As a freelance photographer, chances are you often need to share large files with clients, editors and other collaborators. While this used to be a real pain (remember burning CDs and mailing them?), fortunately there are now a number of easy ways to transfer large files quickly, securely and from anywhere in the world. Below, we’ve outlined three of the best options out there for professional photographer file sharing. Read on to learn more.
Option 1: WeTransfer
WeTransfer is a popular option for transferring large files that’s beloved for its simple interface and ease of use. Free accounts allow you to transfer up to 2GB at a time, while paid Pro accounts let you send up to 20GB per transfer. Best of all, WeTransfer encrypts your files in transit so you can rest assured that your data is safe. If you’re sending files to someone who doesn’t have a WeTransfer account, they’ll receive an email notification with a link to download the file(s).
Option 2: pCloud Transfer
pCloud Transfer is another great option for easily sending large files. Like WeTransfer, it has a clean interface and is very user-friendly. With pCloud Transfer, you can send up to 5GB for free; if you need to send larger files, you can upgrade to a paid plan. One neat feature of pCloud Transfer is that it allows you to password protect transfers, which is great if you’re dealing with sensitive data. Recipients will need the password in order to access the files you’ve sent.
Option 3: Dropbox
You may already be using Dropbox for storing and sharing smaller files, but did you know that it’s also great for transferring large ones? Dropbox makes it easy to upload and share large video and image files with anyone — even if they don’t have a Dropbox account themselves. All they’ll need is the link to the file or folder that you’ve shared with them. Free Dropbox accounts come with 2GB of storage space; however, if you need more space, you can always upgrade to one of the paid plans. There are a number of easy ways to share large files — even if you’re halfway around the world from your collaborator. Next time you need to transfer a big file (or several), give one of the above options a try!
