XF 1.0 How to add an smileys set

Sure it is a stupid question, but i don't know how can i add an smileys set. Can it do via ftp or have i to do it manually one per one via control panel?
Why it such a hassle just to upload smilies?
Sorry I don't want to compare to other forum system but to configure manually like this is not what I'm thinking of about user friendly board management.
