For example, I want to have a shortcut "get meta info from image" like this:

  1. I open Photos on my iPad.
  2. I Select an image and click the Share button.
  3. I Select "get meta info from image" shortcut in the popup menu.
  4. The shortcut runs and it can receive the image which I selected.
  5. The shortcut popup a dialog that has meta text information (e.g. name, size, ...).

I stuck in step 4.
