Noobie.....Just can't seem to be able to "share" a photo... send it in an email or text from my Synology photos . Choices are only to allow access .... Am I missing a 'duh' thing here?
(can't one attach it ?)

You should be able to generate a URL to that photo using the share icon and then paste it to where you need to and send it off.

As Rusty said, click the Share icon and you'll need to get this:

Just copy the share link.

Thanks for clarifying.... So that is the only way . I was thinking of attaching as a jpg or HEIC to email or text.

I did that and pasted the link in an email.... opened the lURL ink and got a page seen below
it was a quick connect link

PS just went back to try and see what is wrong but I've had 2 beers and it is not a good time to solve problems .... BUT I did see I could click download (on a Mac) and it instantly opens in Preview... I just hit send from there and it opens in mail as a jpg.
But I am curious why my link won't work

Actually, after you click an icon to copy the share link, don't forget to click the Ok button. It should work now.

Yes, not very intuitive, but this is how it works now.

I can confirm this. Clicking OK button is mandatory or you will get a login screen for a public shared image.

But I am curious why my link won't work
Why this is happening might be with your reverse proxy settings (if you have Photos over revers), but looks like you are not landing on Photos app at all.
