i'm interrested, but i'm really not a graphist, just cut images there and there but nothing more...

Be sure you are sizing and aligning the images properly, they should be exactly 400x155 and bottom aligned (vertical) center aligned (horizontal).
It would be a shame if people churned out a bunch of images that weren't quite up to par with the rest because they missed the post about sizing and such.

As for the shadow/border it would all depend on the image software you're using. I test each of my images on 4-5 different background colours and adjust them accordingly after.
(also I think mcborzu already made one for caprica, check his screenshot so you don't accidentally put your efforts to waste)

no problem, they're just try
you test them on backdrops?
i'm using gimp or paint.net.
yes, i'm missing the vertical allignement on thoses

I test them on solids mostly black/green/red/blue/white.
Gives me a basic idea of the worst case scenarios of my images out in the wild.

i've taken care of alignement this time

Figured out a way to open a specific genre directly...
1. Create a Playlist named Animation
mcborzu, could you try this with your HD Movies?
- mcborzu - 2010-03-21 21:20
I just use XBMC for movies and TV, anything else I have to lookup...What are the steps to create a playlist?
- xbs08 - 2010-03-21 21:25
By creating a playlist you dont have to create a specific genre (eg. for sorting 720p files), and playlist dont require editing, it's all done in xbmc.

Heres another section:
Pictures in action - Youtube Link
I'm not really into the picture section so any suggestions? That wraplist uses square thumbs would 16x9 thumb be better?
