We recently talked with Dropbox Pro user Janelle Sing, who has quite the career. She’s head designer at Soludos, does artwork for Simon Miller jeans, and creates digital illustrations for an iPad app called Paper.

And she’s making it happen — juggling demanding roles as a designer, fashion illustrator, and contractor for a mobile app company — with the help of Dropbox Pro.
Say you’re in the middle of booking a flight and you want to double-check that you have the right dates, or you’re about to publish a blog post and you want to confirm with a coworker that an image is being displayed correctly.

Whether you’re at home or at work, sending a file to someone else is normally a simple task. But what happens when you need to send a large file?

Try using shared folders and links in Dropbox Pro to wrangle files, stay organized, and keep your clients happy.
