thats like taking a mp3 that was ripped at 128kps .. re-encoding it to 256kps and passing it off as being "higher quality" ..
Its quite simple:
I download posters at 2000px-5000px from moviepostersdb.com and save them as .jpg
I have a script that can make a copy of these files and rename them to .tbn and then resize them to whatever dimensions I want. Previously I generated .tbn files as 500px high. Then djh said use 1080px posters so I deleted my 500px .tbn files and made a new set from the original 2000px-5000px .jpgs at 1080px.
I did NOT resize from 500px to 1080px I resized from the original high quality ones I downloaded originally.
The point I'm getting at is if you download your posters in as high a quality as you can find its best to keep a copy of them and not resize the originals so if you want to make 1500px high posters next year for 'Aeon Two' you will be able to easily.
