How to use WeTransfer - A Short Guide
This program is used for uploading your AV entries. It will take time to do its job – your files are large, so allow around 15 minutes for it to transfer your chosen file(s).
Go to the WeTransfer site: https://wetransfer.com
Click on the ‘I agree’ button on the page to enter the working bit of the site.
You will be offered a box that allows you to “add your files” – one at a time please and keep them under 2Gb for free transfers. You do not need to take up the WeTransfer Plus offer. Click on the blue + button, navigate to your folder and choose the file you wish to transfer. You will get a large blue infinity icon ‘wiggling’ while the file is attached to the program – when fully attached and ready to go you will be advised by the plus icon that you have added your file – and the size of that file.
Now enter the email address you wish to send the file to [eg firstname.lastname@example.org], then your email address and if you wish, a message. For club competitions this should be an identifier for the file – title and your name plus anything else required.
Then click on the “Transfer” button……..and wait……… until the file is transferred. You get a ‘twiddly-circle’ to inform you how your file is transferring. Then is tells you “you’re done” when completed.
You will receive an email to confirm that it is sent to the recipient – and they get an email to tell them it is waiting for them to download – within a stated period before files are deleted.
This really is an idiot-proof system that is well thought out and simple to use. If you decide to use it for your files to friends and relatives, you can also send still images – just stay within the 2Gb allowance for a freebie.
