Is there a way to share image not just the link social media sites

When using the share buttons the only option to share is the link, Is there a way to share the image that when clicked on will take customers to the site? I find not having the image show is kind of a waste of time... people want to see the image then click the image to go to the link. Any info would be helpful ...Thanks

    Thanks StephenZen the images are not showing in Google+ or Twitter only the links, the preview image does show on Facebook. I'll contact support

    In case you're still interested in sending the actual image to Facebook and not just a link to the image, you can do so by exporting the image to Facebook instead of sharing it.

    Unlike sharing, exporting actually sends a copy of the image to Facebook for display on Facebook. The image is then stored in Facebook's servers, just like if you were to upload the image directly to Facebook.

    So I am finding if I share a link to Facebook or Twitter, as other users have reported, only the link appears. But if I share from Flickr a link is sent that automaticaly blows itself up into an image. Clicking on that image then takes the clicker to the Flickr site. As far as I know the imae itself is not shared, just the link, but an image is seen. Zenfolio seems to be useless as a showcasing tool if it isnt able to interface properly with social media.
  • I have facebook messaged a page asking about it but it seems they do not want to share their secret. bhadriram 2012-12-21 07:46:22 UTC #5. The easiest way is just use a link tag.
