With its auto-resume functionality, fast upload speeds, and easy-to-use interface, our YouSendIt Express application makes sending files and folders a breeze! This week, I wanted to share a small but useful feature you can utilize in YouSendIt Express – the ability to drag and drop files directly into the application.
If you aren’t already using YouSendIt Express, you can download it here.
Drag and Drop
Once you have downloaded and installed the application, open YouSendIt Express and log into your account.
When logged in, you can drag and drop files and/or folders directly from your desktop into YouSendIt Express. Below shows a folder on my desktop named Sample Pictures dragged and dropped directly into YouSendIt Express:
If I decided I wanted to upload a single file from within the Sample Pictures folder, I simply open the folder, selected which image I want to send, then drag and drop it into YouSendIt Express. In the photo below, I chose to upload Koala.jpg:
For Mac users, it’s just as easy to use this feature. To add an attachment, Mac users can simply drag and drop right into the Express icon that shows up in the dock:
Nice and simple, right? Dragging and dropping could definitely save you a few clicks here and there when selecting items to upload.
If you have any thoughts you’d like to share about this feature, please feel free to do so in this thread. Thanks!

Perfect this seems to be a bit more intuitive and makes uploading multiple files easier, especially when working with lots of raw images...one can lose track of which photo has already been sent.

Now that I downloaded Mountain Lion on my Mac, I cannot drag drop files onto YOU SEND IT EXPRESS. Is this a particualr problem with other mac users? Do I need to reinstall/

Hi firesite! There is a known issue with using YouSendIt Express in Mountain Lion - when you select the files you intend to send, their filenames will not appear before you send them. You can still send files, you just won't see a list of filenames you've selected before they start uploading. Sorry for the confusion. We are working on fixing this issue.
