Accessing portfolio images post shoot

I was just wondering if any other photographers out there allow on-line access for models to see and download their portfolio images.
 
In the past I have put up some zipped files, which meant the model had to download the whole zip file and I know one or two guys have some file sharing utils that allow a 48 hour window for people to download the images / zip but I thinking long term when people delete or lose images and want to recover them.
 
CD and DVD get damaged and lost even if they do find their way in the mail system before anyone suggests that.

ZIP file on dropbox of watermarked (& low res) images.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I tend to give them a link to a pdf file I create. I used to send zips but found they would just put unedited pics up

I put up a private web gallery with low res images (800 max width/height) with a large 50% transparent PROOF watermark. Oh, I cull the ones I think are poor, bad and really bad first - so the gallery is usually quite small

Drop-box that was the name, couldn’t remember it, but no need for that as the girl tend to pick out the images before they leave me, so it is all hi-res with me Red

I am using soothing similarly that that now but the can download their images with the usual watermark, where everyone else downloads images with a massive watermark. And I can select who get access to what images etc.

+1, except that I don't bother to zip them: I remind models that I won't keep their pics on DB for ever, so they need to donwload them and back them up themselves,

I using Pixaria, that way I can check who download what, when and how many time plus control their access, it also nice is it has a bit more of that professional appeal.

In the past I done everything you guy have suggested (apart from drop box) but now at least is a model does download or get back to you the images are there for all models and clients to look at, plus the model can get them at a later date without hassling you to re-upload the zip.

It gives the model the ability to cherry pick after retouching, but I am only using this as I had the software for my own image bank.
