Share file via SSH/SCP or SMB/CIFS (Gallery or other)

Is it possible to share photos from the Gallery app also via SCP/SSH or SMB/CIFS? Or even better, can I synchronize a directory on my Jolla with some remote file system using SCP/SSH or SMB/CIFS? Even one-way sync would do, preferably unattended, inoify/fanotify-based.

I mostly use e-mail for sending photos to myself, but some videos are too large to fit the SIZE limits of my SMTP server.

No - I would like to have a "SCP" or "SMB" option in the "Bluetooth/Email/MMS/Add account" menu in Gallery. At the very least, I would like to have an easy way how to initiate transfer from Jolla from wherever I am, not in developer mode over the USB cable, initiated from the desktop computer.

well you can use ssh/sftp over wifi as well without needing a usb connection. another way might be to use a file manager and a (local) cloud or webdav server

Well, there is WebDAV, ownCloud and Dropbox support in Cargo Dock/Cargo Dock Root, and there is also Box,OneDrive and Google Drive in FileCase from OpenRepos. Maybe one of those could work good enough?

Yes, Cargo Dock with WebDAV is what I am looking at right now. I'd rather not use "public clouds" at all. WebDAV is a "lesser evil" - it still has a "server", but at least it can be my own one. The ultimate goal is to be able to share the photos (or whatever) from Jolla to the laptop in the same network or to my home computer from wherever I am.

Anyway - can more items be added to the share pulley menu in Gallery? Dedicated file manager is (almost) OK, but it is not accessible directly from the Camera app. One of my use cases is to take a photo and send it for further processing to myself or to one of my colleagues, preferably without the public cloud.
