You can upload photos to Costco's website and then share that photo album with the troop. I'm pretty sure the only people who can access those albums are ones who are personally invited.

I really wish BSA provided something more than platitudes when it publishes guidelines like the one about private FB groups. What's the difference between a private FB group and a troop website whose access is password protected? And when you use a phrase like "administering the scouting program" do they really mean troops and packs or is this maybe a guideline for camps, councils, districts, etc? I would not sign a Communications blue card for most of the examples of communication that comes out of National.

Still using Picasa. It now is mashed up with Google+ photos, which has advantages and disadvantages. For example, you can share an album with overlapping groups (circles) pretty easy. On the other hand, integrating a sideshow into your website may work for some devices, not others.
Also I don't post volumes of photos. I do like shutterfly's stuff.

Just came across this thread, its something we've been dealing with this side of the pond as well.

Historically we used Picasa which we found quite useful in terms of restricting access. However when it got mashed up into Google + it became a complete nightmare to use and actually caused us to have a complete rethink. We now make all photos fully public on our group website.

If you are up for doing that then it is possible to integrate picassa/google+ albums with your website. We have a word press site and they have a plug in called Aplinepress which"talks" to google + (I'm not a techie so bare with me)

The big advantage is that you get what is effectively unlimited stored photos that comes with google+ with wordpress visibility and useability. Only downside is that photos taken in portrait get displayed in landscape and we've not yet figured out how to fix that particular annoyance"!
