    Hi tony,

    welcome to GEH.

    You just need 'Google Earth' to create .kmz/.kml files. Just fly to the spot you wanna save, click the 'Placemark' button on the bottom right of the screen, enter name, description etc and then right click on the new placemark in 'Places' - 'Temporary Places' and choose 'Save as...' and you are done!

    Thanks Steeefan,
    I can fly to loads of places and see arial photos of the area.
    However when I fly to my area, around Bristol U.K. all I can see is a blurred image or blocky pixels.
    Any idea's on what I am doing wrong please?
    regards
    tony

    You aren't doing anything wrong, it's just that this area is not available in hi-res. You have to wait until Google updates your area with newer photos.

    Oh my god I'm dying...

    You will also see also loads of posts from me on this site, even more than from hypeserver. Now guess how proud I'm of that matter of fact. It's totally awesome to have more posts than the former #1 poster of this site. You really should try reaching this point beyond hypeserver, it really makes you feel and sleep better.

    This forum is not affiliated with Google. You are talking to the wrong guys.
