Preliminary question: How do I insert a screenshot?


Recommended Posts

Hi KSP colleagues,

Before I ask my main question, could someone please explain how I can insert a screenshot file.  That is, I took a screenshot of one of my flights, and I would please like to ask a question related to this image.  However, I don't see an option to load a file from my computer, and I don't seem to be able to copy a snippet of the  image right here.

Thank you.

You need to host the image on a service like imgur.com or similar.

Then use the insert image from url button in the create new post frame. For the picture to be displayed, the URL should end in the format of the image (i.e .jpg or .png), otherwise it will appear as a link only.

Hi Caerfinon,

OK.  Thank you.

I am a big fan of the KSP Forum (and of KSP itself).  If I may say so, however, I wish that the KSP Forum allowed users to load images from one's local computer.

But I do appreciate your reply.  I will now proceed to set up an account with Imgur.

Technically you don't need an account for Imgur, but it's useful if you want to save the link to your screenshots.

Hi Realkerbal3x,

Let me try the link right now.

Hi KSP colleagues,

Could you please be so kind as to look at this image of a fairly circular orbit that I achieved around Kerbin using the stock Kerbal X spacecraft:

Now, I understand what the terms "argument of the periapsis" and "longitude of the periapsis" mean.  For example, in the context of Earth's orbit around the Sun, I understand these terms.

What I don't understand is the meaning of these terms in the present context -- that is to say, in the context of a spacecraft orbiting planet Kerbin.  Could someone please explain that to me.

Thank you.

The image is posted below.  I am having trouble figuring out imgur.
