Thank you for the great screencaps! There are so many pics that I saved from you that I hope to turn into icons one day. :)

Thank you!!!

That's great, Frodosweetstuff: spread the beauty around. (All my icons are made from the screencaps, too. I am not an icon artist; I don't do anything fancy to them beyond sharpening them up in their extra-small size. But I just want to look at the picture, when it comes down to it!)

I've been meaning to make a big pic spam with your screencaps so that more people will know about you and your wonderful archive. Shall do that one day (but need to make a few icons first before everyone snags the best ones !!! :D).

Your screencaps are gorgeous! :)

[re-posted for silly error about a link]

You are so kind. Thank you for the compliment. I think my icons are rather plain compared to ones people have applied effects to. But I like to see the One Lad clearly.

If you do such a post, you may want to point them to the Screencap table of links. I've made it very nice, with a scroll-through list of thumbnail links to indicate what's in each entry, all lined up in film order. The exceptions are entries like the one for Frodo waiting for Sam [not "Frodo", lol!] in Tol Eressea. I used caps from FotR although the part of the story being illustrated was at the end. I need to file those twice. In film order for the caps, but story order for the discussion and poem that went with them.

But the table is very clear and handy otherwise. My only doubts about it is that it's such a big file, the table page, it takes a while to load. If you ever open it, Frodosweetstuff, see what you would think about eventually making multiple pages of screencap links with one master page. The master page would give links to the separate pages--one for FotR, one for TTT, one for RotK, one for Extras and odd images, one for Elijah in other roles. That way the link pages should come up much more quickly. But maybe it's not really necessary.

The One Lad! *beams* That is great! :)

I just clicked on the link and you are right - it takes a while to load, even with DSL and a speedy browser. I think your idea of the master page with links is good.

Still, shall link to the sceencap entries (I hope I will not forget and just link to your LJ. If I do, please remind me!!!)

I just realized that I haven't seen all of these posts and that I need to work my way through some of the earlier ones! :)

Thank you!

So you find it takes a while to load, too? It must be that the links take up space. The images are all very small so it can't just be them. When I finish the screencap project (a few more month's work?) I'll break them up into a system of smaller pages with a master page, as I described. That should help a lot. When I open the table of links for the manips or Jan's poems, they come up quickly, but they have a tenth of the entries.

Yes, the screencaps were begun in 2005. I was very timid about tweaking them then, so the contrast and focus is not as sharp as I now like to make them. The oldest caps are from the opening of FotR. Later I skipped around, doing Behind the Scenes caps and some from the end of RotK. By the time I made the caps for the RotK end scenes I was a much bolder tweaker!

It seemed to me it was the pics - I could see the writing but the pics took ages to appear - and I have DSL 6000 and have switched to a quicker browser.

I like your tweaking! You do a great job! You're like someone who works on a raw diamond... :)
