    We have a many photo sharing threads here on Inside Flyer, mostly in the Destination Travel section. These are a place to share our visions of some of the magnificent places we have seen.

    I've set up a very simple format, and I hope you'll create similar threads for your favorite cities. For clarity and to make these stand out, follow the title format, "(City name)- share your photos of this (choose appropriate adjective) city". Then just give a very brief paragraph telling us what is special about the city, post four or six of your favorite shots, and invite the rest of the Inside Flyer photographers to follow your lead. Please try to keep your image no more than 800 pixels wide to prevent screen formatting and bandwidth issues.

    Please add your photos to the existing threads, and create new ones for cities or regions you've enjoyed visiting. If you create a new thread, announce it here and I'll add it to the list. Also, consider creating one for your home town. For help uploading pix, see eightblack's thread. Use the "Upload a File" button for pix from your computer, or the little photo link icon for pix from photo sharing sites on the net.

    PTravel has created an excellent, easy to follow tutorial on How to Make Your Travel Photos Look Great for MilePoint. It is helpful for photographers of all levels of experience.

    These treads take a good bit of effort to create, so please show your appreciation by clicking the "like" button on all the posts or photos that you like. That will encourage others to share their pix.

    It's an easy format for people to follow and contribute content.You don't need to be a great photographer or a great writer; all you need is passion and a love of travel. I hope lots of you add lots of threads with this concept.

    I can get my photos from Philadelphia up. Especially Eastern State Penitentiary. That pretty much describes Philly to me. [​IMG]

    That's good, but it's better in the future, instead of a title like "Slovakia - Bratislava and other Cities"
    use one like "Slovakia - Share your photos of Bratislava and other Cities".

    That way when people scan the thread titles it will pop out, and they'll know what it is.

    Now start adding photos...

    Done, thanks! I have some good pix to add there later today.
    It needs to be. Right now it's tricky editing the master post, I go back and forth between rich text and bbcode.

    We can get anything you want, just follow the simple format and start a thread.

    Budapest just appeared, I'll add it to the master list.

    Would a photo thread dedicated to airline/aircraft be appropriate here? Perhaps titled "The Most Unique Airline/Aircraft you have ever seen".....Would love to see members pics of North Korean or other rare and unusual airline/aircraft photos.
