"tar" is also an option. You can also use tar to split the file into smaller pieces for easier
upload. Additionally, being that the jpeg images are already compressed you won't gain
much by compressing them again with zip etc. You will of course need shell access on your
destination server to un-tar the files/directories into their proper locations.
