Unfortunately, the majority of keyservers do not allow photos.
Luckily, unlike the multiple-subkeys-ate-my-key bug, it doesn't cause
any harm.  Instead, it will just not accept the photo part of the key.

All pks keyservers (a la "", "", etc.) do
not accept photo IDs.

All LDAP keyservers (ldap:// do allow them.

I don't know offhand about the Cryptnet and Openkeyserver servers.
