In my experience, when required to provide access to a large number of high resolution images, creating an FTP server,
with all the images stored on it, allows stakeholders to access and download at their convenience. This is a simple process
and the software is often open source. If you would like to discuss this further please contact me directly.
Hope that helps,

Subject: Image Delivery Service
We are now looking into improving online delivery to customers. These are usually large, hi-res images and often plenty of them. So the functionality would need to be similar to Dropbox or wetransfer.com.
Could anyone recommend the service they are using? Is it built in house or commercially available?
