How to share photos using the BlackBerry Z3

If you are one of the lucky folk that have picked up the BlackBerry Z3, I suspect you may well be new to BlackBerry 10. You're more than likely an ex BlackBerry OS user but the two operating systems are so different and it can sometimes be a small learning curve.

As a BlackBerry Z3 owner you'll be a social creature as it's in our nature these days. That probably means using your new beloved BlackBerry to take plenty of photos and share them with friends via a wide selection of methods, from BBM to social networks.

The above video is a quick 'How To' guide for you 'newbies' on how to share your photos using the BlackBerry Z3 and it really is super easy. As you will see, you'll discover yourself wanting to share from either the photo gallery main page or from within the photo itself. From both locations you will find a share tab. In the main gallery you'll need to perform a long hold on the photo you wish to share, but if you actually have the photo full screen that share tab will already be present at the base of the display.

One of the great things about BlackBerry 10 is that when it comes to sharing you'll be able to use any of the accounts you have in your BlackBerry Hub. These can include emails, SMS/MSM, BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Dropbox and the list goes on depending on what you have installed.

It doesn't really get any easier than that and that's half the attraction of BlackBerry 10. So get snapping away on your Z3 and enjoy sharing your special moments with friends and family.

How to share photos using the BlackBerry Z3


I would add this:

If you're looking at a photo in the Photos app and you don't see the Share button at the bottom, just tap the picture one time and it will appear.

Tap the picture again to make the bar disappear again.

Haven't seen one in person, but from what I've seen second-hand, I am liking it better than the Z30 (since I'm not a fan of the silver lip on the bottom of the Z30).

* Let me clarify: I'm liking the LOOKS of the Z3 better than the Z30. I'd take a Z30 over a Z3 due to the Z30's better specs.

I would like to add that this is also possible directly from the camera app without leaving it.

its very simple.. first u should buy a otg cable so u can use ur usb or micro sd or sd directly to ur BlackBerry 10

you can connect ur digital camera's SD to card reader then connect your card reader to ur OTG cabel and connect it to ur blackberry 10.. then go to file Manager and you'll see on left that it has detected a device..
