News and Forum Instructions

#76434 The website www.airliners.net is a superb source of aviation related photographs. However all their photgraphs are copyright, and may not be posted on other websites without permission. That includes the vatsim.net forums.

The airliners.net policy on linking to their website can be found at http://www.airliners.net/usephotos/

Below is a copy of how to link to their photos, taken from the above link


Every photo has a unique ID number. If you want to link to the large version of an individual photo, insert the following code in your web page:


<!-- Copy The Code Below -->

<a href="http://www.airliners.net/open.file?id=12345">
Click Here</a> to view the photo<p>

<!-- Copy The Code above -->

It would look like this:
Click Here to view the photo

Replace '12345' in the code above with the id number of the photo you want to link to. You will find the ID number of every photo on every entry in the database.

If you want to link to the small (thumbnail) version of a photo use the following code:


<!-- Copy The Code Below -->

<a href="http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?id=12345">
Click Here</a> to view the photo<p>

<!-- Copy The Code above -->

It would look like this:
Click Here to view the photo

Of course, you simply replace the ID number in the above code with the ID number of the photo you want to link to.




Any photograph on this forum that is direct-linked to the full size photo on airliners.net will be removed. VATSIM does not condone breach of copyright, and we need to ensure that we keep our high reputation in the aviation community.
