If you’re a professional handling photographs for your company your first inclination is to turn to social media.
Facebook, Photobucket and Twitter all include photo capabilities, but do they give you the opportunity to truly share and even store photographs? The answer, of course, is no.
You can send pictures via email, but that too has its faults -- not the least of which are the file size limits placed on attachments by the likes of Gmail, Outlook and Yahoo Mail. If a photo file is too big, the message will bounce back to the sender, or never send at all and become lost in cyberspace.
Programs like iPhoto and Picasa have helped somewhat by allowing users to reduce photos to manageable resolutions. But that only works if quality isn’t a concern, which, for most of us is not the case.
Instead, anybody looking to store, share and even protect photos should turn to the cloud storage and sharing tools offered by YouSendIt. Because photos are stored on YouSendIt’s secure servers, which meet even the strictest compliance requirements, and are accessed through the cloud, you’ll enjoy anywhere anytime access to them -- whether from a home computer or on the go through a mobile device.
File sizes will never again be a problem either, as YouSendIt allows you to share individual photos or whole folders up to 2GB at one time for free.
