I think we just need to make sure that the first post in the thread you find when you google “Star Wars Despecialized” has CLEAR instructions on how to get it. Yes, it takes some searching, but if we made that even easier for someone they wouldn’t just give up and pay these jerks money.

What you have to remember to make a good graphic for cover designs is that you have to make it bigger than you need. Leave edged all around. Even add edges if you can. In some cases you can’t. Then when you drop a graphic into a cover template, you have more room to work. Ideally, the template would be a little big so you can trim off part of the printed image for an clean edge (as opposed to trying to cut along an exact line and getting some white and then having to go back and recut and run the risk of an uneven edge). You have to plan for this when you place the images. The cover image may need to be a tiny bit offset. For professional printing they like to more room to cut. Though I just proofed something for work today that didn’t look like it had any over printing.

I’m just using the pdf provided here, is it high quality? I’m just going to print it at a print shop and have them cut it if they can.

You’ll need to make sure it prints at at least 300 dpi if you want “high quality”. Figure that out with your image and the print size. If you do a little research online you can learn all about this. Take fifteen minutes to google for the proper blu-ray cover template size, and what “dpi” means, and what the image resolution is in whatever your source image is. This will help you figure out what you need and what to tell your print shop to get a perfect cover.

And yes, ideally you add what’s called “bleed” to the edges of the image to allow for room to cut it perfectly.

UPDATE: Acquired some blank Blu-Ray cases and printable discs, i got a friend who has an Epson Artisan printer for printing on discs similar to Mr. Yotsuya’s, but I have no idea if the printable cover provided here fits the dimensions of my Blu-Ray case. Its just a standard generic Blu-Ray case.

Specifically this one:

It’s going to take some measuring and some knowledge of DPI and print size. Some cases have different widths, 11m, 14mm. That will affect how the printed cover fits.

Episode VIII Discussion *SPOILER THREAD*
Time

All I want is for Hayden to not appear in episode VIII. For real.

Because then it will have validated the asinine alteration to the very end of ROTJ with the ghosts.

It’s so frustrating to see all of this. On one hand, it would be ideal if we could just have links out in the open for everyone! OF COURSE we want everyone to experience Star Wars the “right” way! But then, we are crossing a line where the Mouse could wake up and shut it all down over copyright infringement concerns. So, we’re forced to put small barriers up to make sure it at least takes a little bit of research and work to get it.

Then you have the asshats who just profit off that confusion.

How do I get to download these? I’ve been wanting to do marathon plus rogue one and these would be great for that!

The answer you seek is not behind you… it is above. I am no Moderator, but I know the ot.com. It moves through and surrounds every living thing. Close your eyes… feel it… The light… it’s always been there. It will guide you. The link. Take it.

That made my day. Brilliant!

edit: the pulsing red glow is way less noticeable here than in previously released versions of this scan

Agreed! The previous version was unwatchable because of the red glow. This one looks way better!

[…] I was actually softening a little in my heart on my stance against the prequels. I was even vaguely considering watching them again at some point.

Oh boy, the “giving-the-Prequels-one-more-chance” thing. That comes in my mind from time to time too. I have not seen the Prequels for quite a while now in order to forget them as good as possible. But on the other hand, i’m saying to myself: Hey, they can’t be that bad? Let’s rewatch them completely open-minded. I did this two times in the past … but those movies are not getting better

I made the mistake a few years ago of falling into the “maybe I’ll give them just one more go” trap. No, they were worse than I remembered. After that I physically threw the DVDs in the trash so I may never again be tempted. My household is officially prequel-free.

I would like to print off your star wars covers please. i have no idea how this works. seems overly complicated. i just printed off a bunch of other covers off of google images but yours i had to sign up for a website, then i had to download winrar, because the link a commenter used was a .rar file. turns out those weren’t even the right images. lol. they were his. do you send them to my email or what? i sure do wish there was just a link on here for them. then you wouldn’t have to deal with requests either. anyway, great job making these. my email is derekrude@hotmail.com thanks in advance.

Sometimes things take research and some work. You can figure it out! Please be patient and don’t be afraid to learn to things along the way.

If you are referring to the cover images directly above your various posts here, you can just click on them. They are hosted on imgur. Just go the source location for them on imgur and download the full size. Unfortunately imgur tends to add a lot of jpeg compression, but they should still print fine for you.

How do I get a set??

As a community, how can we address this issue of people just coming on these threads with another uninformed question such as this? They don’t even bother to do two minutes of research. Is there some better way we can educate? Obviously threads marked as “announcements” on the main forum page are ignored.

I’m getting really bothered by seeing a new post marked in a thread only to find it yet another question like “where’s the link”? It of course takes away from any real discussion about the material. Every time I get my hopes up that it’s another update on a project, or another perspective on the project, but no… just another flippant request.

Sorry, just ranting. I wish more of these folks would take some time to look around. But perhaps that’s just something old people like me do - familiarize yourself with any new group or community first before opening your big mouth. 😃

To answer your question, it used to be available by some MEGA links, but that is no longer the case.
