Servimg tutorial
:?:  Tutorial

This little tutorial will help you to better understand the functionalities of this service and attempt to answer your questions. Hosted Images Icon_wink

What is Servimg?

Servimg is an image host as there are others on the Net. It can host images of maximum size 2MB formats, bmp, gif, png, jpg and tif.

Unlike some hostings, the registration to Servimg is automatically initiated once you have selected "Host an Image" from the Menu bar when preparing a post.  This option is opposed to clicking "Insert Image", which allows you to post an image from somewhere else on the internet.  This is explained in detail in the following sections.

This feature is primarily for those who don't have their own image hosting such as IMGUR set up but have a picture on their computer they would like to upload.

The nice feature about hosting images on Servimg is that you have all your images saved in one place, which you can then access later for projects or set them into your Forum Personal Gallery (more on that in another section). This feature keeps you from searching for an image and they are never lost. To access your images, go to and use the email and password you used to register on the forums.  If you wish, you can change the password but your email will need to remain the same for it to work.

There are two ways to post an image.  When you reply or start a topic, you will see on the far left of the top menu that appears, two picture icons.  Hover over each and the results are:

1.  Host an Image.  This is the Servimg hosting service.  Simply upload your image and save.  Toggle the icon again and it will disappear.  Give the server a chance to operate and resize your image.  This may take just a few minutes but it will appear depending on bandwidth traffic.  Now your image is hosted and saved for when you want to use it again.

2.  Insert an Image.  This is for attaching internet photos to your post that you will not be hosting.  Keep in mind that these are outside sources and at the mercy of the server that hosts them.  You can also use your personal image storage spaces if you wish such as IMGUR, PhotoBucket and others.  Simply enter the direct URL link and the forum will resize it for you, giving the user the chance to enlarge the image if they need to do so.

For those that need them, the full technical details on Servimg is explained below.


Registration to Servimg

Registration to the Forums is required to use the service.  Once registered, you will be able to store images.  Guest storage is not available.
A tool has been developed to create an account on Servimg from this forum automatically.  This tool creates an account using the email and password you used to register on the forum. There is no risk with security and you can use this tool without fear that anyone can access your account, including an Admin.
From the moment Servimg or your account is established it is not attached to your account on the forum. This means that any change password or email in the forum will not change your account Servimg.

If for security reasons you do not want to use this tool, you can create an account manually on the site of Servimg. We advise you in this case to use the same e-mail address as the one of your forum as you will no longer have the window asking you the password for the import of the account.

Once you have an account you can host images on it. These images will be accessible only by the creator of the account, the founder and other members of the forum will not be able to access your account Servimg.

Using Servimg

When you answer, or you create a new topic, you have a link to Servimg. When you click on this link opens a new page, and there are two possibilities:

You have never created an account on Servimg or your emails to the forum and Servimg are different:
In that case a message ask you to import your forum in Servimg, then you just have to enter the password that you use on the forum and validate. Your account is created and you can use Servimg using your email address and password for the forum.

You have an account with the same Servimg email:
In this case, if you are not logged on Servimg you must log to host an image.
If you are already logged on Servimg to go to the form sends images. You just choose your image and the form to verify that your image is hosted.
Once an image is hosted you get links to the image. The links to be used for the forums are those of the BBcode.

How does Servimg work

On the site you can store images via the link "Send a picture" from the menu. This link will take you to the sending images form.
The "My Account" link allows you to change your personal information at any time.
The link "My Pictures" allows you to access your gallery. In this gallery you can see the pictures that you have already hosted.

Categories management

In Servimg you have the possibility to create categories to store your images. For example, you can make categories "landscape", "car", "manga", ... tout ce que vous Anything you want within the limits of maximum 32 categories.
Your categories at the top with an image file. When you walk into a class a button "Delete this category" appears in the form of new category, it allows you to delete category.
When you delete a category all images it contains are displaced in the root folder.

Showing images

In the middle of the page you list your photos with a miniature for each image. The "real size" can open the preview to the real size of the image in a new window.
"Links" provides access to the list of links and Html BBcode of the image.
The "Delete" and "Move" buttons let you delete or move the selected images.

At the bottom of page hosting the form is still there and can send an image in the category you are looking at.

The trash is a special category that contains the images you want to delete. You can then move the images to another category or restore them to their original categories.
