I paid for and uploaded a poster image for my film, True Love -  - and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4088170/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_1 - and I made sure to follow all the specs, but when you view the page and the photo itself, it appears to be low resolution (looks a little soft and pixelated). I have the original image I uploaded and it's nice and sharp and hi-res. How can I get the full quality version up there (or at least one that's not so low-res looking). I'd like to avoid paying another $35 since I followed all the guidelines. Thanks, Ben.

It looks fine to me; do you have the image uploaded anywhere else online to compare?

The filmmaker said the original poster image uploaded to IMDb was "nice and sharp and hi-res," so the question is, why is the poster image on IMDb not so sharp?
It looks fine to me ....
Does it?  It looks soft to me.

The Dropbox link mentioned below is no longer available for comparison, but FWIW, I compared a similar image found on the filmmaker's website.  (It is not the same image, it has a different composition, but it is comparable.)  It is noticeably a bit sharper than the poster image on IMDb.

Hey Vincent, thanks for the quick response. The only other place I have the proofs is in this dropbox folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1i7zwf3mvy1fttz/AADxXrHXnkWu6gFPhvkIU67ka?dl=0

Viewing them in dropbox yields the same results, but if you download them, you'll see a huge difference and that the current pic up on IMDb is much blurrier by comparison, even compared to the "Low Res" ones which are still higher than the minimum requirements, but are small enough in file size to fit.

If Tifs are no good, you can simply change the suffix to .jpg and it should work.

Thanks,
Ben

Hello???? I'm still waiting for an answer. I thought $35 would get my picture to the page and it would look professional. I urge you to compare the image on IMDb to the images in the link I sent and give me a response. Notice how the title looks soft in the picture on your site but not in my link? I'm trying to make this page look as professional as possible for people who visit it.
