I was just curious why the covers (and other images too) are limited to such small sizes and resolutions?
The Movie Database (TMDb) actually encourages higher quality images.

They were high when we first set them but they are now considered quite low resolution. We haven't bumped them up because ideally we want to keep everything in very specific sizes to make it easier for media programs to use. With the new site/API we are planning to up the allowed resolutions.
Please don't PM me. Post in the forums instead unless there is a very good reason for a PM or I won't respond.

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to hear there is a new site in the works. It's also nice to know there will be greater resolutions allowed.
