This would mean your users have at least FTP access to your server -> your users could upload malicious code to web accessible parts of your server and execute it via http -> you lose control of your server

answer: no, that's not possible. Non admins can't use the batch add tool

From the documentation:

Giving FTP-access to other users can pose a serious security threat, this is why batch-add is only available for the coppermine gallery admin.
