Kodak agrees to sell online gallery to Shutterfly

(AP) -- Eastman Kodak Co. said Thursday it plans to sell its online photo service business to online photo publishing company Shutterfly Inc. for $23.8 million.

The company said Kodak Gallery has more than 75 million users. Kodak customers who don't want their photos transferred to Shutterfly can opt out and get their photos through free downloads or buying DVDs from Kodak Gallery.

Shutterfly stock, which fell 45 cents to close Thursday at $26.91, climbed $3.79, or 14.1 percent, to $30.70 in aftermarket trading following the announcement.
