    Yes there is a problem with those, originals are very big, but you can trick them with appending size on the end of the file

    ie:

    Image seen on IMDB:
    http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMjE5NDQ5OTE4Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTE3NDIzMw@@._V1_.jpg

    with trick:

    http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMjE5NDQ5OTE4Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTE3NDIzMw@@._V1_SX400.jpg

    SX means X axis (width), IMDB will auto scale Y axis. You can play with SX value which will do do the job and use that in scraper

    PS :) also you can use SY[value] if its more proper, than IMDB will autoscale X axis

    Thanks Deda - very useful info! And also should save a lot of bandwith.
    But what happens, if picture is smaller - will it be upscaled?
    Will have to test that a bit ;-)

    @Deda - is that only supported on IMDB or any other sites?
