How can i upload an image to server directory directly form iOS using FTP

I've searching a lot on how to upload images from my camera roll to a server directory and i didn't found anything!So i've downloaded the sample code from Apple(SimpleFTPSample),and i took these code bellow:

- (void)_startSend:(NSString *)filePath
BOOL success;
NSURL * url;
CFWriteStreamRef ftpStream;

assert(filePath != nil);
assert([[NSFileManager defaultManager] fileExistsAtPath:filePath]);
assert( [filePath.pathExtension isEqual:@"png"] || [filePath.pathExtension isEqual:@"jpg"] );

assert(self.networkStream == nil); // don't tap send twice in a row!
assert(self.fileStream == nil); // ditto

// First get and check the URL.

url = [[AppDelegate sharedAppDelegate] smartURLForString:self.urlText.text];
success = (url != nil);

if (success) {
// Add the last part of the file name to the end of the URL to form the final
// URL that we're going to put to.

url = [NSMakeCollectable(
CFURLCreateCopyAppendingPathComponent(NULL, (CFURLRef) url, (CFStringRef) [filePath lastPathComponent], false)
) autorelease];
success = (url != nil);

// If the URL is bogus, let the user know. Otherwise kick off the connection.

if ( ! success) {
self.statusLabel.text = @"Invalid URL";
} else {

// Open a stream for the file we're going to send. We do not open this stream;
// NSURLConnection will do it for us.

self.fileStream = [NSInputStream inputStreamWithFileAtPath:filePath];
assert(self.fileStream != nil);

[self.fileStream open];

// Open a CFFTPStream for the URL.

ftpStream = CFWriteStreamCreateWithFTPURL(NULL, (CFURLRef) url);
assert(ftpStream != NULL);

self.networkStream = (NSOutputStream *) ftpStream;

if (self.usernameText.text.length != 0) {
#pragma unused (success) //Adding this to appease the static analyzer.
success = [self.networkStream setProperty:self.usernameText.text forKey:(id)kCFStreamPropertyFTPUserName];
success = [self.networkStream setProperty:self.passwordText.text forKey:(id)kCFStreamPropertyFTPPassword];

self.networkStream.delegate = self;
[self.networkStream scheduleInRunLoop:[NSRunLoop currentRunLoop] forMode:NSDefaultRunLoopMode];
[self.networkStream open];

// Have to release ftpStream to balance out the create. self.networkStream
// has retained this for our persistent use.


// Tell the UI we're sending.

[self _sendDidStart];

Those action perform the upload,but just for images which are inside my project folder.So how can upload an image that i've selected from my camera roll?

NOTICE:I've already create an UIImageView and made it display an image from camera roll,as normal,but how can upload those image which is displayed in the UIImageView


download these library .

how to use it:

#import "NSData+Base64.h"
//prepare the image
NSData *imageData = UIImageJPEGRepresentation(myImageView.image, 1.0);
myImageView.image = [UIImage imageWithData:imageData];    
NSString *myImageAsString = [imageData base64EncodedString];

you can now post myImageAsString to server.. process the myImageAsString data in your web script. if you want to use php,this might help you..

This is how i manage the image in my web server.

            $imagestring = "your posted NSString from iphone";
            $file_name = 'myImage.jpg';
            $img = imagecreatefromstring(base64_decode($imagestring));
           if($img != false)
             imagejpeg($img, '../images/comprofiler/gallery/'.$file_name);
