I live quite a distance away from my family. All of us take lots of pictures, and sending them through a Winzip file is the best and easiest way to do it. It not only compresses your files - it tucks them away for safekeeping! I also do a little work from my home, and packing everything up neatly and sending it in a Winzip file is the only way to go. Sometimes you have to explain to the person on the receiving end how to go about extracting the files, but that may be the only drawback. Usually, once they "get" it, they don't have any more trouble figuring it out.

Couldn't live without Winzip

I live quite a distance away from my family. All of us take lots of pictures, and sending them through a Winzip file is the best and easiest way to do it.

Winzip is a must have program for anyone who works with a lot of files and file formats. The built-in compression utility in Windows' latest operating systems handle zip files just fine but they don't work with .rar and other common formats. Winzip works with any format I've ever had to use and it works well.

Winzip also works better to compress files as it creates a smaller file than the Windows standard utility does. When working with a lot of large files, this can really make a big difference in performance and storage space on your workstation.
