Lightroom CC for mobile (Android): Share link to single photo

I want to email a link to a single photo from LR CC Mobile (android in my case). I can do this in LR CC desktop and LR CC Web. 

The scenario for this is taking a single photo on my camera, downloading by wifi to LR CC Mobile, editing it, and then sending it as a link by email to another person. The only way to email a single photo from LR CC Mobile is as an embedded or attached photo, which makes a large email to send or receive.

You could place this photo in its own album, and then share that album on the web.

Yes, I could, I know. I could also save it to Onedrive and share it from there - just as much extra faff.

Alternatively Adobe could simply implement the functionality that is available on LR CC Desktop and LR Web. The major benefit of that is that you DON'T have to create a new location/album for your image, thereby cluttering up your system - you can just share it in place.

A single photo can be shared Ad-hoc without the need for an Album.

Select the image and right click selecting Share to Web.

Right-click in Lightroom Mobile? Which finger does one use for that?  :)

You are correct Johan, my instructions are for the desktop app. 

Tap the [...] icon
Choose Select
Pick a single image
Tap Share icon
Choose Share to Web

If I do that, I don't get the option to share to web; I get a list of apps to pick from - if I pick the mail app, it opens it and embeds the image in the draft email. I cannot see an option to get a link or share as a link.

Sorry about that Paul, my instructions seem to work on the iPad but not the iPhone.
