i often have trouble viewing phtoos linked from photobucket, i have no idea why
flickr is good for hosting, and actually you get unlimited even without the pro account - if you bother to make a note of the pages you have hosted the older images that you can no longer view past the 200 limit they give your "free account" :devil:
for presentation, i do prefer zenfolio (had problems last time though due to java issues with firefox, not sure if corrected now).. and pbase. flickr is just too.. basic and haphazard.
I use PB only for archive or personal pix. I love flickr because it has different pre-default sizes, easier for upload using windows app, groups for common interest, statistics on how your photos are being viewed, adding fave for other people photos that you like (although I don't use much PB so I can't say if these functions are also available with PB).
Flickr:thumbsup: ...I just like flickr... also when i compare, i find images on flickr look better... And u must be 14 to register for photobucket;(... and i only turn 14 this year... and my birthday not here yet..
