You could either do this by creating albums / subalbums or by using tags:

You can define up to 4 sizes that the original image will be resized
to.  For example, my site has 640x640, 1024x1024, 1280x1280 and
original size images available, plus the thumbnails shown in the album
view.  I've uploaded some very large TIFF files (20-30MB IIRC) and it
handled it just fine.

Gallery2 can do it in a couple clicks (view original size image, right
click on image and "save image as..."

That wouldn't be something that was "built in".

IIRC f-spot has the built-in ability to upload images to a gallery2
site as well.
