    how to transfer large files for print?

    Scanning illustrations at 300 ppi that need to be transported or transmitted digitally/electronically to be printed. I believe the print formats are TIFF, PDF, EPS.

    Someone mentioned weTransfer.com, but that seems to be a monthly fee service. Does anyone know of a FREE service for transferring large digital files in format suitable for print.

    Tried attaching file in JPEG format to email, and could only do one at a time. Believe only JPEG, GIF, PNG formats used in Web can be email attachments.

    Just noted "Photoshop[ EPS" Save As option. Can this be emailed?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You might look into Google Drive. You get about 5GB of storage free and you can control access to the files. drive.google.com

    If you zip all files, the free SendSpace might work for you. Or...

    Some zip utilities, like the free 7-Zip do a better job at compression, but anything is better than nothing.

    Thanks Major Payne (you always come up with good links). Will have to check them out later.

    I don't seem to have a ZIP utility. There is a "Stufit Expander" and a "Compressor" in the open lab, but don't see ZIP.

    One thing I was wrong about: PDF files -- as well as JPEG, GIF, PNG -- can be transmitted by email. And, I believe PDF (like TIFF and PSD) is suitable format for printing.

    You're welcome.

    Windows operating systems come with a compression/de-compression utility (Zip/Un-zip), but 7Zip is free and may do a better job at zipping.

    What files which can be sent by mail is usually limited to the file size of the email service being used. Files with a .zip extension may be blocked because of the common use of this extension to spread malware.
