Hi
Does anyone regulary use either Photobucket or Flickr to upload images.
Im currently using photbucket and am curious re using other sites.
I own a Nokia N70 and understand there is some connection with Nokias LifeBlog and Flickr. have looked at Flickr and it requires you to get a Yahoo ID.
Any comments, for or against.
Are they different applications altogether?

I'm a flickr boy, yahoo ID thing takes five minutes. Flickr has cool features that I like - I use it mainly for my blog.

Photobucket automatically downgrades the pic to under 1MB.
Does Flickr do this?
From what i can gather Flickr is 'Blog based'?
Is this right?
I need to think about what im using these sites for.
Mainly i just want to post pics. But the idea (Flickr) about leaving comments about the pics is good.
But i dont think i have time to 'Blog'.....

i liked photobucket, because it gives the links to the picture in a few different formats, so i just have to copy and paste onto the forums without putting in tags. the problem though it that it is pretty savage with the resizing, making pictures tiny.

photobucket for me, never heard of anything else, and well, photobucket does all i need too, its resizing is pretty bad i guess, but then again i dont want to upload anything that huge anyway.

your nokia connects to flickr, but wouldn't you be paying through the roof and waiting for years for data transfer to go through?
