    Edit:
    With recently I mean within a few hours of uploading. If you upload your images at the end of your playing session, they should be near the top of the page and you maybe have to scroll a bit to find them. If you have to use search to find your image, the below steps don't apply.

    Instructions for doing it in Chrome:
    1. Go to http://www.trainzportal.com/mytrainz/
    2. Hover your mouse over the image and click on "FULL IMAGE"
    3. Right-mouse-click the image and select "Copy image address"


    Instructions for doing it in Internet Explorer:
    1. Go to http://www.trainzportal.com/mytrainz/
    2. Hover your mouse over the image and click on "FULL IMAGE"
    3. Right-mouse-click the image and select "Properties"
    4. Copy the address listed behind "Address: (URL)"


    Instructions for doing it in Firefox:
    1. Go to http://www.trainzportal.com/mytrainz/
    2. Hover your mouse over the image and click on "FULL IMAGE"
    3. Right-mouse-click the image and select "Copy Image Location"


    Instructions for doing it in Edge:
    1. Go to http://www.trainzportal.com/mytrainz/
    2. Hover your mouse over the image and click on "FULL IMAGE"
    3. Right-mouse-click the image and select "Copy"


    Please take the time to read this suggestion and leave your support for it (if applicable):

    Thank you very much for the time and effort you have taken in what is a most helpful and lucid post.

    Thanks everyone for the additions about various browsers. I guess I overlooked differences in them. I was mostly going for a guide, knowing there would be differences (in browsers, OS, screenshot folder location, etc) but being unable to check/list them all.

    Oknotsen, the suggestion you have for the gallery is excellent and would simplify things greatly.

    As for Edge not working, most likely N3V never tested the gallery using that browser back when they created it (I assume it was around prior to Edge). I believe Edge uses a different codebase than IE series of browsers, so even if they tested against IE, Edge may still have problems. I would suggest a non Microsoft browser instead.

    One other thought, for those having trouble finding their screenshots in the 'Recent Activity' tab of the gallery. Try searching for your user name (search tab). This will list just your uploads, no matter when you uploaded them.

    Hi wpsoft, you may have already figured out if this is possible, but my guess is yes it is. Assuming google drive allows public linking to image files of course. As long as it is a publicly available url to the image it should work.

    A quick google came up with this help from google (includes sharing publicly)

    Good luck.

    Whammo, I have created a How-To Make a Screen Shot in the Trainz Wiki. I think it would be very useful to take your detailed description here and add it to that page or link it to a new "Help:Create a Screen Shot" page. I am willing to do the work. May I have your opinion? Presently, the wiki page has a link to this Forum thread.

    .. addition ..
    .. when your screenshot on your pc is hosted by trainz gallery, my own website, google drive, postimg or otherways, rightclick on that image and "copy image" .. paste it in your post ... so, no url-copy needed ..
    for example : i copied an image (= hosted screenshot) from the 1st post and pasted it here = ppp (pasting posted pic)

    So I was wondering if there's a folder where I can find my screenshots that I took in Trainz and copy and paste the image into another folder and then up to the Trainz Portal from there
