A Flickrpro account gives you unlimited upload of photographs of any size. You can also create unlimited sets & collections.

Flickr has an uploading software that you can use to easily upload the photos you take and arrange them into sets, adding tags with the uploader is easy as well.

When your photos are uploaded you can choose the sizes you want. For e.g the original image size is 1024 x 768, when you click on all sizes you can choose other sizes ranging from square/thumbnail/small/medium/original size. This is particularly useful when you are using the photos for blogging or yr own websites.

Flickr has lots of groups. e.g A star wars group, where everyone post their star wars photos inside to share. Groups also have contests and discussion threads going on.

You can meet lots of helpful folks on flickr to learn more about photography as well. You can add them as contacts and whenever they upload a new photo, it will appear on your home stream. Like a particular photograph? favourite it/ put a note on it or leave a comment.

The home screen will also give you updates on your groups, or comment replies. Other things you can do includes checking the stats of your photographs such as, which photo you took are most viewed and favorite by other ppl and where were the ppl referred from.

I can't speak for a photobucket pro account, since I dont have it. But one thing that I have always like about photobucket is that they give you the html code of the photo, which makes it easy to just copy and paste the code to a msg board.

hehe, ok hopefully now, it's a little more helpful for you emoticon
