    There was a link on Matt DeVillier's site that lead to another site that had alternate Cover Art Inserts for the James Bond series. Can someone please post this link or email it to me. Thanks for your kind help with this request. [​IMG]

    I wonder if Zinema will be creating a Casino Royale cover? Hmm...

    They should print out the correct size Hank, as I have printed out a few in the past. You should use legal size paper or standard sized paper with an extension taped on to fool the printer into thinking that the paper is legal size.

    I emailed him a couple of days ago and this was his reply:

    Hi Steven,

    Yes, I'm sure I'll do a Casino Royale cover, but I'm just so busy with work
    lately, it's probably not going to be for a while. Hopefully, I'll release
    it the same time I release the cover for Die Another Day.

    Thanks for your patience!



    So, it's coming, but we're all just gonna have to wait...
    Meanwhile, that ugly Casino Royale cover really sticks out with that beautiful row of Bond titles.

    Does anyone know if he will make a cover for the bonus DVD that comes with the new box set (I don't have that DVD since I bought the previous box set, but I hope to buy one on EBAY.) If anyone was an extra one, please let me know...

    Thanks!!

    I use an Epson c80 printer, and set print area to maximum, and print size to 10.8" x 7.25". Covers print out perfectly on 8 1/2 by 11 paper.

    I'm using a Lexmark Z11, what settings do you mean? I have no idea what graphics software I'm using. [​IMG]

    For printer settings I mean:
    1. print area example=maximum
    2. size of paper used example=legal
    3. orientation example=landscape vs portrait
    4. type of paper example=glossy, matte, etc

    I use Paint Shop Pro Ver 7. I use it to open the Cover Art File(Which hopefully is in the jpg format)after it is unzipped if in the zipped format initially. Once I have the file open in Paint Shop Pro I print it from that application after making any adjustments that I may feel that I need to make, such as making sure that it is the right size for the single keepcase
    (single:3240 x 2175 pixels). Before printing I use the Print Preview to make sure the printer settings are correct:
    1. size of paper used=legal
    2. orientation=landscape
    3. type of paper
    I use an Epson C80, so my directions may need to be altered to fit your printer's settings.

    PS If your not using graphics software such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop or another major brand then it is possible that the file is being opened in one of the applications that Microsoft includes in Windows, such as Paint. This may not allow you finer control over your image.

    Jeff, the Bond covers are VERY large .tif files. About 20mb apiece.

    If you have photoshop, use that. Just set to legal size, landscape, and whatever paper you are using. I use regular size glossy paper with a two-inch strip of paper taped to the "back" end so the printer thinks I'm using legal size. Set the left margin to about .5", and print.

    Jeff,
    Thanks. I am using Windows Paint. I don't have any settings for print area. I do have settings at landscape, type of paper, Legal. Looks like I'll be ordering from DVD Depot.
    Thanks for the help.[​IMG]
