Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Use Buddy Photo Share in the Gallery App in Android 4.4 Kitkat

If you like taking picture with your friends and then want to share the picture with them, then you can do that thing easily in this phone by utilizing the buddy photo share feature that you can find in the Gallery app. In order to be able to use this feature, first you have to enable the face tag feature in the Gallery app and then tag your contacts to the recognized faces on the pictures. Once done, you can easily share the picture to the tagged contacts through the email message or multimedia message.

How to share a picture using buddy photo share?
Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Open the Gallery app.
  2. Tap an album and then tap the required picture to view it.
  3. If you have not tagged your contacts on the picture yet, then you have to tag them first. If you don't know how to do so, you can see the complete steps here.
  4. If you have already tagged your contacts on the picture then you can share the picture easily to the tagged contacts by tapping the Menu key and then select Buddy photo share.
  5. On the "Send picture to" menu, check the box next to the tagged contacts you want to share the picture with. FYI, by default this feature uses the email message as the share method, but if the tagged contacts has no email message then this feature will use the multimedia text as the share method. If the contact has email address and phone number, then you can change the share method by tapping the contact name and then select which email or phone number(if the contact has more than one email addresses or phone numbers) you want to use to share the picture.
  6. Tap OK button.
  7. The picture will be sent to the selected contacts by using the selected share method.

Basically, you can share any picture you have in your phone by utilizing the share menu, but by using the buddy photo share feature you will be easier and faster to share the picture to the contacts you have tagged on the photos.
