Best way to transfer high res images

Hi,

Just wanted to know what is the best way to receive high res large size files, eg 100mb +. I am currently on the trial version of Apples memobile (idisk) but is there a client explicitly for transferring large size files, and which one is best suited for photography and retouching. Does anyone here have any experience with FileZilla?

Thanks

No, pixel, yousendit.com maxes out at 100MB per transfer. The OP wants to transfer 100MB+ files.

For transfer of large files and folders I use one of these 5 FREE online services:

• Podmailing.com is FREE and allows transfer of unlimited numbers of files of unlimited size. I've transferred upto 6GB files without a hitch.
http://www.podmailing.com/

• Yousendit.com is FREE upto 1GB/month with max 100MB per transfer.
http://www.yousendit.com/

• Pando.com is FREE upto 1GB of files or folders per transfer.
http://www.pando.com/

• Sendspace.com is FREE upto 300MB per transfer.
http://www.sendspace.com/

• Pipebytes.com (beta) is FREE for files (not folders, so zip those) upto 300MB per transfer.
http://www.pipebytes.com/

Have fun, Moejoe.

Re: Best way to transfer high res images

I have used iDisk, now mobile me, for more than a year. I'm not a rocket scientist :-) and it took a bit to understand it's methodology and quirks, but I have three clients who routinely send back and forth images this way. I did sign up for the service. Remember, large files take longer. I think the largest of files I have worked with on iDisk have been in the 90-95 meg range. I don't send layered psd's, just non-compressed tiffs and normal jpegs. If you have a PC there is a different address to access the files.
I have used Pando and others and have preferred iDisk.

Re: Best way to transfer high res images

I have used Pando for quite a while now with no problems.
I have just tried Podmailing which I think looks quite good, I especially like the way you can download them as torrents. I shall be trying this with some big files soon I think.
Thank you for the link rokcetscientist

Thanks, Im on mac, the person trying to send me pics in on PC, and not very tech savvy. Is there something different that PC users need to do to upload files onto my public folder?

No Moejoe, PC users can use the same FREE services mentioned above, in exactly the same way. They don't need to do anything different than Mac users need to do.

I use a Mac, and I send and receive very large files to and from PC users all the time with those FREE services.

Then he/she should get a Mac.
