FTP them into a gallery or downloadable file. Alternatives include a site like Zenfolio for example where you can create password protected galleries for clients to download what they like from.

They don't have to sign up.  You have a public folder.  Create a public link for each image...unless you're giving them 200.

That's what I do. I usually .zip photos up into 150mb packets and upload them to my server. Easy/Peasy

I use pictures pro on my web site with private gallery for clients.

I just ftp them up there and then the clients can view them and provide feedback or proofing

They will need to sign up if you're doing the virtual shared folder option. You can also just upload a zip and share a public link for it. They just get a screen with a 'download' button, no need to sign up for anything.

You do not have to sign up for service.  I have used DB for a while know to deliver full res images..... No account needed by your customer.

WeTransfer.com - free and fast!

If you use zip folders you can email it from any email account. The problem is your client or whomever may not know how to open it...

I have a private gallery on my site, I give them the link and password, they can then choose what ones they want and I just then zip them up, put them on my FTP and give them the link.

Or use dropbox for events.
