Good morning!

I have been thinking about, and I think that it would be useful to be able to share images directly to other applications (e.g. Mitäkuuluu/Whatsapp, Line, Skype...)

Just like it is done in Android: From the picture gallery view, choose the image to share and then the program+person you want to share it with.

Share picture with jabber is a really important feature!

One can share anything from any SailfishOS app, which offers a share menu (e.g. pictures from the Gallery app), with Android apps by installing Aliendalvik Control (or Android ShareUI plugin, which is included in Aliendalvik Control).
These plugins are available at OpenRepos.net and are easily installable via Warehouse or Storeman.

See screenshot below, how the Gallery app looks like with one of these plugins installed:
