Heavens no. But what is that you gave me? It looks exactly like the file you just gave me. But it says pss2.ram........1 KB......................By the way, what's a jpg. I tryed coping it and it would not let me paste it here. Is a jpg a picture of the object? :-)

I was trying to send a picture. How do I do it. I tryed copying then post on this msge area but it won't let me paste.When I go to step 3 it offers for me to browse, but browsing don't give you pictures!!. This is important to me because pictures save typing 100 words. Do you use YAFF? How do i go to the picture of the file without copying? :-)

This is a very confusing thread. If the item you want to display isn't a .jpeg (aka .jpg) or .gif file, then it's not going to work. There are several formats of pictures in computers, but most of the web prefers jpegs or gifs. Some .TIFs or .PNGs maybe, but nothing else is really going to display. For the information to be displayed as a picture, it must be a picture format file. If it's a .Rar, .Zip, .Exe or any other format not used for displaying picture information, then it won't do that. Hopefully, you know that already. ;)If you can't get it to work using this host, then go to http://imageshack.us/ click the "Browse" button and locate the picture file you want to show, then hit OK. It will have a path to the file you selected in that line to the left of "Browse" and if you need to resize it to fit within Avsim posting limits, select the size in the box below and place a checkmark. Then simply hit "Host It" and it will upload the image to their server. The very bottom of the page, when it comes up, will have a direct link to the code you want for your pic, so you copy and paste it to the message.it will simply look like an internet address with the last part containing the .jpeg text. You don't need the IMG tag on Avsim.

Perhaps you should just have a go at explaining your problem.jt

I believe your problem is that the picture is not on your hard drive and you want to copy and paste it here from another web site.To browse your HD is not the same as browsing the web in this case... upload window will not let you browse the web.I'll also add that you really should not post shots of any kind on Avsim that are not your own or that you do not have specific rights to use. Plus the fact that Avsim does not want photos or screen shots posted anywhere but in the screen shot forum. You can then refer people to it there, if you have the rights to it.

It sounds like to me he's trying to take a screenie (not a photo) of an error message he's getting in FS?I'm not sure why we'd want that in the formal screenshots forum.Maybe I read this thread wrong, but that's what it sounds like to me.

Tim,You've got the cart ahead of the horse, I think.You need a few things first.1. A tool to take screenshots with found here: http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=117682. A tool to resize them with such as photoshop elements or paintshop pro....or some other application that probably came free with your PC. Google is your friend here also.After that here's a primer on Avsim's rules on sizes, etc., which you should read:http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=117683. 'staggerwing'<--Avsim screenshots forum mod can probably chime in here and clarify whether or not screenshots of error messages or similar can be posted outside of the screenshots forum...I think it should be ok though.Hope that helps.

Re #1...............Can this tool be used outside of avsim, For example in my Delta v a forum?

Yes,It's a 3rd party application which happens to reside in this file library and probably others which can be used to take screenies of just about anything you want. It saves them in another folder...then you just open those pics (very large usually) whith your photoshop or equivalent...then resize the physical dimensions and save in .jpg format and then slide the 'quality' which adjust the actual file size....then you can upload those here at Avsim if they meet the rules.:-)

Huh? If you mean flight deck solutions, no, I just love their stuff, if you're talking about the title of my blog, that's all that is.Your questions are really starting to sound a bit strange now and hard to decifer.Avsim is the largest 'online news outlet' and community for flight sim in general followed by simflight.com and flightsim.com; if that's what you mean.Take some time and have a look around the FS world.:-)
