You can also use BaseCamp to upload them to your favourite photo sharing website.

Fully Customisable Homescreen
Whether you go somewhere often, continually change settings or create shortcuts, Montana’s fully customizable home screen allows you to bring up to 16 items from "Where To?," "Setup" and "Shortcuts" to your home screen so you can easily access them without having to click between screens.
Reorderable Menu Options
Reorder any menu however you like with this new feature, which keeps you from constantly scrolling to the bottom of a long list.
Montana’s smarter profiles feature remembers which profile you were using, based on the mount, so when you’re off-roading or trying to find a bike shop, it will put you in the right frame of mind so you can get you on your way quickly.
