Yahoo's Flickr Edges Toward Full-Service Online Photo Shop

Social networking/photo site Flickr is adding a print option, according to internetnews.com. The site reports that the Yahoo service is partnering with yet-to-be-launched Qoop for a print-on-demand option that will translate the digital images to bound books. Books are published as they are sold. Flickr says the site now hosts 19.5 million pictures — Rafat and I are responsible for more than a few — and boasts 775,000 registered users. No breakdown on how many also subscribe to the premium service.
