I am trying to send a collection of my digital photos to a client thru email. But every time I do, I am receiving an error that the file size is too large. How can I resolve it? Do I need to convert those photos first? Any help will do. Thanks.

Dear, every site has it's file attachment limit like gmail and yahoo allow 25MB of file for one file attachment and if your 1 file size is larger than the size stated above, then it will definitely not attach the file. For the attachment of your required pictures which are to be sent, you have to resize them probably using PhotoShop or some other picture resizer software. First you will need to resize the picture and then it will be attached and uploaded easily.

Hello,

If you are using free e-mail service they do have limits on the files you can attach. Resizing the photos might compromise the quality of the photo you are going to send to your client and I know that can have a big effect on your transaction. I do suggest that register for a free online storage that you can share with your client. Most of the free online storage websites have a minimum of 5 GB worth of files.

You can share your login details with your client, and when you're done you can simply change your password so you are the one who can access the storage. Here are some best online storage websites:

1. Box Simple, Secure Sharing

2. Dropbox Your stuff, anywhere

3. Evernote Remember everything

4. Google Drive

If you are sending the photos as attachment to an email, make sure you don’t exceed the maximum allowed size. The restriction on the attachment size depends on the email service you are using. If you are using Gmail to send the photos, the maximum size for an attachment is 25 MB and this 25 MB limit only works on Gmail and may not apply to other email service.

Most of the mail servers are configured not to accept attachments bigger than 10 MB. So, if you are using other mail service and not Gmail, you may accidentally bump into this 10 MB limit attachment. On the other hand, if you have a Gmail account, here’s an update on the 25 MB attachment limit.

In November 27, 2012, Google announced on their blog that users will now be able to send attachments as big as 10 GB. This is with the help of Google Drive which they launched back in April 2012. So, if you need to send an attachment bigger than 25 MB, upload that file to your Google Drive then send it as an attachment via Gmail.

To fix your problem, upload your photos to your Google Drive or in Google Drive, create a new folder and upload the photos to that folder. Now, when composing your message in Gmail, click on the Google Drive icon to attach your files from your Google Drive.

Now, when attaching your files, select the folder where you uploaded the photos instead of selecting the individual photos then click “Insert” to attach the folder. Gmail will check if your recipient has access to your files. When it detected the file is not shared with your recipient, it will prompt you to change the files’ sharing settings.
