Yahoo has announced that it will be taking Flickr offline tomorrow, July 25, between the hours of 4pm and 10pm Pacific. The downtime is scheduled so that the company can perform some much needed maintenance on the now quickly growing photo sharing site. Yahoo did not specify what maintenance would be performed, but we assume that it has something to do with networking hardware.

Yahoo says that the outage will affect more than just its Flickr property, and any and all sites that use the Flickr API for image sharing will see the images go offline during this time. This means any Flickr image that has been hotlinked on any website will not work for six hours or so. Once the service is back online, everything should return to normal. The service will be unavailable across all platforms including Mobile, Web, Smart TV, and any other device that can access Flickr.
