I am trying to help my mother set up Digikam to allow her to upload some of her
album photos to the ftp area on www.photobox.co.uk
(ftp://ftp.photobox.com). This is her preferred site for printing photos.

I am slightly surprised to discover that KIPI and Digikam between them do not
seem to be able to to do this. Using a separate FTP client is not an option for
her (or other non-technical users).

The basic use cases are something like:

1/ <Main flow>: Specify the ftp URL, username and password, path and any other
details required to identify a target site and save them with a name for
subsequent recall and use (probably need to incorporate KWalletManager or
suchlike to manage the passwords).

2/ <Main flow>: identify one or more images or albums (if it/they don't exist,
create folders with the album names) from a users' collection and upload the
images into the folders on the specified ftp site, from the list of saved sites
created from use case 1.
2.1/ <Alternate flow>: specify a new folder name to be created to put the
selection of images or albums in.
