For years I have been using You Sendit and or Adobe Send Now. While in Sarasota giving my lecture fellow photographer Jeff Wendorff turned me onto Dropbox. It is a free service and they also offer a pay for use service. I am using the free service and it is going to be a great way for workshop clients to share their images with me and the rest of the group. I will also use it to share large files and view files from my phone. I just wanted to pass this on to others as I was thrilled to find out about it.
What is Dropbox?
Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. Any file
you save to your Dropbox will also automatically save to all your computers, phones, and even the
Dropbox website. This means that you can start working on your computer at school or the office,
and finish on your home computer. Never email yourself a file again!
How much space does my Dropbox have?
Free accounts come with 2GB of space (deleted files and revisions won’t count against your limit).
You can always check your usage by visiting your account settings page at [URL]https://www[/URL].
How long until my files are fully synced?
Dropbox will download as fast or as slow as your network allows, and will try its best to not hog
your connection. If you’d like to limit your upload or download rates, you can change them in
Dropbox’s preferences. For step by step instructions, visit the help article at [URL]https://www.drop-[/URL]
Dropbox is fast! How could it have possibly synced all of my files in that time?
Dropbox will look to see if it already has the file you’re trying to upload. If it senses that it
al- ready has the file, it won’t bother to upload it again. If the file has been changed recently,
it will only upload/download the changes rather than the whole thing.
How secure is Dropbox?
Dropbox takes the security of your files and of our software very seriously. Dropbox uses Secure
Socket Layer (SSL) and AES-256 encryption. AES-256 is the same encryption standard used by banks to
secure customer data.
Can I access Dropbox on my mobile device?
The Dropbox App is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Blackberry. To install Dropbox on your
mobile device, visit [URL]http://www.dropbox.com/anywhere[/URL]. You can also get to your Dropbox
at any time by visiting [URL]http://www.dropbox.com[/URL] from your phone.
