Just spent about three hours trying to send forty images...

  1. Gah. My compressed folder didn't seem to compress(!) and I had to use YouSend in the end - even that took ages. My files weren't THAT big..
    Is there a quicker way to send multiple images, or is it simply easier to send multiple e-mails?

    The hotmail accounts use some kind of Sky Drive thing now... Facebook lets you upload hires for people to download or use an FTP x
     
  3. Will investigate, thanks.

    Most image files are already compressed and so zipping or otherwise compressing them makes little difference.
    It depends how big the files are that you're sending and whether or not they need to be that size. They come from digital cameras at very large files sizes these days. If they are to be seen on a computer screen only this is waaaaay overkill and they should be reduced first to much smaller without losing much quality.
    If they need to be large files, then consider posting them on a disc.
     
  5. Thanks. I resized them all so the file was no more that 20MB. I would happily post them by disc, but no, they want e-mail. Sigh.

    Ah little choice then. I prefer to use separate emails in such circumstances as sometimes a massive one won't get there properly, number them 1 or 4, 2 of 4 etc. If you have access to your own web space you could upload them there and send the person who wants them the url so they can get them when they want them. Doesn't make it any quicker but can avoid other problems.
     
  7. Yes, I wondered about separate e-mails but didn't want to look like I didn't know what I was doing, if you know what i mean.

    Ah well.
