Share an image with players

Is there a way to share the image in a handout with my players without actually sharing the handout. I often want them to see the monster but do not want to share the name / rest of the hand out information with my players

Probably the simplest solution is to duplicate the handout and remove all of that, and show them the copy. Next up is copying the URL for the image and sending it in chat: [x](URL#.png) like: [x](<a href="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.d20.io/images/269659873/PQI-LADkod_oxnyeSVNN9kA/original.png?1605278639591#.png" rel="nofollow">https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.d20.io/images/269659873/PQI-LADkod_oxnyeSVNN9kA/original.png?1605278639591#.png</a>) (the #.png is a "URL fragment" that lets the chat parser realize it's an image even though it ends in a number, just append it to the URL).
You could add the image of the monster in the GM layer and show it via shift+Z, but it takes a bit of prep.
I believe that this came from the Aaron a while back: [Image](?{URL}#.png)
Thanks - Looks like I need to do some extra work to do this. Thanks for all the feed back
