How to Share Amazon Photos with Family and Friends: 2 Normal Ways

No matter you use Amazon Photos on the web or your phone, you can always share photos and videos on Amazon Photos in two major ways. 

The first way is the best way to share photos with family if all of you are Amazon users. 

The second way allows you to share photos with anyone you want even they are not Amazon users.

Way 1. Share Amazon Photos with a Sharing Group

In Amazon Photos, you can create multiple photo-sharing groups. These photo-sharing groups may be based on relationships with friends and family, events, or your interests. With the sharing groups, you can share small or large size of photos and videos with full resolution online.

You can use the sharing group to:

  • Share photos, videos, and albums with groups conveniently.
  • Create up to 2,500 photo-sharing groups in an Amazon Photos account.
  • Add up to 50 friends and family members in each sharing group.
  • Members of a sharing group can easily comment on shared photos and videos.
  • Share and managed shared photos through a browser, a mobile app, or a Fire Tablet.

To share photos privately online with Amazon Photos, you just need to create an Amazon Photos sharing group and add photos and videos to this Amazon Photos sharing group. Here is the detailed instruction. You can follow the same instruction to share Amazon Photos on the web or your phone, but let’s take sharing Amazon Photos through the web as an example.

Step 1. Log in to Amazon Photos with your Amazon account.
Step 2. Switch to the “Sharing” page and click “Create Group”.
