Share and publish photos from Photo Gallery

If you have an email program installed on your PC, you can share photos and videos as email attachments from Photo Gallery. If you have Mail installed as your default email program and have at least one email account configured on it, you can send photos from Photo Gallery using photo email. A photo email allows you to share more photos than sharing photos as email attachments, because the photos you send are uploaded to OneDrive and not to the recipient's inbox.

You can also publish photos and videos from Photo Gallery to a blog, or to websites like Facebook and YouTube.
