How create Zip from cpanel

I use cPanel.  I want a convenient way to zip the contents of a directory for downloading to local drive.  It's a directory with several subdirectories containing many graphics files each, so it's inconvenient to FTP without zipping.

I know I can use the exec() command from php and the Linux "zip" routine...but isn't there an easier, faster way?

I was hoping for something a little simpler.  Maybe it doesn't exist.
