Google+ gone with the wind … Google Photos waiting around the corner

While Google decided a while ago that it was time to remove and delete all Google+ accounts, it was for us and many others a challenge to find a new platform to add additional screenshots of our/your aircraft, sceneries, utilities and so on.

The only problem … what or which platform was suitable and fulfils our needs. Although we’re still not convinced that Google Photos is the right platform we’re looking for, it could be a start. Oh yes, we do also use Dropbox but Dropbox has no possibility to show screenshots or photos. We can store them there, but nothing more than that.

We also tried Pinterest, Flickr and many others, but not all fulfil our ideas or wishes. That said, we go for Google Photos and every time we have a new set of interesting screenshots, we add a link below. Any ideas? Please let us know via the contact form.

Today, July 21st 2019, we start with a screenshot session of the Carenado Beechcraft Baron 58 for X-Plane 11:

  • Carenado Beechcraft Baron 58
    Compiled with photo-real scenery textures from ZonesPhoto (zoom level 16) of the Netherlands, FlyWithLua package, FlyAGI Tweak Utility (lua script) with cloud textures from XP11 Environment+ 1.1
  • Carenado PA-31T Cheyenne II
    Compiled with photo-real scenery textures from ZonesPhoto (zoom level 16) of the Netherlands, FlyWithLua package, FlyAGI Tweak Utility (lua script) with cloud textures from XP11 Environment+ 1.1 and this time I also installed X-Europe from SimHeaven to give the Netherlands an even more realistic look and feel!

  • Exploring photorealistic Norway
    As of this writing – August 2019 – I’m reviewing 2 Norwegian airports – ENHA and ENOV – and decided to make a flight from ENHA Hamar to ENOV (Ørsta–Volda Airport, Hovden). I could do that with below the default X-Plane textures, but was seeking for another option. That option is using ortho textures, in this case from Zones Photo. From an altitude of approximately 12.000 feet this is how the Norwegian landscape looks like. Judge yourself!
