Picasa vs. Flickr

8 years 9 months ago #52250 by Lisa JK
I want a site to back my pictures up on and display them. I am probably going to end up getting a pro account at one of the two sites. Just looking for some insight as to why you chose what you chose over the alternative... pros/cons using Picasa vs. Flickr?

you really should get a external HD.. i use flickr, while all my pics are on my flickr, they are all on my external HD too...

i've looked at picasa, but really like flickr more... bigger community is the main thing..

Thanks. I don't have many pictures so far. Maybe 2GB? So, I have them backed up to a DVD. I just tried using Picasa's photo managing software and loved it. That's the only reason I was even considering using picasa online.

The issues with DVD's is that they can break and it is very hard to get the images off of them.

I use both of them. I like Picasa better because , 1-it's free and I find it easy to download to other sites from there, 2- You can edit in Picasa or Picnik and both work well. I had a payed account at Flickr, but went to the free one because I don't like their layout as well. And they limit the number of photos in a free account.

More people use Flickr & thus your images will get more exposure. With Picasa, you have to invite people to view your web albums...I have both & rarely use Picasa web albums (I do use their photo editor though). I recently let my Flickr "Pro" paid account lapse & use Zenfolio now, but I still have the free Flickr account. Plus I like Flickr's forum groups, a few of which I moderate

My vote is for Flickr. I like their services, but also several of my family members also use flickr and it's easy to share pictures.

As long as you're paying for premium, a Zenfolio basic account is just $25 per year.

I love Picasa to "share" photos with friends. It is easy to use and allows you to sync photos when you make changes - if you wish.
Flickr has always seemed clunky to navigate s I only have a few shots there.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.
