I have a Macbook Pro with Sierra OS. When I want to share a photo from Photos or Preview, I cannot use Microsoft Outlook mail which is my default mail application, however when I make Mail the default it is there. How do I add Outlook to my options under Sharing?

Not currently available.

In order to see something in the "Share" menu, the application has to have an extension that installs with the program to enable the option. Microsoft does not currently offer this for the Office products, but you might be able to help get it added:

Instead of messing with Outlook, use OneDrive which you already have if you're using Outlook. Just load the Photos to the "Photos Folder" on OneDrive and from there you can share them with your other computers you own as long as they too have OneDrive installed. I routinely share files that way using OneDrive and it works even while I'm away from my main Mac at my office.

Since you mentioned Mail, are you referring to attaching Photos to your Outlook mail?

Sharing via Mail (whether system Mail or Outlook or other) would mean emailing the photos. So, I'm taking it that's exactly what the OP wants and isn't focused on sharing them with their own other computers.

Outlook doesn't support Mac extensions, and won't unless enough people ask for it.

That's why I asked him if he's referring to attaching the photos to Outlook mail. He wasn't very clear either way.
