Pictures wanted

Post by Mystara » Tue Jun 26, 2012 7:39 am

H'lo,

I need some pictures for the website. I can probably get these by trawling through episodes of Knightmare. But I'm hoping that someone out there already has what I'm looking for (or knows more precisely where it can be found). If anyone can provide any tips, or the images themselves, I'd appreciate it greatly:
  • A gold bar or silver bar or gem (in order of preference)
    The knapsack
    The hunting/goblin horn
Pictures need to be pretty big. The typical photo of a gold bar on a clue room table is not big enough.

Many thanks

The clearest gem shots you'll find in the programme are probably the red gem on the clue table in Series 3 episode 7, or the green gem held up in front of the Eyeshield in Series 8 episode 4. But if they're too small, I'm not sure where you'll find anything bigger? (Ditto for gold bar and horn - I don't think they were seen any closer than on clue room tables.) The team in Series 6 episode 9 found a gold bar, a silver bar *and* a horn on the same table, if that helps at all. :P

Regrettably, I'm afraid they're all just a bit too small.
Thanks for pointing them out though.

What about the knapsack? I don't believe it's a KM-community held prop, so my guess is that we can't simply photograph it. But is anyone aware of any closeups in the show?

I was expecting there to be a close-up in the first episode so I checked but there wasn't :(

What's the exact picture size/resolution you need (in pixels) just out of interest?

680 x 289 is good
940 x 400 is better

It's extremely difficult to get any images at these resolutions though, so I need them to be "as big as possible" to allow me to work my photoshop magic.

Knightmare Live has one (from their prop collection rather than Knightmare's, obviously).
