Snapshot location

Hi Engineers,
Could you make the snapshot I created available for all Regions.
For example, I created an image for NY site and apply it to SG site.

    Hey Jason, You can transfer snapshots to any region following these instructions https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-migrate-digitalocean-snapshots-between-regions.

    Jason, You can already copy a snapshot you create to any region. In the control panel, click on Images, find your image in the list and click on "More" and choose "Add to Region". From there you can click on each region you wish to use your image in to initiate an image transfer. You can also automate this process by using our API: https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/v2/#transfer-an-image
