async onUploadImg(files: FileList, callback: (urls: string[]) => void) {
  const res = await Promise.all(
    Array.from(files).map((file) => {
      return new Promise((rev, rej) => {
        const form = new FormData();
        form.append('file', file);

          .post('/api/img/upload', form, {
            headers: {
              'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'
          .then((res) => rev(res))
          .catch((error) => rej(error));

  callback(res.map((item: any) => item.data.url));
