Hello,

Sharing images by google photos is not so good. User is pressed to install photos if they don't have it. Google drive is cumbersome requiring a list of text links.

If I share the images directly into the app, each 7MB image is stored on the users phone, consuming their memory.

Is there a clean way to link link images that are not in turn stored on the recipent's phone?

Hi,

You can try Imgur to share images. It is possible to share images only with someone who has the link and not to everyone. To learn more about Post Privacy Settings, see this page.
