Broad Applications for Various Users

Whether you’re an agency that needs to send large files for a project, a content creator who needs to request feedback on some videos, a designer wanting to share your creations with a client, or you just want to send a load of family holiday photos to a friend, it’s an invaluable tool for everyone as it can be used in so many different scenarios. Keep reading for an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide if you want to learn how to use it.

Getting Started with Transfer

First of all, to find Transfer and start implementing it into your file-sharing process, you can head to the create section on the Creative Fabrica homepage. This will take you to their online design suite, Studio, a hub with multiple tools that can enhance your creative projects. From there, you can quickly toggle along to the Transfer page using the buttons in the top left-hand corner.

Uploading Files Made Easy

Once you’re there, it’s straightforward to use, even if you have never tried anything like this before. On the Transfer page, first drag the file you would like to send into the square box in the left-hand corner, or if adding a folder you can click ‘Select a folder’ to search for it on your computer and upload. You don’t need to send one at a time – you can add multiple files at once, just keep dragging and dropping or selecting until you’re done. Just make sure you don’t exceed the upload limit.

Wondering what the upload limit is? Well, you can send large files up to 2GB for free without having to sign in or create an account. If you want to free up more space (sharing up to 1TB) then this is also a possibility with a Creative Fabrica All Access subscription.

Personalizing Your File Transfers

Once you have added your files, input your email address and the email address of whom you would like to send the file, along with a personalized subject line and a message. You can make the message as short or as long as you like.

This will be included in the email that will be sent to your recipient above the button that lets them access your file, so make sure to add something here that lets them know what it is you’re sending, and tell them anything in particular that they need to know. This is so much easier than sending an email with an attachment as there will be no need to worry that it will bounce or fail to send because of file size limits.

Security and Expiration Options

Transfer allows you to share your files securely, and you can be assured that your files will be safe when you send them this way. It also gives you the option to set a ‘time to expire’, so that your file is only available to download for a limited period. This could be from 1 day up to 1 year, or you may choose to set it so that it never expires. It’s up to you, but do remember to let whoever you’re sending it to know so they don’t miss out and forget to download it before the expiry date.

Completing the Transfer Process

Once all of the required information is inputted, you can then click send and this will upload the file. When it is finished, it will first say it’s ready and then that the transfer is complete. And, just like that, your file will be on the way to its destination within seconds. As a bonus, you will also receive an email to confirm that it has been a success, so you don’t need to spend any time worrying about whether it has worked or not!

Once the email arrives in your recipient’s inbox, all they need to do is click the ‘Access my transfer’ button. This will take them to the ‘Transfer’ page so they can then download their file instantly.

They can do this as many times as they like, up until your chosen expiry time. And now that they know how simple it is to use, they can also use Transfer to send you files if they have an edit that they want to share, or need to send something large back to you. This is great if you want to share and receive feedback on a file you are working on.

Whether you want to share files with colleagues, clients, customers, or friends, Transfer is the perfect solution for sending large files quickly and easily.

Are you interested in simplifying your file transfers? If so, consider trying this secure tool. Just follow the steps above to start sending large files quickly and easily—it’s free!
