I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I heart DropBox! Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers.
Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they’ll be instantly available on any of your other computers that you’ve installed Dropbox on (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!) Because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website*.
I have used it to send large files to my art licensing clients.
I have used Dropbox to share photos with my family.
I use it to backup and move my 1Password logins between my desktop and my laptop.
I use it to store my art licensing portfolio pdfs so if I’m at a trade show and something goes sideways on my iPad (Yup! I finally got one – more on that in a later post) the files will be available to reload.
One Saturday night an artist emailed me in a panic, with a photo of her broken Product Mock-Up Magic CD, telling me how she needed the photos to do some mock-ups needed on Monday. I was able to get her everything she needed within 1/2 hour. (Lucky for her I was on my computer!)
There are so many ways to use DropBox – and did I mention it is free?

On Twitter earlier this week, on of the people I follow (thanks @MaryRarick!) linked to a great post called 5 Ways To Send Files To Your Dropbox Without Using Dropbox – always good to have many access option!
Here’s to your organized, accessible and creative success!
