Extracting of the images

Last updated by Darren on 05 July 2009

You may be interested in the process that allows me to extract the images from the films.

I have worked for many years in the IT industry, primarily as a computer programmer. My skills allowed me to write an application that extracts the images from a DVD. I set the period at which images are extracted (for example, one image every 100 frames) and these images are written to my computers disk.

I then spend a long time choosing which images to use. Once I have done this I create thumbnail versions of each of the images. I also optimise the full size images to ensure the smallest amount of bandwidth is used. This web site uses a lot of bandwidth, mainly because of the high number of high quality images used. I think these images are an integral part of the website, and the effort and cost are worth it.

The use of these images is not officially permitted. I have unofficial permission from the publishers of Baraka. But I am on very good terms with them and believe I could easily get official permission. I use the images from the films in the hope that I will not be asked to remove them, as this website promotes the films.
