        let destinationPath = documentsPath.stringByAppendingString("/" + filename).stringByExpandingTildeInPath
        UIImagePNGRepresentation(image).writeToFile(destinationPath, atomically: false)

        documentController = UIDocumentInteractionController(URL: fileUrl)
        documentController.delegate = self
