    Ideally one where it is possible to create "Albums" where images may be uploaded and then a share URL provided for the Album itself...so a bunch of images may be shared through the 1 Album...by providing just 1 URL to the Album...rather than having to give a separate URL for every image uploaded...

    BONUS POINTS: Within the Album...the ability to maximise a picture to its' default resolution would be terrific...rather than small pics only...

    got an account there...had it for yonks...but for the life of me I cannot find a way to share a single URL for the Album...sure you can create different Albums...move images around within the Album..but effed if I can see how to share the album itself...so that anyone following the 1 URL can view everything inside the album...but cannot go "up the tree" searching for other content outside the Album...clue me in if I've got this wrong...

    Surprised no one has mentioned Google photo's, It does everything the OP asks for and is easy to use.

    If it's photography you're after flickr has many pros here particularly if you want to display regarding EXIF data.
    If it's just random images/pics, I much prefer imgur & imgbb for albums, also quick and easy to embed images (via URL) into places like forum posts here.

    Example of imgbb albums here: https://fcarreiro.imgbb.com/albums

    Obv Google & Microsoft are more cloud storage oriented- and provide user level access control (specify by a person's email who can/cant view); where-as the others generally only have public/hidden/private visibility options. All have albums and shareable URL's.
