How to group related issues: Epic vs Story

We're working on a requirement in our project to view images that we get from some place.

It's my job to send the images, a colleague will do the processing and another will show them on a website. How do we group these issues together? Note that there are a lot of dependencies, we can't process or show without having sent them.

I found that an Epic could have issues, but a Story only has sub-tasks, not plain issues like "New Feature", "Task", etc. What's the way to go here?

Hello Dave,

Based on what you said, I recommend you to use epics instead of stories, since it can group different issue types and not only sub-tasks.
