LBT screenshot collection
« on: June 20, 2018, 12:25:14 pm »
Well, here's an idea for a project if anyone is down to it helping me with it.

Mostly for artistic purposes, I sure would find it useful to have a substantial and well organized gallery of screenshots a few clicks away. It just isn't fun to skim through 10 movies before you find that one pose you're looking for you see? :wacko

Open questions right now are
Where to upload (does the forum actually allow multiple (like... 100+) pictures in one post? Admins?)
How to categorize the screencaps (e.g. Character/ mood, pose, ??? ; also, in addition, sort according to the movie/episode they appear in?)

Also, I'd kinda need a program that automatically saves a picture to my computer if I screenshot something, otherwise it's gonna take ages.  :sducky

What do you think? I can do the project alone if needed over my summer holidays but I'll need a good screencap program and a good option to make a gallery that is not one of those dreaded pic-hosting sites :P
Note to self: finally create that signature lazy bum! :P

Formally known as Hypnobrai until Nov 11, 2017.

I'm a big LBT fan and have seen all movies and TV series episodes. Waiting for a fifteenth film to be announced.
I love sharpteeth, especially the Horned Sharptooth, the Plated Sharptooth/Plates and the original Sharptooth.
I'm an admin on The Land Before Time Wiki, particularly the "Sharptooth admin" I suppose you could say.

https://landbeforetime.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Images nearly 10 000 images
I think the main issue here is that there is no organization, just one big list. The main purpose of this project is to be easily able to filter through images to narrow down to a particular character or expression. I would honestly find it easier to look for a scene in a movie then sift through 10,000 images.

The most ideal situation would be to use the images on the wiki but have some sort of database-esque setup where each picture could have several attributes (character, expression, etc) that we could sort through but I'm not sure if I would have the programming knowledge to do it, if it's possible to do on the wiki in the first place.


This is a good idea though and I would be willing to give you a hand with it. :smile

^ I agree with Flathead. I typically go to animationscreencaps.com (formerly Disney Screencaps) or go through my computer or Postimg gallery when I want to find a screencap. Also, Rhombus told me that they have 10GB of storage on the forum, so this gallery might have to not be internally-hosted on GOF. Accordingly, I'd suggest doing that on the wiki or hosting them externally. And yes, I'll gladly help the best that I can.

Well, I'll take a look at that Wiki database for sure though I don't think it'll be quite the best choice as for as organization is concerned.

I guess then the GoF mightn't be the first option to look at either.

Animationscreencaps is good but they just made a screencap every so many frames so a lot of critical frames are missing while a lot of boring ones are there :P Besides, a lot of their pictures are frequently down :/

As for the issue how to save screenshots to my computer, that kinda figured itself out haha. Who knew I had a pre-installed program capable of doing so (OneDrive)
