    Kodak plans to move more than nine billion photos when it closes its online-photo service and transfers user pics to Shutterfly.

    Kodak Gallery will close on July 2 after a federal bankruptcy judge approved a $23.8 million sale of the business to Shutterfly.

    Shutterfly Inc. emerged last month as the sole bidder for Eastman Kodak Co.'s Kodak Gallery business. The judge approved the sale last week.

    Kodak, which filed for bankruptcy protection in January, is selling it to generate cash and to narrow its focus.

    Shutterfly offers free transfer of the photos from one site to the other explaining that users will get an email in June on how to choose how they want to link the Kodak Gallery account to Shutterfly.

    In an email to Kodak Gallery users sent Monday, the company said people who do not want their photos transferred will have to inform Kodak by May 28.
