3 Apps That Let You Send Multiple Photos for Free

Use these apps to privately send photos to anyone

Are you wondering how to send multiple photos without having to resort to bulky email attachments? Consider a popular cloud storage service to host, access, and share your photos from anywhere or with anyone.

If you're still stuck attaching individual photos to email messages or creating private Facebook albums to share with specific friends, it's time to change that. Here are three great ways you can send heaps of photos privately and securely to anyone you want.

Great for Sharing Across Platforms: Google Photos

What We Like
  • Automatically share based on facial recognition.

  • Automatically save photos to the cloud.

  • Share an entire library with another person.

What We Don't Like
  • Google collects metadata from your photos.

  • May send links to photos rather than actual photos.

If the people you want to share photos with aren't on Facebook or aren't active on any photo-sharing platform, try Google's photo feature called Google Photos. You get 15 GB of free storage.

If you have a Google account, you can start using it immediately. When you have a collection of photos to share, create a new collection to share and then select the photo files to upload and add to it. When you're done, select the people you want to share your photos with from your contacts or grab the URL and send it directly to anyone.

Best for Sharing Folders or Individual Files: Dropbox

What We Like
  • Fast and easy to use.

  • Reliable syncing.

  • Clean interface.

What We Don't Like
  • Limited storage.

  • Additional storage can get expensive.

Dropbox is similar to Google Photos and is another top-rated cloud storage service. You only get 2 GB of free storage space, but you can increase that limit for free if you refer people to sign up with Dropbox.

Dropbox lets you share your folders by inviting others to become collaborators. And like Google Photos, you can also grab the link to any folder or photo file and send it to anyone who needs access to it.

The Handy Apple Feature for Mac and iOS Users: AirDrop

AirDrop window on a Mac
What We Like
  • Easy, seamless sharing with other Apple users.

  • Compatible with many preinstalled iOS apps.

What We Don't Like
  • Users can receive unwanted photos from nearby devices.

  • Works only between Apple devices.

If you and the people you want to share your photos with are all Apple users, there's no reason why you shouldn't be using the convenient AirDrop feature for sharing. It lets you seamlessly transfer files from device to device when they're near each other.

AirDrop works for all sorts of files, but it's perfect for fast photo sharing. Limit sharing to Contacts only to avoid receiving unwanted files.
