    Bear in mind Dropbox is certainly is not the fastest. It works well because of covering almost every platform and having a decent web interface, but huge files take time to upload / sync.

    Don't know if it is competitive, but looks nice

    Google Drive allows for huge files to be shared with fast and simple downloads. And though I haven't tried it yet, I understand Microsoft is offering unlimited storage with an Office 365 subscription.

    I agree with Doug, if your client does not have their own FTP, then dropbox doesn't have a lot of features but it has been working well for me. You just have to be super organize if you have a large volume of images. Some of my clients will send me images though Hightail or Yousendit, etc.

    Good luck!

    OneDrive works great for me.

    Dropbox. It's not the fanciest, but it has a professional reputation (ie: not known for hosting iffy stuff). And most industry people already use it.

    FTP/file sharing recommendations/advice

    Hi everyone!

    I've just joined here. I am a retoucher with 3 years assisting experience and now starting to branch out on my own.

    I was just wondering about file sharing services

    - What do you use/is the most professional system
    - Can you recommend any particular company?

    I'm looking for something I can upload work to, that clients will have private access too. It'd be nice if it were aesthetically pleasing too.

    I've seen a few customisable FTP sites around eg Brick. Has anyone used these? Is there anything better?

    Many Thanks,

    Do you know?

    FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
    by Doug Nelson
    Ok, it's been pointed out to me several times recently that not everyone knows how to FTP files. This is a very important task that anyone working with large files should know, so I've started this thread to make sure everyone does know.
