Upload? why yes, the link trick I mentioned WOULD allow you to upload.
Let me explain this more thoroughly...
My web server (which I call "hive"), exists at a different location than
my desktop. On my desktop, I open Konqueror, and type in
"fish://myaccount@hive" in the address bar, which prompts me for login
credentials. Once that's done, I'm navigating the web server's
directories as if it were local (This is what FISH does for you.).
Instead of using FISH, I've also done the same thing for FTP.
(more info about FISH - it uses SSH to communicate with the computer in
question. Only works in Konqueror AFAIK.)
NOW, with that address in my address bar, I drag the address to my
desktop. Voila, quick shortcut to that location. When I come back to
it a few days later and click it, it opens a window to that location -
prompting me for login credentials as needed.
THEN, I can freely drag and drop my files to/from that location. IF
that location is a directory within my web folder, the act of dropping
the file there IS THE UPLOAD PROCESS, and that file is now available to
the general public (assuming I'm putting it in a publicly accessible
folder). I can now post a link to that file directly.
If that is still not suitable, then I have to assume that you are asking
about an upload into a web form. In which case there is no shortcut to
