    Hi
    i have a question

    i have an ftp service

    i upload photos inside with filezilla

    may i create a limited account inside my ftp space ,with a user and password to share some photos with my friends

    the point is that often i take photos of my friends
    and i would like for example that my friend could watch only her photos (photo with her)

    may i do it? if yes how? i guess filezilla is not enough

    thanks in advance

    Do you have a control panel with your FTP service? If so, create other user accounts and give them a subdirectory so you have:

    /photos
    /photos/bob/
    /photos/fred/

    Then each user has access only to their own directory. Otherwise can you execute PHP? You could make a simple script with user/pass which redirects them to only the content they are allowed to view.

    Hard to say without knowing what options your service has.
