How to Send Someone a Facebook Picture They Do Not Have Access To

by Contributor

Facebook is a social networking site that allows you to stay up-to-date with all of your friends. Facebook is also good at protecting its member's privacy. You cannot view photos or images of people who you are not friends with. This means that even if a friend sends you a link to a photo from an album of someone you are not friends with, you will not be able to view it. There is, however, a fast and simple way to get around this and send anyone images on Facebook.


Go to the picture on Facebook you want to show someone.


Right-click on the image and select "Copy Image Location."


Send the link you just copied to whoever you want. They will now be able to view the picture, even if they do not have a Facebook account.


  • check If you do not see an option for "Copy Image Location" when you right-click on the image, choose "Save Image As" or "Save Target As" and save the image to your computer. Or, you can click and drag the image to your desktop. It will save as a JPG by default. Then send the image to anyone.
