Nowadays email limits have reached GBs. Torrents are also one important technology to share files easily.

Send several GBs of data to Friends using Podmailing
You could use 7zip to separate the file into many pieces, and e-mail them separately. Just google 7 zip if you don't have it, you could also google how to separate the files if you can't figure that out...
not very practical for larger files
Oh i know, im just throwing it out there, if the asker was really intent on sending the file through email, that's the only way to do it for a 1gb file. There are obviously better ways to send large files online, but through e-mail...that's really the only option for a file that large...
yeah i guess you're right. To send the file via email splitting it into
pieces is pretty much the only option.
There are a ways of accomplishing what you want. Only thing is, if you are planing to send pictures worth 1GB, your only option is to move them to a folder in your computer to sync or upload them somewhere. Regardless of what method/service you decide to use it will take some time depending on your upload speed and/or your computer speed.
The following services provide syncing between computers. I would say out the three following, dropbox is the more recognized. All of these three services provide an amount of space for free. The way they work is you open an account, install the software and move a folder with your pictures to it. Once that is done, you just install the software in any computer/phone/tablet you have and as long as your software is running the folder will be synced will the other computers. You can also send links by email and as long as the recipient has access to it, the recipient can see the pictures.
http://www.dropbox.com/ -- provides 2GB with free account but you can increase amount with referals and promotions.
https://www.sugarsync.com/ -- provides 5 GB with free account, you can increase with referals.
http://www.zumodrive.com/ -- provides 1 GB with free account, can be increase with referals.
https://spideroak.com/ -- provides 2GB with free account, can be increase with referals.
Another option is using skydrive. It can be installed with the windows live software provided by Windows. It is not compatible with Windows Xp, only with Vista/Windows 7. You can get more information on the following link:
The following is an online option where you upload the file and you get a link. You send the link by email and the other person downloads the content. If you use a service like this, I would advise you to split the files in smaller chunks, so that the upload goes faster. Hope it helps.
As far as I know the following limits apply:
Gmail 25MB per Mail
Yahoo! 10MB per Email
The safest way is to use one of the many online services for sharing files. Few examples:
