Send 30 photos to four different people.

What's the simplest way?

I don't do Facebook, Insta..., etc.

An attachment is too big to e-mail.

Help,
Mr. Low-tech

I would create an account for picture sharing, like we suggest for attaching pictures to posts. Then just send everyone the link to that site.

SS's suggestion is the easiest; there are free sites. But if it's a one time thing and you don't want to set up an account on one of the sites, send 4 or 5 pictures (whatever will fit in a message) in one email, and send as many emails as needed. Of course you can send each email to all four people (use BCC if you don't want each of them to know the other's emails).

Files

Create a zip file containing the 30 photos. Attach the zip file to e-mail message. Google "zip files" for help.

I use Send Anywhere. Pretty simple. Open the sending file on your computer and click on the pictures you want to send, then tell each of your recipients to click on the receiving button and enter the 6 digit code. 30 at a time may tax it a little, though.

I didn't have any luck with Send Anywhere. Probably because I'm no longer young and don't adapt to new technology very well.

Zip files, I can do. And did. Except that now I discovered that GMail rejects any e-mail containing zip files - even if I send from a GMail account. So I'm asking my two GMail friends for a different e-mail account I could send to.

Thanks

If you have the patience, just send 5 emails with 6 pics each... or 6 emails with 5 pics each... whatever their limit is, it is based on the size of the attachments.

I have the patience, but my computer doesn't. I tried three photos in one e-mail, and it was "too large"...

Sounds like you need to resize them. Use one of these three:
Web resizer
Picresize
or download this program: Irfanview

Zip File

Try sending the zip file as an e-mail attachment.

Another suggestion - you can upload the files to somewhere like picpaste.com It's easy to upload, then just share the links.
