Canon’s Image Gateway (sometimes abbreviated CIG) is a free, cloud-based image storage site. You need to sign up and establish an account, with your camera connected via USB to a compatible computer, and Canon’s EOS Utility software operating. Part of the setup process is “Web Services” — the option to enter your own specific social media accounts, lists of potential e-mail recipients for future image sharing, and so on.
Once this is established for your EOS M50, the same Canon Image Transfer Utility software gives you the option to use Wi-Fi to send image files to your own Canon Image Gateway, cloud-based storage area — as either an additional storage backup, or in lieu of putting lots of image and video files on your computer’s hard drive.
Again, once images are stored within Canon’s Image Gateway in your personal account, you can log in to your account, select images, and send them as e-mail attachments to pre-registered groups of recipients (you could have your own personal e-mail, perhaps a list of family members, another for colleagues at work, and so on), as well as upload them to social media sites like Facebook and similar image-sharing sites.
We won’t go into detail here, but this is the basic functionality of the “Web Services” icon on the upper-right of the Image Transfer Utility 2 software window.
