OH wants to send a folder containing about 60 photos by e mail to someone. What is the best way to do it?


Eldrick Report 8 Dec 2012 20:52

Zip it probably. Most email programmes cant send folders.

Alternatively load it to a free cloud server and share the access.

Failing that, its one at a time!

Or use a drop box, I know where I work uses these all the time but I am sure there would be ones for personal use. Just google filesharing with drop boxes and you should be able to find one with a free trail period.

We have drop box, don't know if the recipient has. Will check, thanks Michelle.
