Transfer image file from local to remote with sftp

Hi.
I have managed to transfer a file from remote to my raspberry pi, but I have the camera mounted on the Raspbien so I would like to transfer the image the other way.

I use this line:
Code:
sshpass -p 'PASSWORD' scp -- USER@ssh.servername.com:/www/cam/image.jpg /home/pi/shared/web/image.jpg

And your question is?

Do not use 'sshpass'. It is extremely unsafe. Use ssh keys. The web is littered with dozens of tutorials for it.

Yes, of course did I forget the question Smilie
The question is;
That code transfer the image from ftp-server to the raspberry pi, but I need it to go the other way.
It did not work switching places for the directory paths.

Any idea how to get it to transfer from my raspberry pi to the ftp-server?

This is used for a camera a few month's so it is not a security issue to use the sshpass.

I tryed this
Code:
sshpass -p 'PASSWORD' scp -- /home/pi/shared/web/image.jpg USER@ssh.servername.com:/www/cam/image.jpg

And it worked =)
