This small Python 3.X program generates an HTML page to view a folder of images — inline in the page, by links in the page, and by an automatically-created and linked zipfile of the photos — and then transfers the photos and generated zipfile and HTML page to a site folder by FTP. This is a prime example of the sorts of tactical roles that Python excels at, though it can also be used for larger-scale strategic work. See the main script's docstring and other items below for usage details.
