Many of them are deformed. Users should be told by admins to take proper screenshots and not deformed 16/9. Don't you have eyes? That just hurts mine. And you even promote a deformed screenshot on the very main page, what a shame... Klow 01:01, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

That's a matter opinion. Actually, most of the screenshots were not taken by users, they are promotionals released by WB.--Matoro183 (Talk) 10:21, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Well I know the WB official screens, I have tons of them, and they are not deformed... Klow 11:16, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Neither of the pictures on the main page seem deformed to me. Can you be specific which one you are talking about? Also a 16/9 ratio is not "deformed" unless the picture is not supposed to be 16/9 ratio. 16/9 is just a wide screen format. I know we do have some pictures which are stretched to be made square (although I think most of them are gone now -- we got rid of them last summer I think). If there are ones that seem to be out of proporation post a list here and we'll see if we can replace them. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:41, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Here's what you have: File:Snape duelling with Harry.JPG. Here's how it should be: [1]. See what I mean? It's just striking. Klow 14:50, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Ah yes, well that's a difficult picture to see what the correct size is -- there isn't really any references to draw off of. Why don't you upload new versions of the pictures that are "wrong"? Anyone can upload new pictures. Simply click "Upload a new version of this file". -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:57, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I know how it's done, I've been doing wiki edit for years, and I'm bureaucrat on Combine OverWiki, and I worked a lot on the Wookieepedia pics in my day. But there are too many of them, I won't do it, sorry... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Klow (talkcontribs).

Perhaps you misunderstand me. First off, I'm not belittling you, I'm assuming you don't know how to do it because it saves me an edit if you don't know and have to ask and a lot of people wouldn't ask if they don't know so I'm offering the information to start with. Regardless, I'm not asking you to do all of them, but I'm just saying if you come across one it'd be great if you could do it, that's how wiki's get better, everyone does a little bit. Even if you don't want to/don't have a new version to upload, as I said before, make a list on this page that references them so the problem can be fixed. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:35, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't have much time for this. But I think a category would be a good idea, so they would all be gathered at one place for a more convenient replacement that could be done in an undefined period. Klow 01:19, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I believe the screencap of the Snape-and-Harry duel from the HBP trailer that I uploaded preserves the original aspect ratio. However, I'm unable to restore that version, because the file is locked from edits by non-admins as it is currently featured on the main page. Starstuff (Owl me!) 16:40, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Done. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:56, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
