Drum roll please...
Well that's it guys, with a little extension to the original competition closure date, the paper frog competition is officially closed for entries. We are, even as you read, assessing the entries with a critical eye... good luck and a big thank you to all who entered.
As soon as the winner is announced, you will of course be the first to know. Well technically the winner will be the first to know and receive a box of pinkfrog goodies, but you will definitely be the second to know... we promise!
Talking of boxes... (smooth link huh?) – It has come to my notice that a great many of you, are, unaware of the glories of Dropbox...
Dropbox has been around for a number of years and I for one am very grateful to it for making my life a little easier. The basic function of this FREE application, is that it facilitates the easy sharing and moving of large files, without clogging up your in-box or your system. Once you register, which doesn't take long at all, you will have an online secure area where you can store files. You can create folders and sub-folders, and invite friends/clients/associates to share them.
Once you have uploaded a file to an area on Dropbox, it can be copied out by whoever you invite and enable you to send large files quickly without risk of them going astray on email or being too large to be emailed in the first place.
All people who share a specific folder are alerted when additions or changes are made to the content of that folder which means that you are always kept in the loop.
What's more, the more people you invite, the more storage space you earn yourself – very cool!
So go on, have a go, it's FREE, it's easy and it's very, very useful. We love it.
You can find out more about Dropbox by going onto the Dropbox website: Dropbox.com
As always, we are keen to receive images of any creations, frog or otherwise that you feel inclined to send us, so please don't let the competition closure stop you.
