Kodi/Media Center Posters?

I’ve tried searching through the art section as well as Google images but am not having a ton of luck finding hi resolution posters/fan art for the Despecialized editions to use on my Kodi setup. I’ve moved away from solid mediums so the CD art and slip covers aren’t super helpful. Does anyone have a good source for Despecialized posters/fan art that are geared for movie scrapers?

Why aren’t the DVD covers here helpful? Can you not import custom covers? I don’t use Kodi, but I do use Plex and Plex’s scanners pick up a myriad of poster art including some that are distinctly Despecialized Edition.

Plex can also import custom covers from a local drive or from a url. Can Kodi not do that? If the DVD labels posted here only have the whole label (front to back) available, then it’s just a matter of cropping the image to include only front cover. You can do that with GIMP or MSPaint.

I’m not sure why you can’t crop an image yourself and import it. Can Kodi seriously not do that?

I’m not sure why Kodi has a problem displaying custom covers.

EDIT: Just read this thread: http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/id/54295
…oh. You mean Despecialized fanart (meaning background images), not just posters. Yeah, there ought to be more of those made.

It’s like it’s quite possible that Picasso would have loved to use Photoshop for some of his paintings if it was available back then, but if you take a picture from Picasso and recreate it in Photoshop, it’s not going to be the same picture and it can hardly be used to demonstrate Picasso’s brush techniques.

The issue I’ve had with the DVD covers is that they aren’t a high enough resolution that translates well to being a poster. They look fine until they are blown up on big screen TV.

Would you be interested in these for each film? I can pm you a download link with each of them. I use them on kodi and they look fantastic!

If they are the vectorized ones made by Man_Overboard, they have missing detail and some spelling mistakes. Still good though. Star Wars is the only original one I have found above 853x1280, at Gizmodo. 1280 is probably fine for Kodi/Media Center, just image search Google for “Olly Moss Star Wars” using those dimensions.

Thats just a picture I have that i googled of all three of those posters together, i have the original ones i got off him

Off whom, Olly Moss? If so I would also love a PM with links. Also interested in the fan art folder you mentioned in your thread. Cheers!

Some stuff from docsuess84’s other Kodi / Media Centre / Despecialized thread:-

http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Despecialized-Hi-Res-posterslandscape-fan-art/id/54295

for ideas and stuff…

 

That is a top idea 😃

Do you mean something like this?:-

think these are pretty different…

 

these are Harmy’s DVD covers ‘just’ lined up into 1 picture - but still pretty cool…

or maybe something like…

(^ poster found at http://desktopgraphy.com/star-wars-posters-empire-strikes-back-return-jedi-high-resolution/star-wars-posters-empire-strikes-back-return-jedi-gallery/)

 

or something a little simpler…

 

a simple ‘Complete Saga’ poster…

 

this very cool Classic Trilogy poster from Alistair-Rhythm at devianart.com

It may be worth asking him if he’d do one for you with ‘Despecialized Edition’ text on there?

 

It should be quite easy to find almost any large Star Wars cover / poster / art you like and attach some ‘DeSpecialized Edition’ text onto them as a few pictures below show… (MS Paint and a few Star Wars themed fonts usually does the trick for me 😃)

 

a few very quickly knocked-up examples - just for ideas etc…

There are some more artwork here that could do a decent job of doubling up as Media Centre covers:-

and good luck 😃

 

ps - most of the images above are 1920x1080 - you can download the full size files from a googledrive here (there is more art in the link below too - though not in landscape):-

Please feel free to edit and improve upon them 😃

 

 

the talented teharri has also knocked up some cool poster sets which could be of use for this as well:-
