eBay said it was extending its subscription photo-hosting service Picture Manager through January 2010. In April it had announced that it would discontinue the service in August, and it stopped taking new subscriptions, telling users they would have to use its eBay Picture Services or else move photos to a third-party photo-hosting service.

eBay Canada posted news of Picture Manager's extension on its Announcement Board on Wednesday, and a check of the U.S. FAQs on Picture Manager revealed eBay.com changed the termination date from August 2009 to January 2010.

eBay Canada said it was extending the service "to give sellers more time to transition to another photo hosting option."

The June 7th AuctionBytes-Update newsletter reviewed options for eBay sellers looking for a replacement for Picture Manager in an article found here.
