My wife is an interior designer and she needs help sharing images...

I am posting here for the first time and I am not sure this is the right forum, but anyway...

I am hoping you know of a software or web solution to the following problem. I would be grateful for any suggestions.

My wife is an interior designer and I am her ad hoc IT department. She is having a lot of trouble when she needs to send images to clients for review or approval. Usually, she attaches one or more image files to an email (using Apple Mail.app) and sends that to the client.

Sometimes, the client says they can't see or "download" the image. This is when she calls me to bail her out.

Here are the different kinds of image/graphics files that she needs to share with her clients: 1. scans from magazines and other hard copy printed matter (including her own drawings) 2. photos she shot that are stored in iPhoto 3. CADD Drawings (usually converted to PDF) 4. photos and graphics files she drags off of websites

The solution needs to be very EASY to use. My wife and her clients are technical in any way.

Ideally, there would be some kind of web site where she could just dump all these different files and make them viewable to her clients in a web browser. Flickr comes to mind, but I think it is too public and too photo (.JPG) oriented.

Thanks for any ideas...

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
