You can drag from digikam to any place that accepts drags like you do from a 
filesystem browser. The problem (which I also encounter sometimes) is that 
often e.g. web upload services implemented in Java dont accept normal drags.

Btw, it would a pretty simple job for a KIPI plugin to "Create folder with 
symlinks" of the current (virtual) album in digikam.
