We are running short on movie covers especially new movies. I feel we need some nice quality, scans or customs. We're turning into a music cover site. Not that that's bad, but hey, BRING ON THE MOVIES!!...

Get your size right on DVD's.   300dpi x 2175 x 3240.

I'd like to see freecovers get back to where it used to be!

I've been uploading a bunch of R1 high quality Blu-ray/4K/3D movies and TV shows over the years.  Scanned and finished (Using GIMP) at 600DPI though as I like the higher quality that it provides.  I too would like to see more high quality scans.  Most of the scans quality are not so good.  On the rare occasion that I download a cover, most times I'm having to put the image into GIMP to repair, remove defects, remove the moire, etc.

Actually, I did scan in a few at 1200dpi, GIMPs XCF format (Nothing like a 200MB image hanging around).  There just was not any improvement that I could find.  300dpi to 600dpi, yes, there is an improvement for sure.
