Set file types not to transfer in FileZilla

Hi all,

Is it possible to set a restriction as to what file types FileZilla uploads??

The reason why I ask is mainly due to the following scenario.

I upload a lot of folders containing images only using FileZilla to ftp clients. The issue is FileZilla will automatically upload the useless Thumbs.db file that Windows creates in the directory. If not deleted off the server this file cause issues with automatic gallery creation. Is there any way of preventing FileZilla from uploading this file??

Also it would be nice to restrict other file types as well such as .psd and .fla files. that way I can upload complete directories without uploading my source files.

Any suggestions or workarounds to achieve this or something similar would be fantastic.

Just in case that forum goes down you can achieve what I wanted by using filters.
