Change is an inevitable thing, especially when your parent company Yahoo is bought out by US telecom giant Verizon. That’s why the recent announcement from photo-sharing service Flickr has met with resignation rather than surprise as the once-darling photo repository’s users increasingly express worries about an uncertain future with the service. In an announcement to its community forums, Flickr announced that it would stop all printing services for wall art and would phase out the photo album printing service, gradually transitioning that business over to Blurb: “Today we announced on the Flickr Blog that we are discontinuing Flickr photo books and Flickr wall art. In place of Flickr photo books, we are partnering with Blurb to provide a Flickr integration that offers you more options to customize your creations. Flickr wall art will not be replaced at this time.” Connecting a user’s Flickr account to Blurb will allow the user to browse the account’s Flickr photostream and select photos to be turned into a photo album for possible distribution through Amazon, Ingram, and the Blurb bookstore. Photographers can specify the book’s size, layout, and paper type among other options.
