    If you’re having trouble uploading a particular image to your group’s album, our Help Center article has some troubleshooting tips.

    Sort your photo albums

    Use the dropdown menu to sort by:

    • Recent activity – The album with images most recently uploaded
    • Date created
    • Photo count – The number of total images in each album

    The featured event photos you upload for your events will be automatically placed into your group’s default photo album, which is called Meetup Group Photo Album

    Event photos uploaded on event homepages will be placed in a new album named for that particular event. Learn more about uploading event photos.

    You may also create new group photo albums or rename them.

    Rename photo albums

    To change the title of your photo album, open the album and select Album settings.

    In the Album settings dropdown menu, you may also reorder the photos in the album, move photos to a different album, or delete the contents of your album.

    Managing group photo albums
  • An event photo album is a crowdsourced memory bank for a group. Albums are a great way to share memories with other members and give potential members an idea of what a group's events look like. 

    Creating an event photo album

    When photos are uploaded to an event, a photo album is automatically created for that specific event. Group organizers, co-organizers, and assistant organizers can create new photo albums from the Photos section of the group as well. All members can upload photos to an album but cannot create a new album.

    Upload a photo to an event album

    These photos must be in JPEG, GIF, or PNG format, be less than 15MB in size, and 

    All photos should be under 15MB in size, in JPG, GIF, or PNG format, and adhere to Meetup's Terms of Service. If an uploaded photo does not appear immediately, please wait a few minutes before trying again.

    Uploading photos of an event
  • Note: On the Android and iOS apps, it’s only possible to remove photos that have been uploaded to albums.

    Not all pictures turn out great. Maybe you were having a not-so-photogenic day, or you just want to change things up with your Meetup group and start fresh. Whatever the reason, you have the ability to remove any photo you upload to a Meetup group photo album. Don’t worry about another member deleting your memories; only the organizers and co-organizers can remove photos that aren’t their own.

    Photos removed from an album are removed permanently. The only way to retrieve them is for the owner of the photo to re-upload them.
