Clint.

Since you kindly asked. None really. But if you have a lot, maybe it would be a good idea to change them now and again, rather than leave them up all the time - 350 would be a wow too much I think!

Just one point though. Could you alter the resolution to 640 x 480? The current spread is too large for the page.

This was taken at 209 AFS WestonZoyland. The pilots are not a specialist aerobatic team, just three instructors posing the aircraft for a station Xmas card.

Here is a go at posting the now well worn picture of a Valiant taking fuel from a Vixen as mentioned in the Military Aviators forum.http://img46.photobucket.com/albums/...ield/Vixen.jpg




Click the 'Edit' box above and you'll see the difference between our two links.
For pics to display, links have to be like mine.
I've left yours in place so you can see the difference, for future reference.

Interesting photograph.

Heliport


Thanks

Sorry DamienB, as I understand it, the rules had already been made very clear - I do realise your desire to maintain your copyright and I also appreciate your talent - but then again it does rather seem that you've had a great deal of free publicity via PPRuNe and plenty of "in the know" adulation from a host of seriously well connected Aerophiles - and which appears to have led to publication in at least one major aeronautical journal and perhaps other Aviation publications...

Count your blessings - if you wish to copyright your pics, then why not do so with your name, not your website - and in a manner where Photoshop "experts" like me can't edit it out...! Not that I would of course, but I could do quite easily...

Mods: any chance of a sticky to outline the rules, and also how to digitally prepare pics fit for "PPRuNe" publication...

Sorry if this seems a grumpy post, but AHN is far and away the best forum on PPRuNe (IMHO) and has always been so amicable... and I am humbled by those I debate with!

Edited to say- yeek! Someone edited/deleted the contribution I was replying to while I was posting - feel free to delete/edit mine if appropriate!

Good suggestion.

You can not post pics/images direct from your hard disk.
The image must be on a web page somewhere. (But see note below.)

If the image is on a website, you can post a link so that it appears in your post, but you need the full 'URL' (web address) of the image.

If the picture is not on your own own website, to find the 'url':
Right-click on the image
Select 'properties'
Highlight and copy the [url]. Always highlight from the start of the address to make sure you get the full address - which will usually end with 'gif' or 'jpg'.

Copy the full URL into your post, and put [I M G] in front of the address and [/I M G] after. NB: I've put spaces between the letters so the software doesn't think I'm trying to post an image. Do not put spaces when you do it.


Picture Size
800x600 pixels (maximum),
72 dpi resolution (Although the quality is not quite as good, the file size is smaller and loading time faster which makes it easier for those with slow connections.)

See previous posts in this thread if you wish to post an image stored on your hard drive but don't have your own website.

If the photographer wishes, there's no objection to a 'Photo by X' line appearing on the photograph provided it's not a business name and not a web address. Links/references to websites are not permitted on photographs nor in the body of posts.

I think it's a Piasecki H21 or PV15, there were several different models, or it might be one of the Boeing Vertol versions.

Hi BRL - it's a Piasecki CH-21 "Flying Banana"... Piasecki became Vertol, then Boeing-Vertol, so this is the forerunner of the CH-46 Sea Knight and CH-47 Chinook.

Cheers

After digging out the Valiant/Vixen photos I discovered some other early refuelling snaps which might be of interest.

The Vulcan picture is of a Mk1, probably working up for a trial to determine if it was feasable to maintain an airborne reaction force in the tense days of the early 60's. We tried it and it wasn't.

The Javelin was snapped on a routine sortie, Javelins were our bread and butter tasks at that time.

The Argosy was back to being a one off. It was a trial to see if it was possible to refuel an Argosy from the Valiant. We were as slow as we dare with some flap down, the Argosy was flat out and took a long time to catch up. He finally made contact on the tin drogue which was the standard in use at the time for the Valiant but it was all too difficult and never tried again as far as I know.

Sharpshot. I am certainly not putting up myself as an expert, indeed I have only just succeeded to publish. First of all, if you have photoshop, you should be able to covert to jpg by using "save as" and selecting jpg. Secondly you must start with the image IMG in [] brackets and end in /IMG in []. Give that a try, no guarantee. Good luck.

Sharphot - When you look at your album in Photobucket under each photo you have three lines of text.. On the bottom one the IMG tags and /IMG tags have helpfully already been applied for your use.. So, left click and drag your mouse over that line and that text will all become highlighted. - then right click your mouse and select copy.

Now just go to your PPRuNe posting window and right click select paste and the picture will appear in that position when you post it.

what you have posted above is just the link..

Just experiment a bit.. and all will become clear.

OK. Let us see if we can crack this problem.

You will notice that we are losing part of the pictures and the page is being extended to fit the picture in.

Please post with a resolution of NOT above 640 x 480. Anything above is too big for the page and wrecks the page presentation. That size is perfect.

sharpshot Please adjust the size of your picture, you can do it in photobucket, but be careful because once you have resized you cannot revert. The answer then will be to start again.

Camel Pilot,

Yes - point taken. I have deleted for now. I save all my own images as large Tifs anywhere up to 15 mb or 50+ if with layers.
Not conducive to this site - sorry!

I'll come back when I have something to downsize!

How about making two sets, one as tif. and one as jpeg.? Keep the jpegs for here.

You can do it in photoshop just 'save as' jpeg with a different title and voila you have two pics.

It will work I assure you.

Well one from two is not bad and it works fine.

I have checked the url for the Vulcan, and it might be that you posted bmp. file and not a jpeg. NOT sure if that is the reason though.

Well Camel Pilot - if at first, but do you know what, that 707 did appear for a while - saw it with ma own two eyes!

Anyway, the Vulcan, flown by my father landing at Filton circa 1959.

Posting pics here really is in the Lap of the Gods.............so I'm off to the airfield for a touch of reality!!

Point to bear in mind for digicam owners

The original file from the camera usually contains a lot of details about the time, date, camera, exposure etc. I find this a useful feature of the camera JPEG format (exif or summat like that)

Once you edit the file in something like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro and save it back to the original location, these details are lost from within the file.

I always keep my original photos in a specific folder which is archived to CDRs and also to a large external USB hard disk (keeps them easy to access). If I work on the photos, I move them to another place, especially if making significant changes, although I have been caught out on occasion and altered the orignal irreversibly.

Back up often. There's nothing like a hard disk failure to bring home the fragility of digital photos. Don't ask me how I know...!

Mark.

Biker Mark,
If you are using a Canon, the File Browser Utility will always give you that detail - even after you have tinkered - it may not show the Image but it will show your ref: no. so as long as you know that detail, there is no problem.

......oh, you use a Nikon - sorry, no idea!

CP - I think I'm getting the hang of this. After posting, I was deleting pics from Photobucket so I don't consume too much capacity there. But oh dear, if its not there, it vanishes off PPRuNe....I'm learning all the time
