Thanks Face, looks like it still works for me, but I suppose it would.

Ho hum, have to think of something else.

Trying imgur.

Does this work for everyone?

Thanks Face, just have to transfer the relevant files over now!

I currently use imgur without problems.
If you want to embed your images in your posts, copy the "BBC link".

Thanks Ripley.
I don't want to embed the images, if the direct link works. I'm guessing it will take more room up on the Orbiter site?

It will take around the same room on Orbiter site. It's saved just as text here.

Code:
[img]address_to_image[/img]

will become something like:

<img src="address_to_image"/>

and

[url]address_to_image[/url]

will become something like:

<a href="address_to_image">address_to_image</a>

Thanks Orb, I'd assumed it stored a copy of the image on orbiter's site.

OK, copied the images over to imgur.
If some kind soul would confirm the links all work and they are in the right place, that would be helpful. I've put text labels in them, so they should be in the relevant #post number.

Thanks, N.

This one should be 12b, but shows the album instead. All the others work for me.

Thanks Face, should be correct now.

Looks like I picked a good time to start using Paint again

Real life has gone quiet, so back to this. I'll try and finish it off fairly quick, and keep it generic.

For a review, have a look at #11 onward, basically about transparency on surface tiles for Orbiter 2010.

Continuing on from #12

.dds files come in various versions.
I've used version 1, 3 and 5. As I understand it version 1 has no Alpha channel, so no transparency.
Versions 3 and 5 have Alpha channels, so can have transparency. The difference is in the resolution of the Alpha channel, 5 has a higher resolution than 3.
The transparency effect on 5 could be more subtle and graduated than 3.

Here are some examples of 3 and 5 on the same image.
