If you ever find yourself needing to email a large file, but you don't want to deal with long wait times for uploading attachments, just send them through the website YouSendIt. With YouSendIt, you can send high-quality videos, whole albums of music, and a ton of high-resolution photos at once, up to 2GB in size (Gmail's limit is 10 MB).
When you send your files from the YouSendIt site, the person you sent the email to receives a link. By clicking the link, the recipient gets to a page where your file is, so that she can download it to her desktop. The whole process is fast and easy, and you'll even get a confirmation that the file was received in your email inbox. Now start bombarding your BFF with those vacay pics!
