Quote from a customer:

"We're excited about the new version, especially the updated user interface and the ability to email a file link to clients. The new SeeFile UI is efficient in its use of screen real estate and easy to understand. We're even able to drag and drop files directly from Adobe Bridge to upload them to SeeFile, which has made it quick to train photo assistants without wasting a lot of time. The developers of SeeFile appear to have listened to studio photographers and then created a complete solution that fits into a professional workflow." (Read more).
