    Just this side of insanity (Minneapolis)
    Anyone know of a good upload tool I can add to my website for low-tech clients who need to send me photos? There will be enough traffic that doing this via email is out of the question. Most won't even know what FTP stands for, so that isn't an option either.

    Ideally, I'd love for these to land on my server, but if it's necessary to push them elsewhere for me to download after the fact, that's acceptable (depending on price).

    Just ran across UploadThingy and am wondering what else might be out there (or if I got lucky and hit the best option right out of the gate).

    Thanks in advance for your opinions!

    Are you comfortable working with a PHP/SQL script for this? I might have a solution if you are okay going that route.

    You could try JotForm. All you need to do is embed the html source code or their script into your webpage. They have a free plan that allows 100mb of online storage and can link to your dropbox. I use it for a lot of my HTML sites that need a contact form.

    A free solution (up to 2gb) would be to use Dropbox with Filestork.
    Or you could try Airdropper (which can also integrate with Dropbox)
