Then the shared item links to the raw image on your server. If someone on Facebook clicks the shared item, they end up with a JPG in their browser window -- not in Facebook's photo viewer, not in a slideshow, not in your gallery or in any navigable location on your website. That's not a user experience that we want to facilitate, or that any web-designer or web content provider should be striving for.

It also makes it impossible for Facebook to scrape for data to support the image, which it gets from the page.

Images can be shared from public galleries, and shared items will link back to the gallery. Or your clients can download the images from your gallery, then upload the images into an album on their profile to provide a proper experience. In either case, we are using Facebook in the way it is designed to be used.
