KPA Album Overview and Freqently Asked Questions
This is where you get to share the experience of Kansas flying
with fellow pilots. You can easily upload photos and captions,
create new albums and "nested" albums to organize your
photos. When you upload a photo, whether from your own PC, or
use an image directly from another website, a "thumbnail"
will automatically be created. Thumbnails are smaller images that
can be clicked for the full sized view. Captions are shown below
the thumbnail images.
Comments can be added under each photo and are encouraged. The
usage statistics are also shown below each photo thumbnail.
Members Photo Albums
Members can create a "personal nested album" for
their own pictures. Instructions are posted below as well as
on this main page.
Chapter Event Photos
Since these three categories are linked to the event calendars,
members are not currently allowed to create event Albums. However,
we welcome pictures to be added by our members as our aim is
to have at least photo from each event and preferably many.
Follow the instructions at the top of this Album's main page.
Please contact the Album-master
if you have problems posting your pictures.
If you have an idea for another top level album category, contact
