Thank you. This was perfect. I need to send some photos for a magazine layout and although I am familiar with a good number of things a Techy I am not. This was concise and thorough. I know I"ll be reffering back to it for clarity when I get my file together. Sincerely, Mentally at ease.
Thank you. Simple and easy, everyone is so complicated. I hope this works thank you 😊

This was so clear and helpful. Wondering if there's a way to rename the video file via WeTransfer before sending? I'm trying to send an edited video from my iphone, but iphone Photos app won't allow me to access or change the name of any videos. Thanks!

The only problem I find is it shuffles your images if there meant to be in a specific order. Can I fix this on a setting or are there any other sites I could use?

Do you know why my songs (Wave format) change into 1-2 mb less in size as soon as I upload them? Happened on box, dropbox and wetransfer but not from the Mac to a USB stick.. just seems weird and hopefully there's no loss in audio quality!

Would this work with recording a phone meeting and sending the file to the person you spoke with? Its now 2022 what app would you recommend for recording? I know I can use Zoom, but looking for other options for audio recording only. Thanx if you can help.

I got the We Transfer app. I went to the app and chose the file I wanted to download. The circle graphic began processing. It Started at around 8 percent then it eventually made it to 100 percent. However when I went to find the email, it wasn’t there. I must’ve missed a step somewhere or something. Do you think you can tell me what I need to do? It’s frustrating not being able to email large video files.
Thank you Dave.
