External Photo Albums (Picassa/Flickr)
Integrate with Flickr and Picassa to be able to post MU photo albums sourced from picassa or flickr. I usually just upload to one of those services and then post a link in the forum or MU comments. Kind of a drag to find that later...
I agree that Flickr would be great
It's ridiculous not to do this. For a photography meet up we need this link to make it worthwhile for our members and prevent them from going to other sites Please do this!!!!!

Sounds very straightforward, surprised that it isn't already an option.
Would be great .... !

I run a photography group in the UK and my members have real concerns about uploading images when they would rather link to their own Flickr / Picassa or other accounts to preserve their IPR and save a lot of time.
It can be done very easily (see http://photography-on-the.net/forum/ for thousands of examples where pro and amateur photographers link to their images). The images appear in-line with that Forum's content keeping eyeballs on the original website.
If adopted by Meetup this would keep users on the www.meetup.com site itself which might otherwise be a concern.
I am certain this would dramatically increase the richness of the the photo content at Meetup and reduce churn to other similar services (or FB and Google+ themselves).
I hope you can do this.

I suggest adding Facebook Albums as well
Please!! Super helpful, thank you!
This would really be useful for the MANY photography groups hosted on Meetup.
This would be good for photographers.

I agree that doing things once is always nice.
just one album whatever is the consensus of the photogs would be very convenient to just have to login to one area where you would be able to download a hi res 8x10 (for portfolio).
