Need inexpensive or free application to store jpg photos for others to view. Will Dropbox work for me?

I am seeking an application that will enable me to post between one and 50 jpg photos in different remote folders and password protect each folder with a different password to access each folder. I have items I need  to show to others and  am willing naturally to give the person the url of the folder and the password to ONLY look at each photograph. I am not going to be a heavy user  but I want it to be easy for anyone to use and easy for me to maintain. My time is very limited to the point that I must seek advice rather than read specs on many potential applications. Will Dropbox do  what  I am a looking for?

No, Dropbox does not have password protected folders. You can share folders with other Dropbox users though.
I would use shared storage for this, either from a web host, a cloud provider such as Azure or an online tool such as Photobucket that provides this functionality.

Photobucket would be easiest

If you share a link to a file or folder with someone, you can decide who can see the contents of the link, and what they can do with the link. Permissions for shared links are available to Dropbox Professional and Business users.

You can add a password to a shared link. When someone accesses the link, they need the password to see its contents.

1) Sign in to dropbox.com.
2) Click the Share button beside the file name.
3) Click Link settings.
4) Click Only people with the password.
5) Set a password.
6) Click Save settings.

Once saved, you can copy and paste the link to an email or send it directly through Dropbox.

If someone tries to view a shared link with a password, they see the attached page:

Sharing folders with other users (and password for the sharing) secures the folder against other. It is not traditional folder sharing but it works and I use it myself.
