Default Photo Sharing Program Recommendation

I have several hundred photos of my son's youth sports team dating back 8-9 years... I am looking for a recommendation for a Program that I could upload the photos to so parents would be able to log in and view the pictures. I would also like the ability for those parents to also, print and/or buy the pictures (not from me from the program or website) if possible. I am looking for 1st - Ease of Use, 2nd Security (Secure log in for Parents). If those parents can also log in and add their own pictures to the album - so they can be shared/viewed by all.. that would be a GREAT!

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

I have been using Smugmug.com for many years for the same purpose. They allow public, private and unlisted galleries as well as printing services. You can generate upload links to share with parents to allow them to upload their own photos and several other security features I have never used. Storage is unlimited for a yearly subscription. Might be something close to what you're looking for.

Google drive works well, you upload to the cloud and anyone you let can view them. Think you get 15 Gigs for free.

Another vote for Google...photos.google.com
Quite a few years ago Google bought a company called Picasa....integrated some of that technology. Picasa was a really cool free photo organizer software.

Photos.google.com is free, included in your Google account already. If you're an Android phone user all your smart phone pics automatically get backed up there (assuming you have that turned on).

Thank you for the suggestions so far!! I will look into each further... We had Picasa for years on our PC - and we were looking for whatever happened to the program (I am not the tech-savant I need to be! ha) - now that i know Google is "using" that platform - that might be my best option - I will most definitely check out SmugMug as well!

You can create an album in Google Photos and grant sharing permissions just for that album. Works slick, I use it for a variety of projects where I want only certain people to view/add certain sets of photos, such as construction sites, product design, store displays, etc.

Of course, there's always the dreaded Facebook solution for groups, that's another very common solution for this sort of thing as well.

Thank you again.. I wanted to avoid FaceBook for the simple reason not all members of the group are on it - neither am I... but everyone's help is MUCH appreciated
