Users often share digital photographs over communication links, e.g., via SMS, chat, URLs, etc. This disclosure describes techniques to determine and present ranked candidate images for sharing to other users and user devices. The ranking is based on a variety of characteristics of the images, including time of capture of the images, as well as other user-permitted factors that can indicate user intent, such as history of previous sharing of images by the user, the current or recent device context of the user (chat or conversation, application being used, data on the user’s screen, and so on), etc. By intelligently ranking images in sharing galleries, the user's time spent searching for and sharing images can be reduced, which can improve user satisfaction and sharing frequency.
