When we work out how to send large files by email, it will be the biggest achievement of the digital age. Though the internet has managed to seamlessly connect continents and allowed the world to function around the clock, the brightest minds still haven't mastered a way to ping files over using our everyday email servers.

You'd imagine, then, that the solution would be pricey – after all it must be pretty high-tech. But no, there's no need to spend any money at all. These free tools will help you send large files to design clients without the hassle of bounced emails and hours of frustration with FTP connections. And some even have iPhone apps and Android apps to make your life even easier.
