How do I share my BT Cloud files by email?

The only thing easier than uploading your photos to your BT Cloud is sharing them with others. 

Step 1: Select the photos on BT Cloud that you want to share - it doesn’t matter how many you select.

Step 2: You can create a ‘Album’ of photos, by generating a public link to email with the album you’ve chosen to share. When the recipients receive the link and click on the link, they’ll be able to view and download the files you’ve selected on their web browser, whether or not they have BT Cloud. This allows you to share files more selectively and privately than by posting them on social media, and means you don’t have to worry about size limits for sending attachments by email.
