Which do you prefer? I've always used photobucet for all my pics but my MIL had asked me once before if i was on Flickr.

Any diff between the two or is it a matter of preference?

And i prefer photobucket...for just general web posting at least.

Its more of a personal preference than anything.

Photobucket showed noticeable photo degradation when I was using it. Flickr has issues with color muting.

I went with the muted colors of Flickr over the degradation of Photobucket.

Interesting...i heard it was issues with using their proprietary image editing software, not one or the others actual website. Got any examples?

flickr's looks better from those two. you can tell in flickr's that there is image vignetting, however on the photobucket one you cannot distinctly notice it as vignetting.

I dont think their edited the same...because i see a watermark in the Flikr one too... :shrug:

Regardless, its hard to tell when their way different sizes..i might play around with this later tonight...

they're the same pic, i just added the watermark to it before uploading to flickr this AM. i haven't figured out how to link/post the full reso from flickr, with photobucket you can resize the pics, so that's why they're diff. sizes.

I think i'll end up staying with photobucket, i know that site backwards and forward, lol!
