Using CHDK to get snapshots and upload to a website?

Hi there, I am looking the way to use a Canon camera withh chdk and take a photo every 5 minutes and upload to a website. I do not want to use a webcam because I need high quality photos.

Seems something pretty straigth forward, but I have found no one doing this.

Does anyone knows of an easy way to do what I want?, any hints will be apperciated.

Regards
Salva

The only way to do this with CHDK would be the very experimental PTP support, or to just use CHDK for the intervalometer script and get the pictures off the camera using something else. Some (mostly older) canon cameras support remote capture with programs based on the canon SDK. Another option is eyefi http://www.eye.fi/

See http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,4338.0.html for the PTP interface
Don't forget what the H stands for.
