After the discussion in this thread, I  built a site to share all my images taken from movies. Those are used in dvdprofiler layouts that display photo galleries as in this example :



You will find in the site Images of Movies a list of movies with 10 screen shots. Those photos are 600x450 for 4/3 DVDs , or 800x450 for 16/9 DVDs or Blu-rays. Aspect ratio is respected (black bars are as on screen), as shown in this example :



At that time (September 2011), we have about 2300 movies on this site (~23000 photos), and it is regularly completed with new movies.

This topic is made to manage the site: updates, technical feedback from users in case of problems (missing link, missing photo...)

I hope some of you will enjoy playing with dvdprofiler gallery feature, using images of movies.

Thanks surfeur51. Initially I wasn't interested (wasn't using galleries), but then I saw the screenshot with your layout (above), so went and downloaded all the movie screenshots (for titles in my collection). Thanks for all your hard work so far and into the future.

It's a bit of a bonus now that I'm using custom categories... some titles I have marked in these are available from the local library, and I've not seen them. A few screenshots nicely supplement the cover scans in these instances.

I can second W0m6at's point of view. I wasn't too interested myself in the beginning, but the way you incorporated it in your layout, makes it look all real good. So a big thank you for taking the time to do all this.

Same as the others said, I am hooked now, when I make some screenshots myself, is it possible to add them to your site, so that others can grab em too ?

cheers

Thanks! This is a nice contribution; Surfeur. I was just starting to add screenshots to my collection myself, so this will help me along a lot faster.

If I can help and add screenshots of movies you don't own, please let us know how to do so and I'll gladly help.

That was the advantage of yahoo groups , where each member can add his own photos. In a near future, I'll spend most of my free time completing my site. Then it will be possible to add other contributions. Just now, I thought I would shut the yahoo group I opened, but I can keep it alive so that other members add their own photos.

I'm opened to any other vsolution, except that my knowledge in programming is near zero (know how to link some html pages together, but nothing more...).

Where are people getting the screenshots from? Are you taking them directly from your discs or is there a few sites we can visit?

I see that the page has been updated, and with some movies I was sorely in want of screenshots for. In the words of Sir William Lucas "Capital! Capital!"

Yes, I just updated 50 new movies.  We have now 150 available.

My first preference is from surfeur51's website. DVD Beaver seems to be good. I've grabbed screenshots for a few movies from there (you'll probably want the list page).
DVD Beaver's master listing

It's also possible to filter on image dimensions in Google Image Search, so that can be a good place to get screenshots (although it's a bit hit and miss... and the images don't necessarily match up with what you're after). You can find the image size option in the Advanced Settings. Using the same dimensions as surfeur51 you can generally get some results.

I have no special order to put images on my site. I began with well known movies that may interest several people. If some users see, in my collection, movies for which they want to have quickly the images, they can ask here. The first to ask, the first served...
