    You may want to edit your post so that the spoiler is blacked out.
    (Use the highlight mark-up codes with black as the color.)

    You can take a look through this thread in the ROTS spoilers allowed forum: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Revenge_of_the_Sith_(Spoilers_Allowed)/b10331/12970297/?3969]Ep. 3 pictures thread[/link] It might have what you are looking for. :)

    Awesome sites, aesop2021 and gatodama! I always seem to have the worst time, locating pics to use for drawings, and these sites provide a banquet of images to choose from! I'm going to be visiting here a lot, I think! ;) Thanks, people! :D

    but by high resolution work

    You never mentioned high-resolution you just said good quality, a image can be good quality and be 100x100 pixels. The highest resolution promotional stuff you can find of ANH will be on that web site I posted. Back in those days they dident send out as much promotional material as they do now which is usualy the stuff that is in high resolution.
    [hr]
    Btw (if you hadent already found this out) when you click the images on the web site I posted if you click "Bild in Originalgrösse zeigen" it will enlarge the image considerably. e.g....

    [hr]
    I did a quick google image search for some high-quality anh stuff, this is the best I could find...

    Let me tell you, this is a great idea. For someone who does mostly image-editing with an editor on the computer, this thread is a life-saver.

    This is the best site I have found for reference of Anakin, from all the movies. there are alot of Episode III pictures. There is also a huge section with Padme pictures.

    Hope this helps some of you.

    Not to sound rude or anything, but just give it time. This is a slow traffic forum unlike the ROTS or JCC forums - give people time to actually find this stuff. There's not much else that can be done.

    Jedi-master, there's a lot of freeware .GIF animation programs out there. Just run a google search for (shockingly enough) 'freeware GIF animators'. Or look through download.com. They're not that difficult to make, so if no one else has made any, you can give it a go yourself.

    Good luck!
