Photo Test

Please excuse this random post as I demonstrate how I think photos look better when linked to Flickr versus uploading to Blogger.

This one is the Blogger, size large.

This one is the Flickr, size medium.


  1. That's so weird ... I was wondering about how to get photos larger on my blog. I feel like there's so much to learn about all of this ... it's hard to keep up!

  2. I did the same test on my blog -- same results.

  3. Tracy - I think it's the fact that Flickr offers the larger size. I'm working on a blog at work and at 500px width,like the medium photos in Flickr, the pictures look great but any smaller - even 400px - and you start to lose quality whether they are on Blogger or Flickr.
