Oh and to answer your question Ethan I get my artwork from various places. I spent a lot of time getting the best covers from http://www.getvideoartwork.com. It's a lot of manual labor but It pays off.

getvideoartwork.com is a great place to find the most quality covers

Okay...thanks....Do you leave them at the same size as you download...Or do you do any resizing for Stark,...Atm, i've been resizing mine to (729x1080), but nobody seems to be doing this...

Yeah I started doing that long ago, but I keep them as is now. 1000x1500 is the standard at that website and I just keep them like that. Look fine to me in Auriga.

I believe he got the Star Wars posters from getvideoartwork.com.

Oh, and I have a question about Star Wars aswell... I see the HDTV flag. Do you actually have a copy of it in HD? I've been waiting for them to release a Blu-Ray version, but yeah how'd you get an HDTV copy?

Even though I just looked and they are located at http://www.getvideoartwork.com I got the Star Wars ones from using Media Info Plus, which pulled the posters from http://www.themoviedatabase.com

For example.

The clue is in the name - High Definition TV - they've been broadcast in HD.

Great work, and yes it is time consuming but worth it at the end.

I also go to http://getvideoartwork.com/ and then upload the good looking posters to http://www.themoviedb.org/

Some of the ones on tmdb are either bad quality or not in English or with no movie name or the promotional posters before the movie was out, etc...

I did a massive update to all the Pirates of he Caribbean and Batman posters.
As well as all the James Bond movies, I uploaded all the older James Bond poster designs that were on getvideoartwork

In the showcase view, with the dark theme, my media icons are still showing up grey, so they are not visible and not white like the examples.

Is there a new version out that updates that??

Thanks

EDIT: DISREGARD....FIXED, thanks
