    I bought a bunch of DVDs locally from a Jumbo Video bankruptcy sale. The discs came in Jumbo Video rental cases, so there's no original cover art. I asked the person handling the liquidation, where the orginal cases went, and he didn''t know. I've found many of the covers online, but some are really bad quality. If you own these discs and can scan the covers for me , I'll Paypal you $1US for each cover. All I need is a 300dpi or more scan of the cover, via email. My email account won't handle files larger than 1.5 meg so try to keep them as JPGs no larger than that. I need the following scans:

    Joe Dirt
    The Omen SE
    Whispers: An Elephants Tale
    Fast Times at Ridgemont High SE
    Wild Things
    Fly Away Home SE
    On Golden Pond
    The New Guy
    Jeepers Creepers
    The Neverending Story 2
    Masters of the Universe
    Friday the 13th Part 4
    Harley Davidson & the Marlborough Man
    Jackie Chan's Crime Story

    If you provide me with any of these scans, I'd greatly appreciate the favor!!

    Marc.

    Try DVD Cover Art. They have a lot of covers, and were setting up a system where a local Kinkos would print and mail the covers to you. (To get a ink-jet printer to correctly print an Amaray case cover takes a bit of messing around with it.)

    Bob, thats for the advice, but Matt's site doesn't have the particular scans I'm looking for. He has just about everything else, though!

    I can do Wild Things for you. I don't have PayPal, though, so I'd do it for free.
    These ~1.8MB 300dpi high-quality JPEGs have been touched up a bit in Photoshop to smooth over the appearance of the half-tone printing process (or whatever it's called):

    If you'd like the direct output from the scanner, let me know. These ~80MB TIFF files are untouched and unprocessed.

    I can do "On Golden Pond" for you, if you would like me to. No charge.

    I have the original art work for the original issue of Fly Away home. You wouldnt happen to have a Young Guns cover by any chance?

    Marc, I've emailed you the "On Golden Pond" cover art & chapter insert. I'd be glad to do any other scans for you if I happen to have the particular DVD. Enjoy![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thank you VERY much everyone!

    I looks like I have (or will have shortly) all scans I needed except for Whispers:An Elephants Tale, Crime Story, and Harley Davidson/Marlboro Man. As always, the members of this forum have been very friendly and helpful

    If anyone has any 3 of the remaining covers I need, just let me know.

    Jeff Whitford,

    Yes, I have a scan of Young Guns I can send you.



    Marc.
