Welcome to HDTV_Caps!


Owner/Admin: emily_reich

THIS COMMUNITY IS FOR HD (aka high definition) SCREENCAPS ONLY. Do not post icons or other graphics. A screencap is an unaltered image captured from a video source. They are not resized, cropped, or otherwise adjusted, unless the adjustments improve the image's quality. For example: correcting brightness or contrast in an image that is too dark / cropping away the blackspace around a cap, usually from movies/tv shows in widescreen format / resizing to make it the correct aspect ratio / deinterlacing.

WHAT CONSTITUTES A HD SCREENCAP? ANSWER: the source and the size of the cap.

Size: the resolution for HD DVD and Blu-Ray is 1920x1080, and for HD broadcasts 1920x1080, 1440x1080 or 1280x720. Caps may not be smaller than these specifications, or approximately that when black borders have been cropped off - ie. 1920x810.

Source: the caps must have been made from a high definition material - either a HD broadcast, HD trailer, HD-DVD/Blu-Ray discs, or re-encodes that retain the HD resolution. Caps made from regular DVDs or other sources and enlarged to 1920x1080 or 1280x720 are not acceptable, nor are caps made from HD material but which were taken at a lesser resolution than 1280 pixels wide.

ALL SCREENCAP POSTS SHOULD BE POSTED AS A NEW POST TO THE COMMUNITY. When posting more than one movie/tv series show title, please use a seperate post for each title. Don't post caps in comments to other posts. Television episodes are okay to be posted together, as long as they're all from the same series.

USE THE SUBJECT LINE. All posts must have the film/tv series title in the subject line of the post. Cap posts without this necessary information will be deleted. No exceptions!

SAMPLE CAPS ARE REQUIRED. You must provide at least one sample cap in your post. Sample caps must be the same copy as the caps in you gallery or zip - no resizing etc. to save ie. bandwitdh. You cannot tell what the quality of the actual cap will be if the sample has been reduced or increased in size. Exempt from this rule are TV series' episodic posts when the quality of caps is the same as in a previous, sample including post of the same tv series, from the same poster.

As of October 21, 2009, all new posts will be archived by tagging. You're welceme to tag all your new posts if there's already a suitable tag available - if not, please use the "!need a tag" to tag it and I'll take care of it. If you forget or don't want to add tags, don't worry - I'll be keeping an eye out and will add all missing tags.

Requests, for the time being, will still be archived in memories.

CHECK THE MEMORIES AND TAGS BEFORE MAKING A REQUEST. As of October 21, 2009, all new posts are file in the tags. I'm gradually going through the memories and adding tags to old posts. Before making a request, check both tags and memories to see if what you want has already been posted.


- Credit the poster in the manner they request in their post. Some posters don't care about credit, while others prefer that you credit the community, and yet others prefer that you credit the poster her(him)self.
- Do your best to follow any rules or wishes a poster lists in their post in regards to commenting, sharing etc.

These rules will be updated as necessary. (Last updated: October 21, 2009)
