Not saying that you must to do it, but this is the feasible option , IMO. You may have a try. Sending files (1200 pictures) to an email recipient

Large filesize is not a problem here at all.

I've never used PhotoBucket (or, indeed, any other form of file sharing website), so I can't give you any instructions other than to read any FAQs and information provided on the site.

An alternative would be to place a copy of the photos onto a USB stick or one (or more) SD card(s) and mail them to him/her using the standard postal service (you have got their postal address, haven't you?).

Having read Arc's posts, I think that his method would be best for your situation.

You should resize them to a smaller size then try uploading them to where Arc posted. I have 4GB of photos resized to 205MB.

perhaps these lot would be better for you than dropbox, it has 10gb free storage,i caant see anything about file size upload limits so its possible you could upload the lot in a zip and send the download link to your travel partner, worth checking out ,and if you refer your friends you get extra free storage.

there is a review on cx here,it looks like there is no size limit up to 10gb so this would serve your purpose well.,2817,2395993,00.asp

im using cx now and its pretty much the same as dropbox, took seconds to set up an account ,im uploading a folder as a test.
ive installed the cx app so i have a synced folder and what i place in it goes to the server .then i can get a link to it.

I agree 100%. This is obviously the most appropriate and correct way to accomplish this particular objective.

Nobody wants to receive 1200 files and have to manually relocate them (say to a new folder in My Pictures or wherever you'd like to store them permanently) from being delivered as email attachments. It's clearly much easier to drag/drop off of the USB drive and onto your hard drive target folder... simply as 1200 JPG's.

Then they can be instantly browsed and viewed, either from their original USB location or from their new hard drive location, with any competent image browser program.

USB drives in the 2GB-8GB size are now tiny, and can be bought for just a few dollars. No reason to waste any of your time and energy figuring out how to upload 1200 files in some form to a file-sharing site, and then obligate the recipient to download them. The USB drive solution (and mail it) is definitely the right way to go for this one.

At least that's how I'd do it.
