Ok, i have this last minute job for a friend, shooting his headshot for the back cover of his book. it's done, he's chosen the one he wants, and now i'm having trouble sending it to the publishers.

they want a 600dpi tiff. no problem - i can save it as a mac or ibm, wattaya want? i say, sounding all professional. then - i can't bloody send it to them! it's too big for my email, even zipped. singly.

any smart ideas about how i can get these images, electronically, to philadelphia, today?

Any chance you could transfer them via an Instant Messenger System? That's what I've done in the past when I've had files too large for email...

How big is the TIFF file? Most email clients won't let you send a file that big, can you upload it to the publisher via FTP instead?

Try yousendit.com. I often send photo files this way.

Go to YouSendIt.com and you can execute a browser-based FTP transfer of up to 100MB.

Does it let you delete the files after you don't need them posted?

Either that or maybe a gmail account will let you send it?

The account may let you send it, but whether or not the receiving account's client will accept it is another matter entirely.

If you compress it as a .rar file, you have the option of breaking it into pieces, which can then be reassembled once they're sent. The whole process is fairly automatic.

This is true, but if someone is asking for a particular type of file to be emailed then they really should have checked this out first ;)

My question is what effect does zipping a TIFF have? Since a jpeg compression looses information, does zipping also loose the detail or is the reconstruction of it unzipped?

Small software called beamfile. You can send any size file. Works like charm I once sent 300 wedding pics to a friend all of which he got.

Program resides in your system and you select which files you want to send. Give it an e-mail address and the third party will recieve an email giving them a link which will auto install the recieve program on thier system and start downloading not need to zip.

This just works phenominal.

No -- ZIPping is lossless compression, as is the StuffIt format.

YouSendIt automatically deletes your files after a week or some number of downloads. I don't think there's a way to delete them manually, at least using the free service, but it takes an incredibly complex link to get to the file -- I don't think anything's going to get stolen. But check out their TOS to be sure.

Pando does the same thing.

Load it up to a web site and let the buyer collect it themselves via HTTP or FTP. That's the standard method for transfering large files. If you don't have a web site, maybe you have a friend who can help...
