I plan to share all my photos galleries. For that I opened a yahoo group for movies whose title begins by A. Those photos may be downloaded by everyone who registers as a member (free service).

All photos are 600x450 for 4/3 DVDs , or 800x450 for 16/9 DVDs or Blu-rays. Aspect ratio is respected (black bars are as on screen). I have between 5 and 10 photos for each of my ~1000 movies.

This will need many hours to open groups for each letter, and upload photos, so I will do it only if sufficiently people are interested.  If not, for the few users interested by photos of movies that are in my collection, they will be able to send me PMs so that I send them a zip file.

Well, I observe this proposal is a flop. Only 9 users voted they were interested though more that one hundred read this post, and nobody tried to see only one of the 300+ photos that are already online. Thanks anyway to everyone who took the time to vote, including those who were not interested.

So I'll stop the experience, but I'm ready to send zip files for specific movies that I have in my collection to everyone who asks for them, as I already do for some friends who have no possibility to take screencaptures.

I would like to thank you for your kind offer, but as I don't use the gallery feature myself, I personally have no need for the photographs. I hope this offer is still valid if I decide to change my take on the feature in the future 

I believe the lack of responses are an indication of how relatively few users (at least here in forum) use the feature, not that people wouldn't appreciate your offer.

I integrated photos gallery in my layout, on a window which is exaxtly 16/9 ratio. Now, I couldn't imagine my profiler without those photos (or with production photos, that we can find on movies sites, and that are not "exactly as on screen").

The reason why no one has joined the group might be because it is in French. It can be a bit hard to join the group if you don't know the language.

Personally, I haven't used galleries but it looks interesting.

Most of photos on this site do not represent what we have on screen. They have different size ratio, and generally do not fit with gallery's window. Though this site may be interesting for production photos, I prefered build a screen captures collection.

Well, to join you just have to give your yahoo ID and password, and in the menu, photos are in "Photos" folder. Not so difficult to find.

Do you seriously suggest that we should enter a site we do not understand the language of? 
It doesn't matter if "all you have to do is enter your ID and Password" - it is arrogant beyond belief to suggest this would interest non french-speaking users. 

In my opinion, at least...

The only thing you have to do on the site is to click on "Photos" in the menu, then download photos you choose in a thumbnail collection. In think I could do that on spanish, italian, norvegian, portuguese, zulu and croatian sites... though I do not speak those languages ... just examples...

I do not know if reybr speaks french, but he succeeded...



Anyway, I can do whatever I want, I'll always be arrogant beyond belief for you. Have a nice day

its a nice idear but only if the picture come from the movie.

But how do we chose what scene that sould be there???
Exemple: the Alien scene you take is not the one I would take for that movie. So this will be hard to make a rule or we could have many scene and we take the one we like

I have generally 8 to 10 photos for each movie. That allows to choose among them.

If American or English users know a site in english where I could easily share those photos, I can consider it.

I don't know about others but I have only just logged in to see this. I'm interested but as I'm at work I haven't logged in to the French site (but will find time this evening when I get home from work).

Thanks for your hard work with this.

cheers

Looks nice, Surfeur. Thanks for screencaps of your layout. Already downloaded the photos for "American Beauty" - will try the feature with that movie later today or tomorrow.
