How To Display NON-a.net Photos?

I have seen a few messages where a non-airliners.net photo is imbedded in the message. You don't have to click on a link to see it - it is just there.

The "how-to" instructions only address a.net photos.

How is this being done?

RE: Illegal Photo Usage, Is This My Image?

Here's a twist. <p>When you take a photo of an airliner, it is generally regarded as "public domain" subject matter. <p>However, when you <i><b>sell</i></b> a photo of an airline's aircraft, you are "profiting from proprietary subject matter". <i>(I realize that you aren't offering this photo for sa...

RE: Hilton LAX Airport

I've stayed in this hotel 20-30 times in the last couple of years. Sam is right about the windows. They are darkly tinted, but you can still get some good photos.

RE: Yes, This Question Again.......

I have had a few photos in the queue for over two weeks. Of 5,400 photos in the queue, there are about 350 ahead of me.

If they're good, they'll get posted soon enough. If they are rejected, I can wait many more weeks for THAT news.

Patience pays, nevertheless.

American's livery has remained attractive and "timeless" for a long time, indeed. It is doubtful that they would ever revert to a fully-painted aircraft - of any color.
