707 At FSM--upload Help!

Sun Dec 04, 2011 6:06 pm

Hi all, yesterday I took a picture of a military KC-135 at FSM. I am trying to use the autocomplete function, but I can't figure out how to get the registration. All it says is "Sioux City" and "ANG 80109" on the tail. I looked up similar pictures of Sioux City KC-135s and they all have a registration--but it is not on the aircraft. How can I find the registration for the one I saw?

Just google "80109 KC-135" and you will come to this plane

You might want to pre-screen that in the other forum. Not only will it be rejected, but you've done some bad editing that might lead to a ban.

Quoting dlowwa (Reply 4):

Seriously not trying to be a jerk or show my ignorance...but how can that "bad" editing lead to a ban? It does not seem bad. Honest question.

I assume you have seen the image he has uploaded. I think what he did was probably unintentional, but it may not appear that way to whoever screens it, and all we have to go on is how it appears. I refer you to the rejection guide:

Editing

- Deliberate attempts to alter the image, i.e. by digitally removing or adding objects, or by purposely changing certain items in the image. This is considered a serious offence on our site.

Airliners.Net does not tolerate ANY deliberate alteration of the image for the purpose of the removal of objects from the image, addition of objects to photographs, deliberate blurring of objects (to create an artificial depth of field) or faces, or changing the registration or even entire color schemes. These type of EDITING rejections can result in a ban from the site.

Ok thank you. I was not aware of any deliberate editing...which I completely agree should not be tolerated.

Deliberate editing is pretty much required for this site. But deliberate editing of "removal of objects from the image, addition of objects to photographs, deliberate blurring of objects (to create an artificial depth of field) or faces, or changing the registration or even entire color schemes." is what will get you into trouble.

Just making sure you're aware of the difference!

Haha yes I get what you are saying. There are different "types" of editing. I am slowly learning. I have two accepted and five in the queue right now. It's a major learning process.

Yeah....sorry about my bad editing. I am very new to photography and still struggling to get my first acceptance out of 18 tries!

Can you please tell me what I did wrong so that I can work on that the next time I edit something? I certainly didn't mean to edit it in a wrong way, and I'll try to avoid that for other shots.
