    I really like the composition of your second banner Pricey, the two distances on the shots of them makes it really interesting, it's great. How are you getting your screenshots? This might be a deliberate texture you've opted for, but they look like they're low resolution shots and you could get sharper pics to use if you wanted.

    Thanks Stoney. They were the highest resolution I could find. If you can recommend a site that would be great.

    Getting screencaps is tough. I have a load on file I took from a site called Civilised James just before it closed down. But often I play the eps on my computer and take my own screengrabs. I've had a quick look at some of the sites Nina recommended and Screencapped doesn't cover all of S5 and only the opener of S6, but S4 is in there (look around pages 29 & 30 of Something Blue for the caps that are around the ones you've got, but there aren't exact matches). Shadow of Reflection has some too, but I have seen some on this site that look a bit warped in the past, not all though. Have a look around page 53 (clicking on the pics will bring up a larger version, but they still aren't really sharp). On the site buffylover recommended, leave me the white, they don't appear to have all eps, but they do have Something Blue. Around page 8 might give you a sharper one of the closer up pic.

    I've had a look through the screencaps I've saved. I have roughly similar shots, but they still aren't great resolution. You can always try taking a screengrab of these if you like and run them through some adjustments. I'll put them under a spoiler just to not clutter the thread.

    Thanks Stoney. I got the images from Screencapped and I use Shadows of Reflection. I think it must be something I do that always makes the images look a bit blurry

    Priceless I tried to screencap some of the HD Buffy videos which you can find {here}. I screen captured them on 'VLC'.

    Spoiler:













    1920x1090px I work mostly on Tumblr size graphics and these would be absolutely perfect for smaller graphics like banners and Tumblr even wallpapers!.

    Thank you so much buffylover They are perfect. I love your recent post of HD Buffy and I'm going to attempt to screengrab from them when I get a bit of time.

    Wow buffylover they are brilliant screencaps! It's fantastic that you are doing the whole show, such commitment! Are you happy for these and the others to be used freely, with credit of course?

    I have to admit I'm quite anti the HD version for watching just because of the problems they didn't address when they did it, but I have zero shame using them for fanart.

    And of course, you can use these screencaps no credit needed. Just be thankful for that Tumblr I found! because I know I am.

    I know there are really great! I was truly impressed with them and I'm now currently experimenting with some of my own specific scenes in the new piece I'm currently working on.

    But what I love about the screen captures Stoney is the size! because I work small so there would be even better when working on a Tumblr size graphics!

    You are so welcome Priceless There was no need for the rep, but thank you! You should definitely go try and screencap on the HD versions I use 'VLC'.
