Sending links of albums and images

You can send links of specific photos or albums to anyone you want, via email or IM. Follow the steps below on how to share images and albums.

Link for an individual image

If you want to share one photo in an unlisted album, don't copy the URL line in your browser. This will give the recipient access to the whole album. Instead, do this:

  1. On the My Photos page, click your album.
  2. Click the individual photo you'd like to link to.
  3. Copy the URL (Ctrl-C) located in the 'Link' field on the right-hand side.
  4. Paste the URL in an email or IM (Ctrl-V).

Sharing only one photo within an album

If you want to share just one photo, use the link provided by the 'Paste Link in email or IM' field. Viewers who click on the link you copied from your browser's address bar will be able to see the other photos in the album, even if your album is unlisted.

Link for an entire album

  1. On the My Photos page, click your album.
  2. Click Link to this album on the right-hand side.
  3. Copy the URL (Ctrl-C) contained in the 'Paste Link in email or IM' field. You can also copy the album URL in your browser's address bar.
  4. Paste the URL in an email or IM (Ctrl-V).

Link information is unavailable for albums set to 'Sign-in Required to View.' Remove the sign-in requirement first if you want to share by sending a link of your album or image.
