I submitted a number of still images from a print of THE CHINESE BUNGALOW (1940). The quality, I thought, was acceptable. This movie is hard to find, and better prints probably don't exist; but the images were rejected.

Hi J. -

I can see that these images were not accepted due to the quality of the images not meeting our guidelines, as these images are a bit fuzzy and some out of focus, they have been rejected.

I went ahead and submitted the sharpened images from the title sequence, the ones I posted above. Thanks, ACT1! These might well go through.

Hi All -
I'm just following up here to clarify a bit further our stance on images for older titles, this is very subjective and our staff is primarily reviewing the the age of the title and the quality of the image, this is why we may approve some images and not others.

Thank you, Michelle.

Thanks to ACT1's suggestion, I can re-submit some of the images with better quality, and maybe the staff will give them the thumbs up.

I'm not so sure if it is entirely subjective. Algorithms capable of image analysis are now available to the public. I suspect sharp images have more information in them the blurry ones. Nevertheless, sometimes it is hard to guess what the details of the original representation were if those details were lost due to desaturation, compression or scale reduction.
