Hello everyone!

I have highlighted some photos from my google photos and i want to share them to my "gallery" app. When i click on "share", that option is not available. Is there a way to add an app to the shared options? in particular i want to add the "gallery" app to the shared options.

Thank you.

If they are photos that are on Google's servers, but are not photos that you took with your phone, you can use Google's Photo app to download them to your phone and then you can use other apps on your phone to view the photo (if the photo was taken three years ago, it won't show up as one of today's photos. You'll need to scroll backwards through your photos until you've found the photos from three years ago).
