There are several benefits of using Google Drive to supply images and page text to your website designer:
- Easy sharing: With Google Drive, you can easily share files and folders with others, including your website designer. This means that you can provide the Innovast creative team with all the images and text we’ll need in one place without having to send them in multiple emails or attachments.
- Real-time collaboration: Google Drive allows you and your website designer to collaborate in real time on the same document, which can be very useful for making changes and revisions. This can save a lot of time and effort compared to sending files back and forth via email.
- Cloud storage: Google Drive is a cloud-based storage service, which means that your files and folders are stored online and can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. This can be very useful if you need to work on your website from multiple locations or if you need to share files with others who are not in the same physical location.
- Automatic syncing: If you install the Google Drive app on your computer or mobile device, any changes you make to your files or folders will be automatically synced to the cloud. This ensures that you always have the latest version of your files, no matter where you are.
- Integration with other Google services: Google Drive is integrated with other Google services, such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. This means that you can easily create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations and then share them with your website designer.
Overall, using Google Drive to supply images and page text to a website designer can be a very efficient and convenient way to collaborate on your website project. It allows you to easily share files, collaborate in real-time, and access your files from anywhere, which can save time and effort and help ensure that your website project is completed successfully.
Here’s a step-by-step process for creating a folder on Google Drive, setting permissions, adding files and images, and sharing the folder:
- Sign in to your Google Drive account. (https://www.google.com/drive) If you don’t have one, you can create one for free.
- Once you’re logged in, click on the “New” button on the left-hand side of the screen.
- Select “Folder” from the dropdown menu.
- Name your folder and click “Create.”
- To set permissions for who can access the folder, right-click on the folder and select “Share.”
- In the “Share with people and groups” box, you can add the email addresses of the people you want to share the folder with. You can also choose what level of access they have to the folder – for example, whether they can edit files or just view them.
- Click “Send” to share the folder with the selected people.
- To add files or images to the folder, simply drag and drop them into the folder from your computer. You can also click the “New” button and select “File upload” to upload files that way.
- To share the folder with others, you can either give them the link to the folder (which you can get by right-clicking on the folder and selecting “Get link”) or by sharing the folder with their email address as described in step 6.
That’s it! You’ve successfully created a folder on Google Drive, set permissions for who can access it, and added files and images to it.
