I have several hundred photos I'd like to organize and send out for other's viewing. Or send them a link for viewing?? Simple to organize, and to scroll thru. Ideas?

What have you tried so far? Flickr is probably the easiest/most common solution for this.

Flickr. Use the organize tool to sort them into order and albums. It also has half decent privacy controls though your audience will have to sign up if you choose options like friends and/or family.

You can upload them all to Flickr but set them to private. Then you can use a decently ok online organizer and have certain sets set to "public" and send the link around to people who can see them and only them. It's not a bad interface and it's free as long as you don't need stats or anything tricky.

I've also seen people use SmugMug for this. You can password-protect it. I like the interface better than I like Flickr's.

If you already have a gmail account, Google Photos would work great. Plus it has mobile integration, if that's of interest to you.

I've always used Flickr for this and it's worked excellently. You get an entire terabyte for free. Upload them into an album, set it to private, and you can share the link with whomever you would like.
