Hi all
Can someone advise me on the best way to send 152 images (30mb) by email.

I dont know a lot about it and was trying to load them one at a time.

Any help appreciated

John

A little more detail would help.
Is this for a friend? Then maybe burning them to a CD and posting it to them would be more appropriate?

Do they need to be 30mb combined file size?

why not upload them to one of the free storage area sites and let them download them

Worth checking the email capacity of where you are sending it. Most accounts now will happily cope with 10MB, so you can send them in batches. I think Virgin Media is currently 20MB for example.

The other option, is a so called 'web locker'.
Have a look at yousendit.com
Of course in a few weeks the Digital Millenium bill, will probably outlaw such services.

I think I have a 10mb limit on my emails.
I was wondering if there was some system that I could sent a "folder" with say 10mb inside.
Its a bit labourous loading them one at a time
Also I would like to make it easy for him at the other end

Have you got Sky? you will have free use to upload 1gb worth of password images on their site!

Burn the images to a CD then either:
a) Take the CD to the customer (obviously you will include this service within your pricing structure)
b)Ask the customer to collect the images
c)Have a think about why you say customer and yet after providing a service have little idea about providing a reasonable customer service.

OK Boyd, its like this.
I am an amatuer and I dont usually have customers. I dont offer any services at all.

A professional golfer approached me about getting some shots for his new web site.

I agreed to do it for him on the basis that I would guarantee nothing and charge him nothing.

I called him a "customer" for the want of a better word.


Now I would just like to send him the proofs as quickly as possible.

Call and collect then. If he wants them he'll come and fetch them.
Why are you worrying about such pro bono give-aways?

With BT Broadband you can upload and send up to 25MB , of course if the golf chap is hotmail etc then that won't work either. So really depends on him and his service.

Alternatively join another site that allows you to upload as many images and password protect it then give him access...
