Both have uses and both have drawbacks.  Tinypic's drawback is that it seems to want to bombard users with pop-ups for the privilege of using their hosting.  But using it is very simple when in a pinch.  http://tinypic.com/

Photobucket.com has always been user-friendly and easy to work with, but unlike tinypic.com, Photobucket has a carrot up it's rear pertaining to large images.  Not large filesizes, mind you -- Just large pixel widths.  Photobucket automatically compresses large pictures to a size of no larger than 640x480, even if the filesize itself is not that large.  But the service is free, so who can really complain.

For example, a four color .gif:

Vs. Full size through tinypic:

Now, I suppose my question, if any, is:  Does anyone use a free alternative to photobucket/tinyurl that they're particularly happy with? 

Thanks for the feedback in advance.

I've never heard of tiny pic before, but I've used photobucket for at least 9 years and I've always liked it, if you're putting up a pic for a board it's a great site to use since it does resize automatically.

Ah! Okay, sounds like I'll stick with photobucket for images to display here, and tiny for things to outlink (supposing out-linking is allowed here.)
