    Hello,
    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!
    You can save image and then use Xamarin.Essentials Share like the following code

    string filePath = model.PhotoPath;//the path you saved  
    string fileType = "image/jpeg";  
    ShareFile fileToShare = new ShareFile(filePath, fileMimeType);  
    ShareFileRequest shareRequest = new ShareFileRequest(fileToShare);  
    await Share.RequestAsync(shareRequest);  
    

    For more information you can refer to:
    https://github.com/xamarin/Essentials/issues/424

    Best Regards,
    Wenyan Zhang
