There are a number of different methods and services to send your images to us.
We recommend Wetransfer.com and if you click on this link you can send an image up to 2 gigabytes (that's about 2,000 megabytes) to us right now. It is a simple file delivery service that allows you to upload your files to wetransfer.com's servers, they will then email us a link so we can download them, they stay on their servers for 7 days. All you need to do is select your files, enter our email address, email@example.com as the recipient, enter your own email address and include a brief note of your details. Please also send a second detailed email to us with the full details of your order.
There are other similar services around, so feel free to use your favourite if you've used one before.
Others include Dropbox or yousendit.com or mailbigfile.com.
If you're going to send either a very large file or a lot of files, creating a CD or DVD and posting them to us could be the easiest option for you;

Please include a covering letter of your order with your disc.
Please do not send us memory cards / sticks from digital cameras or USB drives.
Most email applications and services will allow you to attach files of up to 20mb. If you're sending more than one file, it's usually easier to split the attachments up over a few emails.
File Types & Sizes
We recommend saving your images as either a Tiff or Photoshop PSD - a flattened version with no layers or adjustments layers please. PDFs are also suitable, especially for vector images - PDFs are preferred over native Illustrator files or EPS.
Images should be 300dpi (or higher) at the size you want them to be printed, images can be either RGB or CMYK, there's no need to convert from one to the other. If sending RGB images, we recommend using the Adobe RGB (1998) colour space.
If you're not sure if your image will print to the size want for your prints, please feel free to send us your images and we'll take a look and let you know the ideal size for printing.
Compression (Zip Files)
To make your files smaller, you might want to try 'zipping' or compressing the file or files. This creates a smaller file by compressing the files down, don't worry, it doesn't remove anything from the file or reduce the quality of your images.
On a Mac, you can right click (or ctrl + click) on any file or folder of files and click Compress "File/folder", this will create a new file with the same name but with a .zip extension. On a Windows PC, right click on a file and select Compressed (zipped) Folder from the Send To menu, again - this will create a new file with the same name but a .zip extention. The amount your files will be compressed will depend on the type and the contents of the file.
