In my line of work, there are a lot of photos and videos being passed around, which can take a painfully long time to email in Entourage (or any other email client for that matter). To make things easier on my co-workers, and my patience, I rely on file-sharing websites. Here are some of my favorite services for sharing files for free or a minimum fee.
- File Dropper — This online file hosting site allows you upload your files, then send the recipient a link where it can be downloaded. It's free for up to 5 GB, and there are optional pay accounts (ranging from $1 to $10 a month for up to 250 GB) if you need to host bigger files. It's fast and easy to use.
- YouSendIt — You can send high-quality videos, whole albums of music, and a ton of high-resolution photos at once, up to 2GB in size. When you send your files from the YouSendIt site, your recipient receives a link via email. By clicking the link, she gets directed to the hosting page and can download the file to her desktop.The site offers a free 14-day trial, free "lite" account, or paid accounts from $10 a month and up.
