I have an idea that might work. When the album or collection is shared online with a public gallery, there is an option to add comments. You could put a link to the release in the comments section. This requires that the release form is available somewhere online, and it doesn't provide a direct way for people to return a signed copy.
Possibly you could host the PDF in the document cloud. I think that would allow them to sign it online.
Scroll to the bottom of this page for information about comments.
