Script to emulate FTP for Windows & Mac - plus upload from form

I need a solution for a printing company -  they need to upload large files via a web browser using both Macs and PCs.  

I've outlined some of our needs below.  

I've spend two days searching through HotScripts and PHP Resource Index and I can't find any solution.  Seems like 90% of the Upload Form and/or File Management scripts listed do not have any customer service or support - which I find out after I've wasted time installing the script.  

For example, I've already purchased, installed and presented to my client an application called EzUpload -  http://www.scriptscenter.com  

Unfortunately, now my client wants to customize the notification email messages - I don't know how to code the PHP and I can't get any help from the script company.  I emailed them two days ago and never heard back.  I only paid $39 for the script ... but I've had gladly paid more rather than spending two or three days trying to get support.

It is probably possible to modify the Ezupload script - in fact I spent four hours today just reading the code trying to figure out how to customize the notification emails.  It could take me weeks to figure something out.

Here is what we need:
1.  Everything must work from a Local PC as well as Local MAC.
2.  Need to upload large files from a web form.  Send notification to user and administrator in HTML with name of file uploaded, etc.
3.  Emulate an FTP via a web browser.

Does anyone know of a script that would do this?  And/or can you recommend a company or web site that has a variety of PHP scripts?  A company that has good customer support?

Hope you can help me.  I'm really stuck in a bad spot.

Dear Promethyl - good script, but we need to upload files like Adobe Illustrator *.ai - not just image files.

Leaving this question open until Monday to see if anyone else can help.

I'm so surprised as I'd think this is a very common task - "file sharing via browser for graphics industry across the internet via mac and/or pc".  Maybe everyone is using an FTP client like CuteFTP.


Thanks, April
There are a number of possible uploader AX controls. Not all of them deal with images.  You just need one to upload large files.
PS: Most people share using email. -=) Or change their upload limit in their PHP configs. =-)(

I take it the server is PHP. What did you mean by customize the emails?  Might be really easy if we get you to cut and paste the lines surrounding mail(). *(Hint: search "mail" using START-F in your directory)
