Smith Micro Software’s StuffIt Deluxe 16 for Mac sports Cloud Services integration, a new cloud-based file transfer feature that lets users send large files without the dealing with email attachments or FTP. 

With the new release, more than 16 million StuffIt users can share photos, videos, music and more using cloud storage services, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and SendStuffNow. StuffIt Archive Manager is now more efficient with a new QuickLook search feature; streamlined navigation helps users quickly open, expand, create, verify, and schedule archiving, according to the folks at Smith Micro.

StuffIt provides patented compression methods for pixel-perfect compression of image files, audio files, PDFs and more. It works with virtually all file types and compression formats to ensure that photos, music, videos, PowerPoint presentations and other large files are shared or stored securely for personal or professional needs. StuffIt Deluxe 16 eliminates the manual burden of sharing files by automatically uploading them directly to the user’s favorite cloud-based file transfer account via a new StuffIt Destinations feature.

Creative professionals such as advertising executives, graphic designers and photographers can use StuffIt to prevent lengthy delays in sending large files, reduce the risk of losing valuable information, and ensure confidential data is protected. For independent contractors and small firms, bandwidth is an important cost element that drives the economics of their businesses. A 30% reduction in package size results in significant bandwidth savings.
