    Do you have a pro account or do you just use the free account? I'm trying to go back to using Flickr, but I am hesitant because isn't there a limit to how many pictures you can have in your account when you have a free one? And where I take so many pictures... yeah... So what do you all do?

    I like the lay out, interactivity, and openness of flickr. I have some old photobucket accounts too but no one but me can see them. I'm not the best to compare though.

    Pro account.

    I made a Photobucket account to put up pictures of our new place in TN (since my coworker knows my Flickr account and I've not put in my 2 weeks yet) and I despised it. I switched to Picasa, the uploader was AWFUL and after dinking around for 45 min, I gave up on Photobucket.

    I use Picasa because I'm cheap, plus I like the easy uploads. LOL Doesn't Photobucket also downgrade picture quality more than Flickr and Picasa? I seem to remember hearing something to that effect.

    I've been using SmugMug...it's like $4/month (with discount codes), and I LOVE the layout. It's also really easy to pull the image link and post it on forums (my main purpose).

    I used to use the free Flickr accounts but I got really annoyed trying to pull the image link. I haven't used Pro.

    I use pro, I had it free and it didn't give me notice as to when it would expire so I had all my pictures of Rogue on there and had to Pay to get them again. :-/

    I like it, though :p

    Pro here, but only because it "pays off", sorta. I use it as an advertising outlet (like you're not supposed to) as a place to upload my photo's of fabric I've printed with SpoonFlower and connect with other SpoonFlower artists. As a general, just-upload-your-c***, image site, I use Photobucket as it has some of the best space limits. Without a Pro on Flickr, you're limited to 200 photo's, Photobucket gives you a limit based on your file sizes.

    Flickr, hands down. Easy, clean, organized. I don't currently have a Pro account, but it hasn't hurt me yet. I should, though.

    Just FYI...Flickr isn't exactly limited to 200 photos. It only lets you 'see' the last 200 photos in your gallery, but if they are posted on the forums, they stay.

    I use the pro, and have renewed it about 3 years in a row now. I love it, more than I like any other photo type of site.
