Google Photos is a free app that allows you unlimited storage space, as long as you accept a maximum “high resolution” file size defined by Google. A number of editing tools are available, and photos can be organized into albums. Individual photos or an album of collected photos can be shared or maintained as private.  Instead of sharing photos as attachments in your email, you can provide a link to a large number of photos and even allow recipients to add or comment to a photo album that is maintained in the cloud. Photos can be uploaded to Google Photos through your computer or from a mobile device, such as your smartphone or tablet.
