Question, besides aircraft, can non-aircraft pictures be uploaded to then be displayed as an attachment to a post?

If so, where and how do you upload non-aviation photos.

The only upload area I find is for aviation photos, with detailed mandatory questions to answer that would not apply to a non-aviation photo.

Hi,

At the moment there is no such function built in. If you want to link a non-database photo, it will need to be hosted somewhere else. If it's your own photo, there are several free hosting sites available for these purposes. I'm not sure if/when the feature we used to have is coming back.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. I was in the "Non-Aviation" Forum, and the reply section allowed attachments, but, it would only be an aviation related upload that could be attached.

Someone had attached a large picture to another forum, but that photo was not available to link to. I'll find time to upload it to whatever photo service I'm using, and then link to it in that thread...
