Sending a Standard Messenger

A very useful feature of DF Studio is the ability to share images with clients and collaborators without the use of direct login credentials. A user can send a Messenger to a client, coworker, or an approving party in order to obtain approvals from or share files with those recipients. It is recommended that account holders communicate with outside parties with messengers to avoid giving those individuals direct access to  the account. A Messenger is delivered in the form of an email with an enclosed link.

To begin the process of sending a Messenger, select your images and then click Send to open the Messenger Wizard.
