joebrady --> Found this, in response to the question I was unable to answer earlier.
I haven't tried it myself yet, as I'm at work. But reasonably it should work!

Update. See first post.

Looking nice! Not so sure why you burned the title into the poster, since it's already indicated by the skin. I'm looking forward to the rest of them

Some skins have view types that only indicate it when it's selected (Aeon showcase view comes to mind). Rest assure though, I am actually planning on making alternatives without text.

I love them... I do wish that they worked with Library mode since taht is what I use... but still great job... I would add a Animation on onto the to do list if I had it working in library mode.
Well anyway... just thought I would say Great work.

True, it would be very nice if they worked with library view. This thread does bring up something that might get it to work-ish.. Haven't tried it myself and it might be too limited, but hey, better than nothing at all.

I think they look really good I especially like the first lot of black and white ones where can I get those ones?
I would also like to request one for the genre of Stand-up Comedy.

The black & white ones have not been released yet, I posted an preview of them because I wanted feedback on the general look and feel of them. Rest assured, Stand-Up will be part of the next Poster-Pack. I already have a list 30-something genre's that I am in the process of making.

Not really hard to implement in a skin. Took me 10 minutes to get these working with my skin. I put up a proof-of-concept in the Serenity thread to anybody who wants to see.
All it takes as adding an image control wherever you want them to appear in...and presto:
The dimensions/position aren't so much important...it's the visibility and texture tags that do it. The visibility one tells it to only display the images when the container has Genres...and the texture tag just tells it to use GENRENAME.jpg as the image. So, as long as there's an image for that Genre...it works.
Which brings me to my next point...I'd like to use these with Serenity, but I'd want a full imageset. According to my library, this would require the creation of images for the following Genres:
Smart (Okay, I added that one custom...for my Richard Dawkins Documentaries)
Edit: Also, I've got a labeling system, so if I could get just the representative posters...even better. I'll also be leaving the graphics open-ended, so people can use one set or another...

Thank you very much, I'll have to find some time to test that out.
