Mood theme help

My Toy Story DVDs won't let me pause in VLC, so I can't really do screencaps of specific frames. :-( So looks like no Toy Story mood theme, unless someone can help me find a workaround. Never mind! Temporary glitch! ;)

So, I started working on the film noir theme. Which do you think works better -- zooming in on specific facial expressions or zooming back to include more of the scene? And do you think these should be bigger? I went widescreen on Blade Runner, since it's a widescreen film, but most film noirs were presented in a ratio that's closer to a square.

Which do you like better?

A
24(85.7%)
B
4(14.3%)


(Also, I've discovered a really neat shortcut for uploading mood themes: You can upload a zip file to Supload.com and it will extract all the files and give you all the individual links. As far as I know, those file links are good for, well, as long as photobucket or any other free photo site. Beats manually uploading each of 132 images!)

That's what I get for not cheating and looking at the poll answers first, lol.

Tee hee, LOL. Well, some will have to be cropped a little looser to allow the scene to make sense, like this one.

If anyone even ends up taking it! ;)

When I do mood themes, I always go with closer whenever possible, but that might just be me, heh.

Hon, if you ever want me to set you up with some space on my domain for uploading things like this, to make it way easier, please don't hesitate to tell me. Seriously. I have more space than I could ever shake a stick at, and I'd be MORE than happy to share with you. Email me if you're interested, doll. Really. :)

Awww, thank you, hon! I will totally take you up on that! :-) *smoooch*

(And I think I'm going to go a tad bigger on the crops for this one...)

Cool, we'll get something set up then for you, hee!

You're really making me want to mood theme again. Bad, Halfdutch, bad! Hehehe. I actually do think I'll drag my laptop to work again (I did for the first time this week) and pray for quiet time so I can do some capping and whatnot. And maybe homework, if time permits, heh. ;)

Ooh! Yaay! *bounces*

And heh, my new time-wasting obsession is contagious! I have just about all the SPN eps downloaded, so I could work on an S2 mood theme, I suppose! After 3 eps, LOL.

But I'm kind of dying to do the Raiders one!

Just email me with what you want your subdomain to be, and I'll get it going!

Heee! I think I did mine after (8 or 10) last year, so it's not so crazy, hehe. There's tons of things I'd love to mood theme, but getting ready to do one takes SO long it seems, bah. :/

oh noes :(

I would have loved a Toy Story mood theme! boo hoo for technology not cooperating.

FYI I finally put the Sawyer one up I had, inspired to try by your new mood theme. While doing so, through photobucket, I've learned that there is a new compatible browser that they advertise there, Flock. with it you can do batch image upload in photobucket, and it's supposedly compatible with LJ to make picspam and such more easy to do. you drag and drop to upload, it's quite easy. I finally put lost and lots of pictures in my photobucket, task I had been putting off because I hate doing it one by one.

Oh cool! Enjoy your new mood theme!

And the Toy Story mood theme is a go! I was just having a temporary glitch there. ;)

That's cool about batch uploads! Doing it one by one is a pain!
