SharinPix Single Image

The SharinPix Single Image component is used to display an image having a specific tag.

Using this component, users can also upload a photo on a record in only few clicks. In this case, the uploaded image will be automatically tagged with the tag name specified by the SharinPix Single Image component.


This feature is only available on Lightning. It can be used:

  • On Community Builder
  • On Page Builder
  • On Desktop
  • On Mobile
  • In Flows (but not in Field Service Mobile Flow)
  • In your own Lightning Component development
