How to Securely Share Large Files

Get Large Files to Their Destination with eFax

Emailing large files often results in complicated workarounds or failure to deliver. With improved high-definition video and large-format images, valuable files are often difficult to send. You can’t send a high-resolution image gallery, video clip or PowerPoint through email if the files are too big.

Electronic fax avoids this problem altogether, enabling fast and secure delivery. No more slow processing or bounced emails. No need to compress files until they are distorted beyond a usable state.

Compression Strips Content Quality

Compressing your files means stripping out the quality to lower the size of the file. For many companies and professionals, sending the original file is non-negotiable. Not only will original files enable editing, but they are also necessary for large-format printing. Once you’ve compressed an image or video, you can’t restore it to the original size.

Compression isn’t a bad thing when used correctly. You may choose to compress a version of your image or video for web use so it loads quickly. However, you still want to keep the original file in case you need a higher-quality version for another purpose, such as a conference presentation, printed ad or TV spot.

Set Clear Guidelines for Compressed File Use

When sharing files, you will rarely want to compress them first for the following reasons: 

Compressing a file often leads to low-quality versions of your file being used in the wrong places, which can hurt your brand reputation or make you look unprofessional.

In many cases, you will have to share large file sizes. Whether you’re collaborating with a team, delivering a project, sending out company materials or working with a contracted professional, you need the ability to send large files.
