You need plenty of online storage for that amount of photos.
Google Drive give 15 Gigs of free storage for each Gmail you have.
No one else can beat this (and it's easy to use)

Another easy to use way is Dropbox.
They offer free 2GB but have some 'free' ways to be upgraded by e.g. inviting friends to join or (like me) adding dropbox to a Galaxy S4 and recieve 50GB for free.

Else there are paid plans.

Don't bother with "Free" for that many photos.  I like dropbox because it can work very easily with multiple devices and saves every revision.  If you accidentally delete a photo you can go back to dropbox.com and get it back (and see all revisions.)

Do google, dropbox, flickr each resize photos (bad).  Do they have urls for each photo and a menu that links photos together.

I don't know what the limit is today, but for some time Microsoft's Skydrive gave 25 GB total free storage with each email account.

But as strung says, Flickr has the BEST free offer!

Flickr does not re-size. They have URLS for each photo. You can create sets of photos. See for instance:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/jdstrung/sets/

They do not resize (nor does SkyDrive)

>>Do they have urls for each photo and a menu that links photos together

Generally, you share folders rather than single images. With Flickr, you can share single images, sets or all photos. If you do not wish to share ALL images using Flickr, then choose DO NOT SHARE as default, then share only the photos/sets you want to.
