I am tired to sending out CDs with pictures. Can anyone recommend how to transfer large JPEG files to clients electronically (around 1GB). Need something easy that will not require clients to register.

Thanks!

for such a large transfer, a dvd is probably preferred by the client, I know I would prefer a disk.

but you could probably zip them up into files that meet google documents file limitations *not sure if they limit the size but probably do* and send them links. Perhaps some cloud drive? Possibly smugmug, they may allow a batch download feature, but im not sure.

You might try doing what we do and that is set up a hosted account.

http://www.superb.net/ (external link)

A basic plan will run you $9.00 per month with 20 gig of storage and unlimited downloads.

Once setup you would then up-load the files to the clients page and forward to the client a link to it similar to this.

If you wanted client only access then you would password protect the directory like this.

login = potn

password = password

PS another nice part of having your own domain is identity and image, for example if your domain is say PhotographyBySylvia.co​m then your e-mail addy could be ylvia@PhotographyBySyl​via.com (external link) and since the domain is registered to you (be sure about that when setting one up, some free services are not so free) you can change hosting providers with a minimum of fuss.

You could use dropbox.com. I don't think the receiver needs to register. I've transferred files in the ~200MB range, I think you get something around 1GB for free.

If you have your own domain and wordpress, you could use the Download Manager plugin. Upload your zip file, create whatever options you want (password protect, download view count, download limit, etc) and put it up on a private page linked to your website so they can download it.

Yep, via dropbox you can send the receiver just a download link. they do not need to register. Not sure about size limits.

2gb at a time

no catch, works great MOST of the time. Occasionally people will tell me that they were not able to open files.

I usually just ftp stuff to my host and provide the client with the direct link. I'm already paying for the hosting for my site, may as well use it as a delivery system too. I also believe the perception of professionalism is a little higher when you can send people a link that contains your domain name, keeping everything in-house ie no obvious third parties.

Dropbox.

I have smugmug, and it has a Download all feature where you will get emailed a .zip file with a link good for two weeks. I use that constantly.

I do this as well, and for the same reason.

FTP is also nice as it is very easy to password protect, etc.
