How To Upload Your Photos

Post by NaomiM on March 10th 2017, 6:55 pm

Update, Servimg has added an extra drop down list for resizing photos before uploading. Currently it says ‘No’ but you need to scroll through and select 800 px width (for forums), otherwise your photos will be too large to fit on the page

Please Note: Forum members might not click on links if you use an external photo hosting site for your photos, because we have found unsavoury adverts and pornography displayed on some foreign websites, and because some websites automatically delete photos if they are not viewed regularly and so we lose that important reference material on this forum, so please use our photo hosting facility instead.

New photo hosting format -

Click photo hosting icon
Click Select Files and choose the photos you want to upload from your photo albums
Click Send all
Click Insert all

This will upload all the photos in the large format.
If you want thumbnail sized photos instead, then choose the third URL string on each photo (one at a time). This will put it in a separate box. Highlight it and choose Select All and then Copy. Then move to the comment box and click Paste. Then click the photo hosting icon again and click OK on the box to close it and select the next URL string and repeat.
Click Preview to double check it's all uploaded successfully before clicking Send.

Edited to add: They've upgraded the photo hosting facility, so if, after uploading your photos, you click any of the icons to the left of the three photo URLs it will automatically paste that URL string in the comment box. You can click them without having to Preview each time, although sometimes you have to re-position the cursor in the comment box because it doesn't always load the photo if there are a lot of them.

Yes, but it depends on the phone. The screenshots above were taken from my iPhone. You will need access to a photo album on your phone; sometimes that's not enabled.

To add, I use the Classic Version of the website on my phone, rather than the Mobile version. I don't know if that makes a difference.
Mobile/Classic version switching facility can be found at the very bottom of the page.

Please note that while New Members can post photos from their camera roll/albums, they cannot post links to online photo albums such as Photobucket and Flickr because of an automated anti-spam 7 day block on posting Links to external websites and emails. In such cases you will see this message -



If you are having problems uploading photos please ask a Moderator for help.

You may experience n intermittent fault on the photo hosting facility where it asks you for your password before you can use it. Just use your 20thCenturyForum password and, if you still have problems, double check the first letter is lower case. I can only apologise for the inconvenience; it happens to me too.

Please note, if you are posting links to photos uploaded on an external photo hosting site, some sites have inappropriate advertising on them and/or viruses. In such instances the post will be deleted and you will be asked to use our photo hosting site or a Clean site such as Flickr.
Please be aware that some photo hosting sites will delete old content if it is not viewed within a certain time limit, or if your subscription lapses.

Yes, it should be. I use an iPhone most of the time because my photos are on it and it's far easier than downloading them to a laptop first. I use the Classic Site on my iPhone rather than the Mobile version of the forum, so you should see the same layout for uploading photos to the groups that you see on the Computer

Thanks Naomi. I know that on occasions I've tried but the 'load photos' window doesn't come up. I use the classic site on my mobile anyway. I'll have another go.

Latest change to the photo hosting site: resizing photos -
Where it says No, on the bar between URL and Send All, Select 800 px width (for forums) from the drop down list before hitting Send All.

It might only be temporary. Seems like they’ve been playing with the format recently which has resulted in some bugs; they might change it back to default for forums
