  1. Sorry, John, for my late reponse due to vacancies. I've been there in real life on a long bicycle-tour through alsace with a school friend (long time ago). Yes, it's very pretty there as everywhere in Alsace. But not sooo much exciting as one might think, because you can see these interesting geometrical structures only on a map or from above in a plane. That's why I like flightsimming so much. You can see very interesting structures, be it man made or be it natural like volcanoes, calderas, meandering rivers and river knees, river deltas, and tectonic specialities. There is always a lot to discover on photorealistic sceneries. Nice flights, Peter

    Both thumbs up, Gottfried. This is exaktly the way I like flightsimming. Thank you very much for showing!
  4. It's not the Star of Bethlehem - it's the star of Neufbrisach, Alsace (France): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1i6Y8i1i-WwLGKj5wbT5J004Dk9hT0599/view?usp=sharing
  5. Thank you for your nice comments. You can get full size of these pictures if you click on one of these pictures. Then you will see "Page not found", but if you click there again you will see them in full size in a slide show. I will change the hoster the next days (weeks) and then I will post these pictures here again that everybody can see them more comfortably in full size. Sorry for the circumstances, I'm just trying to find in this job, posting pictures on AvSim. Have nice days Peter
  6. Scott, thanks for the information with the native resolution! So probably I will try Flickr with my next posting? ??? But I'm still keen on further informations. . .
  7. Has anybody tried Google-Drive (drive.google.com)? There you have 15 GB for free. @jt8d9a Nils, all my pictures have a size under 500 kB. So 15 GB would mean 30,000 pictures. Should be enough!?! :-)
  8. Hello, thanks very much for your replies! 🙂 @ soaring_penguin: I just have tried Imgur. But when you click on the picture to get a bigger size, you will get a picture like this sometimes: And when you click again to get fullsize/fullscreen, you will get a picture with a white frame: And this can't be full size if the picture is 1920 x 1080 and your/my monitor is 1920 x 1080 as well. I tried to find some settings to change this, but I did not succeed. I also want to make a gallery with the uploaded pictures, but I wonder if/how this is possible with Imgur. Is it necessary to post the pictures in the Imgur Community to make a gallery? @Scott and jt8d9a: I've seen that it took some time until the picture is to be seen on Flickr. And if you click again on the picture to get full size you will get something like double size. This means that the picture will not be sharp any more. Is it possible to create a gallery with Flickr? Then I would accept the two points above and make a try. @all: I was very happy with smugmug.com. With one click you can choose a profile for your gallery and smugmug created this gallery automatically. Just bring the pictures in different albums for each theme and you will get a perfect gallery. But although I clicked the settings that I don't want to sell my pictures they wanted to sell them for 0,19 $/€ each. So funny. And blamable for me. And you have to pay for it each month. Maybe any other recommendations? Thanks again very much Peter
  9. Hello, I had not much luck with the picture hosters I tried. I'm looking for a simple hoster with no advertisement and marketing staff. If you click on the picture you should get a bigger picture and with another click you should get fullscreen picture (1920 x 1180). I've looked in a lot of threads in this AvSim screenshot forum and "investigated" for a good hoster. I tried the ones I liked, but I get other results than the other users. I don't have much experience in this theme. Sorry for my bad Englisch, it's not my mother tongue.
  10. Testing another hoster: P.S.: when you click on the pictures in the first post to get a bigger size, you will get a big frame from/with imgur (the hoster). When you click on the picture in this posting, you will just get only the picture. So this hoster is better? Contras: to upload one single picture you have to click a lot of times through the reCAPTCHA-test (that you aren't a robot) 👎 And if you click another time on the picture, you don't get fullsize but blurried oversize 👎 Can somebody recommend a better picture hoster?

    Honolulu never looked so good

    If somebody is interested (and the TO Nuno Pinto doesn't mind) I could show some shots for comparison how it looks like in good old FSX with Megascenery Earth scenery. Peter

    Sorry, the links in my posting from October 31th didn't work. I suppose because of missing blanks.

    P3Ders: Understand this please!

    I can tell you: because _I_ tried to get new members in our community. I did my very best. And in the forums there are these "Porsche-drivers" *) who rapidly kicked them off again by trying to missioneer them to P3D (or XP11 or AF FS2). These "Porsche-drivers" *) react like beeing vendors/publishers (or at least being developers). I'm bored now to help the vendors and developers to find new customers if they will not understand that they are chasing them away. This should be a last chance to overthink their behaviour. But as I said before: this is not my problem, it's theirs. *) this is not against Porsche-drivers. This is only relating to the example in the first post.
