What do you like best?
• Easy to share download links with clients to access design files. I use this on a weekly basis with clients, vendors, and coworkers.
• Easy to find images I need - especially if keywords are properly filled out. Saves a lot of time from not having to search through folders upon folders that only take up room on your computer.
• No maximum size restrictions.
• Easy to navigate with the folder structures (if client has organized properly.. ha).
• Responsive design incase I need to view or download something on my phone.
What do you dislike?
• Would like to be able to upload a customized folder thumbnail image without having to choose from images inside the folder - just so I can customize my IR as much as possible. :-)

Sign up for a demo!
It may be intimidating to see at first, but it's really easy to use once familiar.
The site has changed a lot over the last 5 years, I could almost use a demo myself to keep updated with all the new features and options.
Image Relay really tries to keep up with growing trends to keep their interface looking current and polished. And new features are always being added to meet user demands. It really is a one stop shop for asset management and storage.
Plus, the staff is friendly and helpful. They really care about their customers. :-)
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Most FTP sites have a maximum size restrictions for sending files - or you need an account to download them. Image Relay makes it easy to share with ANYONE and all they have to do is press the link.
Saves room on my computer by keeping files off of it. And I can access files from any computer.
We use IR will all of our main clients and it's helpful to have all assets in one place.
Other clients are still using other forms of FTP sites and I find them not as easy to navigate. Too many steps involved in getting to your final destination.
I like that you can share collections and the receiver doesn't HAVE to have a Image Relay account to be able to view them.
