    Flickr vs. Picasa

    Hi,

    I'm trying to decide which photo-sharing program to use--Picasa or Flickr--and thought I'd share my thoughts in the hope this will spur a conversation that will guide my decision.

    On one hand, Picasa is free (Flickr costs $25/year if you want more than three sets), is made/owned by Google rather than Yahoo, is more user-friendly, allows for tags that contain spaces, and its privacy controls are easier to configure. Also, Picasa's embedded slideshow can be resized and need not start automatically.

    On the other hand, you can change the speed in Flickr's embedded slideshow, which is sleeker than Picasa's.

    In sum, Picasa seems superior.

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    Picasa has other good features, too, such as its ability to display all kinds of files including RAW files from digital cameras if you use those.

    It depends on YOUR requirements. You did not give any indication that you'd investigated others. So, in addition to Picasa & Flickr, there's Snapfish, Shutterfly, KODAK Gallery & many others. This Photo Sharing Service Reviews may also be of interest.
