    Hello everyone,
    I have been captivated by aviation for as long as I can remember and when I found a copy of Peter Bowers "Guide to Homebuilts" in the local library 52 years ago the die was cast.
    I am an Army trained rotary wing pilot and completed a Gyrobee gyroplane 10 years ago.
    It's time to be creative again.
    I call my small shop Area 29. It's where I go to dream of building flying machines and piloting them, of creating my vision of aviation, Area 29 Aerial Adventures. It's a state of mind.
    I'll take this opportunity to test posting a photo. ( failed ) My images live on my computer and the attach image button wants a URL. How is this done?

    Regards,

    David Wood

    Snipping tool. It is easy. Find snipping tool on your computer. Use snipping tool to take a "snip". Save the snip, I save on desktop because it is easy to find (if you get a lot put em' in a folder). Bring up a thread like this one and select "upload a file". Browse for your snip (hint it is on desktop or were ever you put it". Open it. Tada.

    Thank you Blane.
    I guess 3.1 mb is still to large.
    I will work on it.

    You can use Paint to reduce the pixel size of your photo.

    I've had success with sending pictures to www.imgur.com then using the share links for forums.
    NO JOIN UP for imgur is required. I liked using it so much that I chose to join, as it's ZERO cost.

    You don't need the snipping tool. Just find and highlight the image on your computer, CTRL-C to clip copy it (or rightclick-copy to clipboard), then go to the message you're typing, CTRL-V to paste the image into the message. Simple and easy.

    You can copy images on other websites and paste them in the same way, too.

    Welcome David. Retired last year out of Ft. Rucker. Ever heard of that?
    Hope your area 29 dreams come true.
