okay, firstly, thank you for the banners. and let me extend this offer to anyone so inclined. if you have a dvd capping program on your computer and would like to contribute it would be very much appreciated. i've been trying to freshen up the banner selection recently and i can't do it alone. the only thing would be to try to make sure that your banners are of the highest quality. no stretching, no pixelation, etc. which makes these great EXCEPT something i've been doing to my banners is making sure that the levels are a good contrast so the image isnt dull.
too dull. while it may represent best what the film looks like, for a visual representation it's too bland.
just the right balance. if you have photoshop i usually manually go into the Levels tool and pull up the highlights and shadows just a little bit (depending on how much the image needs it) to get the best quality image.
but just watch it. if you adjust the levels too much, it also looks bad.
black and white images are usually easier. most times you can just hit Auto Levels and it does a good job making it just the right contrast. sometimes you have to watch it though. if anyone has any other questions, just ask.
