I have found myself trying out different ways of sending large images to customers, but I have never been very happy with the solutions. FTP-servers and all kinds of plug-ins that shall make your life easier have just given me a headache. However, now I have found something I am very pleased with. The Norwegian made program Filemail is just amazing. It is easy to use, and it works very elegantly.
I have been using a free test version for a while, but have finally upgraded to a corporate version. This is giving me the opportunity to upload as much as 25GB in one load!!! The files will be available for my customers or friends for up to 90 days and there is no limitation to number of downloads. This is very good, but at the same time it is elegant.
I can administrate my own account. As admin I can specify a header and custom colours which will be shown on every page. These branded pages will also be shown to all clients receiving my uploads. I will also have access to detailed day-to-day upload and download statistics, summaries and a detailed view showing tracking data on all downloads.
I have also added my own upload-site as a link on my website. This site has been branded with the WildPhoto heading and colours. As administrator I can decide which filetypes are allowed to be uploaded from this page, and all uploads will be collected in an online filemail inbox. I will also receive an e-mail informing me about my received files. Very easy!
Filemail Desktop is a small application you can install locally on your computer. It is a desktop version of the website, with some extra features such as:
- support for sending folders
- drag'n drop support
- compression before sending
The program is available in 18 different languages including Norwegian.
