Blu-ray cover

Hello , can somebody please give me some help or advice on how to make High Definaion photo’s . A website i use for movie covers , usually has movie fronts in JPG fomat 4.61 MB one 5.41 MB and i think one cover was over 6 MB . Mine ( i take a photo using the snipping tool ) are usually about 102 kb sometimes 63.6 kb or 70.9 kb . Which isn’t too good when the image is printed . So any help on making better quality photos and pictures would be very much appreciated . Thank you .

Is a “snipping tool” what you’re using to get a screen capture? If so, screen captures only capture the image at the size it’s shown and resolution of your display, which is far lower than print resolutions.

I’m not quite sure what you’re doing or trying to achieve. Are you just trying to create artwork for personal Blu-ray disc covers? If so, and if the images you found online are five or six megabytes bit, why are you just taking screen capture of them to use. Why aren’t you just saving those images to your computer and working with them instead of the screen capture?

Just-B , I was going to upload a cover I had done . But I don’t know how .

Click the reply button, then just drag your artwork into the window. It does need to be in a format like jpeg or png, however.

I manged to get a cover to 5.80MB it did print . The cover was done using RonyaSoft CD DVD Label Maker , and Paint . ( if saved in PNG format it was a lot higher ) the image size is 10209x5575 . Its normally 3240x2175 I tried saving my image to that size using Paint and it ended up as 1.25MB . But using UnderCover10 it does print , it ain’t the best Blu-ray cover ever but it’s better than nowt . On the cover site they (super-impose I think it’s called where they have people standing side by side and merging together that’s what i’d like to be able to do .

The House II cover is an illustration. It was painted by an artist. Is there any software I can get , so I will be able to do covers like that . Thank you .

Software can’t mimic talent and experience. It takes many year of practice to do illustrations like that. Most illustrators use a combination of mediums, and not all of them involve software.
