    With email you're generally limited to 10 or 15 MB attachments. Since that's smaller than the average hi-res photo file (or video) these days, email can only be used to send unprintable web-sized images or very short videos.

    If you need to send someone hi-res photo files or videos (or any other kind of big file for that matter) you can use one of these 12 FREE Large File Transfer services:

    • WeTransfer.com is FREE for upto 2GB of files or (zipped) folders per transfer. My current favorite!
    http://www.wetransfer.com//

    • Podmailing.com is FREE and allows transfer of unlimited numbers of files of unlimited size. I've transferred upto 6GB files without a hitch. Temporarily out of order!

    Thanks, MrManish.

    Now we have 13 reasons to not burn and mail CDs/DVDs anymore, and we save considerable time and money. And the environment.

    Rocky,

    Another one to add to your list is Binfer [http://www.binfer.com]. What's cool about this one is that you can drag and drop hundreds of pictures and they transfer directly from computer to computer. No need to upload them one by one, or reduce the resolution or zip them or create split rar files. check it out and post your feedback. Note that this is a p2p desktop app, like pando.

    My inclination for professionals is to run your own FTP server. The idea of relying upon third parties really bugs me... free ones such as filezilla are super easy to set up and there are tons of tutorials everywhere.

    There is another totally free service which does NOT require any installation:

    I send my big files with http://www.click2copy.com

    It sends files DIRECTLY to the receiver, i.e. there is no upload to any server. This also means that both parties have to be online.
    It sends files with your full upload speed. For very large files this still takes some time, but you can always stop and resume later, which is pretty cool.

    Hi,


    Check this out! (http://justattach.com) Will this be beneficial to photographer who needs to send large image files to their clients? Able to know when his/her clients downloaded the image file. Access control builtin that allows only the intended recipient can download. Able to send an invitation mail to invite clients to upload their own file to you!

    Works well with Outlook client using the Justattach outlook plug-in. In Outlook client, it will prompt you to use JustAttach if your file attachment is x number of Mb (threshold can be set).

    I use the software ForgetBox to send large files by email.

    ForgetBox
    There is no size limitation for the files, it is free and it runs in background ! You can even send files with ForgetBox via gmail !

    And it is really easy to use !
