    When I deliver my P4 pictures to the real estate agent, they usually have issues by handling them. What method do you use to give your clients the pictures? Videos are easy, we can use vimeo for example. What format MLS requires in order that the picture can be properly uploaded into the listing? I'll appreciate your comments.

    Can't imagine anyone having problems handling .jpg photos on a thumb drive. They're cheaper than SD cards and everyone has a USB port on their computer or laptop.

    I paid about $5 each for some thumb drives branded with my logo.

    Yea, thumb drives or dropbox. Even Google cloud. They don't need an account.

    I've found Google cloud (Google Drive) to be a hassle to share with others. I can't find an easy way to share. It implies the viewer needs to be on my network, permissions, etc. I like Dropbox, just right click the file, copy the share link and send to my customer. Google isn't that easy, unless I'm missing something.

    I have had zero issues with Google for delivering panos (25 pic ones) and ~10-15 individual pics. There is a box you have to check to determine if the recipient requires a google account or not. I click that they don't require a google account and have had no issues thus far.

    So I asked my IT guy at work and figure out what I wasn't doing correct. It's all good now. It takes more clicks than DropBox, but it works, and I have loads of space on my Google Drive.

    Well for me Dropbox is free, I've got like 52GB earned free, but Google drive I have 100GB for $2/mo, so I have lots of options.

    It's not FREE but Hightail has an excellent interface (for you and your client). Since witching to HT I've had nothing but compliments. Plus with Hightail I get to see how many times they've looked at each picture and downloaded each picture.

    I use Zenfolio for hosting online. The agent can share the gallery with the home owner or his/her team online.

    I have been doing some form of Real Estate photography for about 7 years and I find that sometimes I sell the photos more than once. For example, a new owner of a resort property will want to use the photos for their vrbo listing.
