Just make sure you have the I-797 (Receipt number and Case Type) and all your passport details to hand before calling.
Hello Nickre2000. I'm having the same problem. My visa appointment is next week and i'm getting a bit worried about this photo stuff. How did you take your Photograoh? Can you use passport styles photographs?

You can also call a US number and pay a flat $16 to make the appointment:

"Nonimmigrant Visa Appointment Line - 09042-450-100 (calls cost £1.20 per min); callers from within the United States - 1 -866-3823589 (calls charged at $16)"

Never thought of doing that. Better still, sign up for google voice (set your language to en_US) and then ring the US number for *free* from the UK!

I believe Google voice does an IP validation (at sign-up), but Skype will get you to the same place. You don't pay the $16 until you get through to a real person...

You may be right, I probably signed up when I was on a VPN connection to my office in the States. But then the call number box disappeared until I changed my language to en_US.

Haha sorry to laugh but I remember the DS-160.. couldn't get the photo validated worth crap. Once I got it validated it looked like utter bs .
I just made sure to bring with me an extra set of photos to the embassy. They didn't even look twice at it lol.
