I like Flickr more. No offense to Photobucket fans but it's hard to use (for me) and upload speed is unforgiveably slow.

Portfolio? Of your photography right. No do's or don'ts what.. Just post whatever you think you want to post! Then if it's horrible people will tell you so by not viewing it. =D

personally i don't use both.. but if i had to choose it'd be flickr for it's speed... and since it's a portfolio.. the amount of traffic it gets will have lots of people commenting on ur photos so u know how well u've done...

never used photobucket much.. but i find it a tad slow in loading....

I have photobucket, Flickr, webshots, yahoo album, sony image station, zoto, fotopic accounts, all are just albums only

if you intend to have portfolio plus some text page, best is to use multiply.

I think pbase is best of the beasts in terms of showing a portfolio. You can have high degree of customization.

No $, go for Mulitply. But in order for others to see, they got to register thou. Nonetheless, Flickr for me. Flickr also can be FOC but only 3 photoset and limited uploading ;)

I hotlink my photos from photobucket in multiply, btw, if don't feel comfortable to let other see some of your works, better don't post.

Unlimited uploading.

But people can only view latest 200 you have uploaded. You also only can view latest 200. If you delete, then the older photos will mysteriously appear again. =D
