In Android 5.0, Screen Pinning was added. It can pin apps, great
But it can't pin single photos.

How many times have you tried to show someone one of your photos, only to have them go through your whole album?

Photo Pinner solved that

Simply select a photo in your favourite gallery app, share it to Photo Pinner and press the pin button. Android will take care of the rest - you can even make it go to the lockscreen before unpinning!

Photo Pinner is totally free, free from ads, has a tiny file size and needs no permissions

It also supports basic pinch zoom features, and views in fullscreen

Is there a way to hide the "help"? I don't need people to know how to exit the pin app. Now that I know, I know. :)

Otherwise, an app I didn't know I had a use for, but now think will be valuable. Thanks!

Nope, I think you can do it with device admin, but there's no documentation yet

Hello.
Is there a way for being asked for pin for leaving the photo?
It's too easy is someone knows hot to leave the pinning...
Thanks.
