Will give it a try...seems logical and kind of like a "duh" moment for me

yes that's better for the layout, but it seems the images that I have are not good enough for the size it seems. I can get close at a 30"x48", but my frame 2'x4' so I need extra. Sorry I am a noob when it comes to images...but is there something I can do with these current images?

Finished my second one tonight, this is the last printed one I am making right now. Next ones will be solid colors. Thanks again to Nick for formatting the pictures for me =)

You need the images resized, and cropped for your desired size, plus you should add a border to wrap around whatever frame unless you want to use the "unprinted" white.

Most posters, ok pretty much ALL posters, are closer to 3' x 2' for their dimensions. Taking a regular poster type image and making it fit into a 4' height while keeping the 2' width would mean cropping a lot of the sides off. That can be pretty cool for things like your poster with the Joker in the middle, but words at the bottom might get cropped out too.

Editing the photo to match your size needs, adding a border, etc are all things that I can do. I just received 3 requests today for a total of 24 posters to work on, but if you only have a couple that you need, I could add them to the mix. That will probably be all that I can do until several days after Christmas. Just too much going on, and since I don't charge anything to do it, I feel that is reasonable. Shoot me a PM if you want me to work them up for you.

Edit: Disregard my previous post as I misinterpreted the problem you are having.

It sounds like you need to do some photo-editing of the picture to get it to the right dimensions first, as Nick suggested - and Nick is the man for that!

10 posters (some pretty large) are done for chadwick537. Had to do some "adding" of imagery and tweaking to get things to be a little more cohesive, but they should be pretty awesome. I love doing posters and images that are all "themed" together. Should make for a killer room.

I have mine perched on 2 hooks with drywall anchors (those plastic ones that you screw into the wall and then any screw can go into it... Not the cheap ones). Why hooks? Because then if a panel isn't 100% level, I can just turn one of the hooks how ever much is needed to level it out. The hook itself just acts the same as the head of a nail, and the frame rests on it. It doesn't actually "hook" on to anything.
