File too large to upload


#1

If a file is too large to upload, how can it be marked as "delivered?"



I just completed a gig, and the file was HUGE. It could not be uploaded, so I gave the buyer a link instead; however, I got an email stating my gig was delivered late.



How can I avoid this in the future?



Thanks for your advice in advance!



P.S. I tried to find the answer before submitting this, but evidently, I didn’t have the right search phrase.

Reply to @kjblynx: Yes, I do too, but the problem is sometimes the file is still too big, so what I do is provide a link for them to upload the project. The problem with that is how to upload the project to show it delivered.

Simple:


  1. First of all!

    Tell your client that the file is big and you’ll send a sample to stay in the portfolio and you get that and compress it to fit in the 150Mb delivery.
  2. Send your file to your e-mail with http://www.wesendit.com
  3. Copy the link and paste it in a message after you delivered.



    Ta daaaaaaaa!

    The simplest and most professional way to do it.
