Old video game advertisements

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm pretty new to this site and to be honest have not browsed a ton yet, but would be there be any interest in scans of old video game advertisements from comic books and the like?  There may already be plenty on the site for all I know so apologies in advance if that is the case.  I would include some but the ones I have scanned are too big of a file size.  They're from a project I'm working on so I have a lot to be scanned

We currently have a few thousand ads in our advertisement Gallery, but there's always room for more.  So long as they are properly edited (straightened, cropped, physical flaws like creases/rips/writing/etc eliminated in Photoshop, colors/blacks/whites adjusted as necessary - in other words, generally made to be as beautiful as possible) they should be approved.  As for file size, resize them to around 1920px high (2200 is OK, too, but a 300dpi scan of over 3000px height is too large) and save as a jpg before uploading.  The filename should be the game's name, and in the details box it would be nice to write a brief description of the game as well as developer/publisher/release date info.  Ads should of course be uploaded to the Gallery folder of the game system the game was published for.

Oh, and be sure to double-check that we don't already have the ad in the Gallery before uploading.  They should be sorted alphabetically.
