How to share photos, videos and album with Amazon Photo & Amazon Prime and how to stop Amazon Music from automatically be launched at PC startup

Most of you know that a Prime Amazon customer have the benefit to have an unlimited storage (only) for photos. Even though the upload could be faster, this can be an easy and cheep way to backup your pictures in a Cloud and possibly to share some of them with parents or for a Blog/Facebook. Unfortunately in the second case you should notice that only an Internet Navigator having an Amazon account could access your shared photos or album!! In fact the link provided by a shared Amazon resource requires a user authentication to be used to access to that information itself and this could be a big limitation also because the Blog/Facebook editor is not able to automatically get a preview of the photo/album from that link.

Anyway, in some situations this could be a sufficient sharing method and in the following I will give you some more information.

As you can find in this Amazon help page:
If you would like to find information on how to share files or folders, go to Share Your Files.
To share your photos and personal videos from Amazon Drive:

  1. Go to Amazon Drive Photos and Videos.
  2. Select up to 25 photos and/or videos.
  3. Click Share.
  4. Either share a link by clicking Get shareable link, or share by email, Facebook, or Twitter.

To share an album from Amazon Drive:

  1. Go to Amazon Drive Photos and Videos.
  2. Click Albums on the navigation panel and open the album you’d like to share.
  3. Click Share.
  4. Either share a link by clicking Get a shareable link, or share by email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Note: You are able to unshare photos, videos, and albums at any time. Unsharing photos, videos, and albums will deactivate the shared link, making it unusable for anyone to use in the future. This will also disable any preview of the shared item(s) that may have been displayed in an email, on Facebook, or on Twitter. For more information, go toUnshare Your Photos, Videos, & Albums.

Note: When you share photos and videos by email from the Amazon Drive website, your recipients receive an email notification with your name in the “Subject” field, a preview of the photo or video, and a link to view the full version–they don’t need a Amazon Drive account. Your recipients can also download shared photos and videos.

Therefore, if you want to share an album you have previously created from some uploaded photos, from the Amazon Photo site select it and, once you are in that album, click the Share icon you will see on the top right of the page. In the following you can find each step of the simple procedure:

Select the album you want to share

Click the Share icon you will see on the top right of the page

Select the sharing category you like (e.g. a share link)

Copy the automatically created link and use it wherever you want

After you share something you can manage that sharing going, from the upper right menu, into the Shared Items voice and then, selecting the row related to the entity you want to stop the sharing, click to the Stop Sharing icon that appear on the top right.

To manage sharing items use the Shared Items voice of the top right menu

Selecting the row related to the entity you want to stop the sharing and click to the Stop Sharing icon

If you use Amazon Music, that is an other benefit for Prime customers, it may annoy you to have its desktop app starting at every PC boot. If you look in Preferences of that application, you can find an option that should disable that “feature” if unchecked.

Even if unchecked, Amazon Music application startup at every PC boot

However, even thought the first option is unchecked, Amazon Music application always started at every PC boot.
Therefore I decided to disable both Amazon Music and Amazon Music Helper applications directly from the Startup tab of Task Manager (cntr + alt + del): note that, if no tabs are displayed, you need to click on the More details icon at the bottom right of the popup window.
To disable one startup application, you need to right click on the line displaying its name and choose Disable from the menu.
