My understanding is that sending such images out into the Internet
(and, especially, into the clouds), is like publishing the images and
sending them to newspapers and magazines, and to all of the law
enforcement agencies, at each Internet node that your data passes
through, between your sending and the destination.

I could be wrong.

But, I recommend that your girlfriend proceed with extreme caution, if
she is considering doing the same.

And, any such images could become further published on porn web sites.

And, of course, for both of you, any images so transmitted, could come
back to haunt you both, in the future, when such images could cause
even more harm.

It is an area in which everyone should be extremely cautious.

But, that is my understanding, and, I could be wrong.

It is a gamble with extremely high stakes.
