This is no easy task my friend. Altering the templates dont give the result we desire. We cant change the place that Stark places the image, thats the problem. I have altered the template but end up with blank space on the sides which gives me an uncentered image in my skin.

We would also need it to save directly to jpg instead of png.

Can anyone make an action or script that will use the default images in Stark but do a couple of things after.

1. Remove the black shadow. (It makes the image not be a rectangle which looks bad in xbmc)

2. Square up the image. (remove excess blank space on all four sides)

3. Make it save as jpg but still have a transparent background. (changing extension from png to jpg directly will achieve this)

I have exhausted all efforts and am asking for help. Thanks.

I'm going to look into stark.
This is what I've got so far with the rework of my existing templates. With a resolution of 1000x1500 its hard including a border and attempting to resemble a traditional bluray case

that is pure sex Dr. Stranger. If you post that as a PSD I'll start getting to work on an action for photoshop if you want. FYI, the covers I'll be usin are 3118x1748...ultra high rez. They're full covers though, meant for printing your own cases, so I'll have ot work to batch just the front image, but it shouldn't be hard. Hope to see a final version from you soon. I've got 148 movies currently that I can add to your database once batched.

PS: I think this probably doesn't need to be asked, but just to make sure...you'll put a transparent background, right?

PS#2: When I said that it was "sex" I was refering to the case....not that horrible choice of a sample cover...twilight? *shudders*

I get all my 1000x1500px posters from http://www.getvideoartwork.com.
It's collection is huge but I couldn't find covers for all my movies. But most often there are a lot of different versions you can choose from (I love the ones uploaded by sirreef because they are absolutely clean and beautiful).

I am editing at 1000x1500, which is bigger than a 1920x1080 resolution. and 3118x1748 covers would look even better scaled down, win/win?

I'm getting my covers from 9covers.com I paid 20$ for a year membership. Their rules state I can't upload their covers to other sites, and i don't want to get banned, however nothing states I can't post my "edited" covers once they're attached to your template. Thats why i will upload them to media fire or something once I can get them batched. I suppose I could also do a few requests, if anyone has any Smile

Yeah I don't agree at all with their tactics, but the covers are the best looking things I've found so far, and will greatly enhance the look of this gorgeous skin...lets go DR. Stranger!!!! lol j/k don't want to rush a great thing.

9covers.com acts like a group of kids trying to form their own elite private society or something...kinda childish..things should be shared.

This is as far as I have got tonight, still have to adjust some colours, work on shadows, logo, corners and make the side border thinner like in the twilight preview

I still don't quite understand why this is in the alaska skin thread to be honest. It would make logical sense (in my mind atm) for this application to be developed within the script/plugin forum as it would benefit all skins.

Appreciate everyone that is working on this but why would it be limited to Alaska?
