodak Gallery account linked to Shutterfly.


    Five billion photos will be moved from Kodak Gallery to Shutterfly. Shutterfly will email you about the status of your photos throughout the process to keep you updated. It will be secure and smooth but will take some time, and your patience is appreciated.
    Shutterfly is a leading online photo services and social expression company that offers quality products and services to help you create photo books, cards, personal websites and more. They offer free, unlimited, full-resolution picture storage and will never delete your photos. You can also enjoy the convenience of picking up your prints at Target, CVS and Walgreens.
We will constantly be updating this page so please check back here if you have any questions.
Finally, on behalf of all of the employees at Kodak Gallery, I would like to express our most sincere thanks for having been given the opportunity to be a part of your Kodak Moments and to serve you all these years. Although businesses shift and change—memories last forever. Thanks again.
Best regards,
Victor Cho
