    Just create an account in flickr and upload your photo. If you want a blog, create an account in the blogger or whatever blogspot website and start uploading entries and photos.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Flickr is free and easy. However you can only upload 300mb of photos per month and a maximum of 200 photos regardless. By the time you got to 200, You can upgrade your account to a PRO account which only costs $20 a year.

    Norman ar, purely because of the community.
    They got very big group of users. you go to the 'Group' search, you can find alot of other group ( For me its the beginner ones that attract me cause see them take the picture as newbie is super inspiring)
    Then very me, i quite software idiot one... and i find that its easy to use.
    For pricing wise, interms of subscription, all give the same unlimited at the end of the day and charges are around the same.
    For free usage, picasa give more space then flickr.

    Login wise, i just use my google gmail account to login. then can also create a blog. in Flickr, it gives you a share link to directly post to your blog with a short description. So i thought it was nice to have such a function. the blog is link to blogspot de.

    Hope this help.

    You want to use it to store photos or to showcase?

    My advice is if you really want to show your best photos, Flickr is not the best way to do it. A personalised website is best, you can google a bit to find out more about how to do it, loads of resources and advice on the internet.

    If you're lazy, you can always use Zenfolio, Pbase, Smugmug, etc, which are more catered to "showcase portfolio". Flickr is more of a social-cum-photo-sharing site, honestly.

    you will use flickr to be part of a community, think of it as FB for photography.
    you will use your personal website for a full-on portfolio. followers on flickr can easily be re-directed to your personal website should they want to view it.

    cheers!
