We have improved our method to deliver your photo and video files, so this is an update to our blog “Instant Photo and File Delivery,” posted in March.
We Deliver Your Photos and Videos Fast!
Often, our clients are on site so when we finish our aerial drone photography session we copy the files to the client’s computer or deliver them on a USB thumb drive.
When the client is not on site, we deliver their files within two business days using our Google Drive account. The process is easy and no software needs to be installed by the client. We send a link via e-mail and the client simply clicks on the link to arrive at a shared folder where they can view and download their files.
Does Google Drive Work For Smart Phones and Tablets?
We haven’t found a platform yet that doesn’t work with G-Drive! Desktop computers seem to be a little easier to work with for most people, but G-Drive can also be used with smart phones and tablets. Although we haven’t tested all of the devices out there, we have been successful with the latest Android and iOS operating systems.
Click on the link in our e-mail and the G-Drive folder should appear. Select the files and then download. The files will appear in your download folder and can be viewed or copied from there.
Click on the link in our e-mail and the G-Drive should appear. Select the file to view, then save to your file system. You may have to save your files one at a time.
Note: Earlier versions of iOS may give you access to the device’s local file system. Our iPad 9.7 Pro is running iOS v12, which makes it much more difficult to save files to the device’s local file system. The Apple way is to save your files to “My Drive” which means saving to your account on iCloud, DropBox, Google Drive, etc. If someone finds a better way, then please send me a comment.
