What is the easiest free photo sharing site these days?

I have a trip report all written but as always the photos are the PITA part of the whole thing. But now that my old standby (photobucket) has kicked the bucket, flickr is photo limited, Google Photos is an unintuitive POS that doesn't seem to allow direct linking.

I'm at the end of my proverbial rope for a free solution. Or if somebody can help me figure out how to deal with Google Photos. The best I can find is like a 4 step process that creates a shareable link, paste that into a 3rd party site, and then put that into the FT attachment window. But that's a pain because then all the images go in line.

On FT you can upload photos
(a) In "Your Control Panel" ---> Pictures & Albums
(b) FT Gallery (top row on menu) https://www.flyertalk.com/g/

Obviously, for sharing on FT, the options provided on this platform are the easiest.
For general sharing, I have had good experience with Irista. It is hosted by Canon. But essentially same deal - Drag-drop photos in browser, create albums, create shared links to albums (with expiration dates).

I started with Picasa, and now use Google Photos to share my travel photos. What kind of help do you need? Not sure what you meant by "all the images go in line".
