Drop Dropbox and Say Hello to PhotoShelter’s Quick Send Tool

Drop Dropbox and Say Hello to PhotoShelter’s Quick Send Tool

Remember the days when you had to develop a bunch of photos before sharing them with your friends or clients? We’ve come a long way since the time of drawn out photo delivery, but there’s a powerful feature within PhotoShelter you might not know about – one tool to rule them all – Quick Send.

Forget uploading your images to Dropbox, WeTransfer or another third party service in order to share them with your clients or customers. From directly within your PhotoShelter account lies the secret to a one-click-download-no-hassle solution. Here’s how it works:

While in your PhotoShelter Library, select one or more photos, head into the Actions menu and select Quick Send. From there, you can choose from a list of file sizes and formats.

A download link will be generated and you’re already more than halfway there. For your security, the link is only valid for one week, then expires.

All that’s left to do is copy the link and send it along via text, email, Slack etc., or use our templated email feature to set up an automated message for whoever needs your photos.

Once your link is out there in the wild, it only takes a second to easily download the files. And you never had to leave your PhotoShelter account to share your photos.

Our team is always gushing over how simple and special this tool is. We use it often!

“Quick Send is the delivery solution I use when sending RAW, untouched files to clients. They can quickly download a batch of RAW files and give me immediate feedback on edits and filters they’d like to see on the final images.”

Sarah Pace, Senior Technical Support Specialist at PhotoShelter

Next time you’re looking to share a batch of photos, remember that there’s a quick way to send exactly what you need. Here are a few examples of various use cases when Quick Send can come in handy:

  • Covering an assignment for your local newspaper? While you’re out and about, select your final photos and share a Quick Send link with your editor so they can review your work.
  • Are you a family portrait or wedding photographer? At the end of your photo shoot, make sure your photos are in PhotoShelter, then send a batch to the client so they can get a sneak peek.
  • Working on a fun personal project and want feedback from a friend or colleague? Send them a Quick Send link with some of your favorite photos and they’ll have hi-res files in their hands in no time at all.

Quick Send is the fastest and simplest way to get your files from point A to point B – no logins, passwords, attachments or third party services required. But what if you want to password protect your photos or require a login to download for an added layer of security? You can do that with PhotoShelter too!

    Yes it is a great feature. I have been using it for maybe 8 years. What I am waiting for is something new from Photoshelter. Everything seems to have become stuck.

    It’s good to be updating your customers on what they might have missed but even better if you can announce something new.

    Great feature but, the world is changing and video is becoming more entrenched in photographers workflows.

    How about being able to send videos ? Then I can ditch WeTransfer as well as Dropbox 🙂
