Those look amazing Nick!! The help you provide to everyone is unreal and so appreciated. I still love the posters in my theater room. I am still looking for a design to do on my back wall that I will need your help with..

Sorry if this has been posted before but I haven't had a chance to go through this whole thread.

There is a TON of Hi Res "Textless" movie posters and photographs on these two sites. I suggest starting on the last post for both of these because they are long and old threads and some of the pictures are no longer liked from the earlier posts.

At first I thought I would prefer the movie poster with the text, but after looking at a few of these I think making a panel out of them would make it look more like a picture and less of a poster.

Yes, those have been posted before, but this thread has gotten so long that most people don't/can't read it all, so bringing up those links from time to time is very helpful.

Also, I got your PM. I will do some looking tonight.

Thanks for the links. Found a bunch of the textless posters I've been looking for. Can anyone point me to an easy way to resize them and add multiple ones to a single file to make it easier to print them out at spoonflower? So far I can't seem to figure out a way to get them to print out at 24x36 with a 5 inch border without having to use 2 yards per print. I think if I get multiple images into a single file, then I won't have to use 2 yards for every single one, right? I don't have photoshop.

Has anybody come across some good James Bond images?
I would like to do 5-6 full height Bond's in shooting or gun pose
Similar to this but not a caricature
What sort of resolution would be needed to pull full height (~6ft) off

Spoonflower recommends 150dpi.

6' = 72 inches x 150 dpi = 10,800 pixels on the long edge.

So I suspect you'll need to upscale the highest resolution file you can find.

I have been trying to find a Hi-Resolution photo of this image (or one very similar,i.e., with Star Wars printed on it, etc. would be fine)., something that could be used to make a roughly 29" High x 42" wide fabric poster. I have seen it referred to as a Star Wars Saga poster.



Anyone know where I can find a high enough resolution photo for that?

THanks!

Tineye.com looks pretty slick.. I tested a few others out, and works pretty easily.

You can try Perfect Resize 9. There is a free 30-day trial last time I checked. If you like it, buy it. If not, 30 days ought to be plenty of time to do what you need to. I used it for my posters and the results were great.

I have a version at 5500x3750, but it has the text on it. If you want it, send me a PM and I can email it to you.

I have been in New York and Dallas (where I currently am) this week for work. Hoping to get through some of the requests this weekend for the Photoshop work. Probably won't happen when I get home tomorrow (Friday) as I don't think that the family would be too happy about that right when I got home, but hopefully Saturday and Sunday I can get the 4 requests and 17 posters done that came in as requests this week.

Sometimes I wish that I had a more powerful travel laptop, instead of a small one (light and a handy size)... Then I could work on these from the hotels.
