Avoid the Hassle of Sending Large Files
Avoid the Hassle of Sending Large Files
You’ve done all of the hard work—planned out every detail of your wedding, agonized over the guest list, created the perfect wedding-day look, and, finally, enjoyed your special day! The honeymoon’s over, and you might think it’s time to sit back and enjoy the start of your marriage, with all the wedding drama (and stress) behind you. But there’s one last item on the checklist that you might have forgotten: Sharing the photos from the ceremony and reception.
Are you trying to find the best way to share your wedding photos with your family and friends? Well, look no further because we’ve got answers.
Why Cloud File Sharing is the Way to Go When It Comes to Sharing Photos from Your Wedding
Cloud file sharing makes sending large files—like a folder of photos—fast, easy, and manageable. Here are some of the reasons why.
Better Capability Than Email Attachments
When it comes to sharing photos, email attachments are a thing of the past. Sure, sending over a quick email with a single picture won’t cause any problems, but we’re guessing you have a little more than one (or two, or three, or four) photos from you wedding that you want to share.
The average attachment size for most email domains is around 10 MB. With cloud file sharing, you can upload an entire folder of photos and share it with everyone you want with a single link. The link doesn’t have to be sent in an email either—you can do over text or any type of chat messenger.
Friends don’t spam friends with emails. Cloud sharing is as easy as sending one link to your entire address book or contact list!
Cloud sharing is accessible to anyone with internet access. Your friends and family members will be able to view your photos on their phones, laptops, and tablets no matter what carrier or brand of device they have. They don’t have to have an account with the cloud service provider, either—they’ll still be able to view and download the files, even if they don’t know what cloud sharing is (hi, Grandma!).
Another benefit of cloud sharing is its built-in security. You retain control over your files even after you share them with other people. Plus, you can determine the amount of access that each recipient has on an individual basis, if need be. Add some additional protection by putting a password on your shared link or by making the link expire after a certain period of time.
The built-in protection of cloud storage makes sharing files safe and keeps your data protected: Cloud providers use special encryptions to ensure your information stays safe.
Cloud sharing is incredibly flexible, not only because you can access files from any device in any location, but also because you can use it in coordination with other applications. Connect your cloud account to other media platforms for maximum efficiency in your file sharing.
Different Types of Files? No Problem
It’s pretty likely that you don’t just have photos from your wedding—you probably have videos too. Include the footage of you exchanging your vows with your partner in the same folder as the still-shots of you two at your beautiful reception venue.
If you (or your photographer) uses an application or type of software to edit your photos, your recipients will still be able to view and comment on the shared files, even if they don’t have the tool themselves.
A Place for Everything, and Everything in Its Place
Cloud sharing is especially conducive to organization. You can create subfolders to keep everything in order, and cut down on time spent searching when you go back to look at your photos. Create as many or as few subfolders as you want, and label each one to make finding the photo you (or your recipient) is looking for quick and easy.
When you upload your photos to your cloud account, you create an instant backup of all those files. Don’t jeopardize losing pictures of you and your partner on your wedding day—these are memories that you’ll want to cherish for years to come.
Say, “I do,” to Cloud File Sharing
In today’s world of technology, expectations are pretty high when it comes to sharing photos from special occasions. Social media is a great way to show off your wedding photographer’s handywork, but do you really want to create an album with every single picture?
Luckily, cloud file sharing makes the sharing process as simple and convenient as possible. And after all the time you and your partner spent preparing for the wedding, it’s time for you two to catch a break!
