Movie Poster Artwork Quality Improved

Posted on Tuesday, March 4th, 2008 3:16 PM by Scott Jentsch

Now that we have a better, stronger server to work with, one of the first improvements that have been made is increased picture quality of poster artwork.

Depending on your ability to discern finer quality points, you may or may not notice a big difference between the two images above.

In this example, you will see that the "After" image to the right has less artifacting around the text at the top of the page and the top edge of Owen Wilson's boot, his leg, and arm. Another item to look at is the quality of the red title text, which is traditionally very difficult for compression programs to handle well at higher compression levels.

This is just a small example of the improvements that I promised in my Journal post "13 Years and Counting!" from last month. Watch for announcements of more new features in the Site News section and RSS feed!
