Ultimately hosting your own or paying money is only way to be sure. Too bad Google photos doesn't allow very good sharing of them
Even paid for hosting sites makes changes. Microsoft Onedrive (i have the premium version paid through office 365) removed the ability to do static image links in May.
And if you pay for a bare bones web hosting service they will either charge extra or cap you if your hit a bandwidth limit.
