advice sending images

Hi Guys this is my first thread so I would like to say hi to all:)
I was chasing some advice if anyone can help. How do a lot of you guys get your images to news editors when in remote areas .At the moment I process on location and email at the biggest town I can find or send DVD’s when I get home .Is there a better way???
Kindest regards,

If you can get to a computer with internet, there’s a great website called Yousendit. You can send up to 100mb files at a time for free. Hope that helps. Simon.

There is also this one. http://www.mailbigfile.com/

I recently used it to send 70 MB TIFFS to the US with no problems. It takes about 10 mins on a 2 MB BB connection.

Do you usually send the RAW files, Tiffs, or maximum quality JPG files?

I see you have a website so you can also upload your images to your web server and simply email the link to your clients. They click on the link, open the image in a browser and then ‘save as’.
You can also try doing the same with a .zip folder of images. I’ve just sent 168 high res images to the US this way. The only limitation I had was the space available on my server which forced me to deliver in two separate batches.

There are a number of ways to handle this. I don’t mail disc’s except for rare situations. 99.8% of my work is transmitted.

First I’d suggest that you get a cell phone or “air card” that enables you to transmit from your cell phone system. That way you can send files anywhere you have cell reception. This alone has made some jobs possible. Next I’d get a Photoshelter account so that you can set up galleries for your clients with direct download ability from the light box that they get. This saves my butt with clients who are out of the country and I’m on deadline. I did a shoot for a British mag on deadline and transmitted from my cell phone to their Photoshelter gallery while sitting in the airport terminal waiting for my red-eye flight back from locale. Love it!
