NOT EVERYONE HAS TO DOWNLOAD THESE FILES.
These files are a convenience for the persons who use the program mostly offline.
As most users use Coollector Movie Database with their computer connected to the internet,
the pictures are downloaded and saved to their computer automatically as they browse the database.
You have the choice between 2 versions of the movie pictures:
the thumbnails or the full size (the full size will
of course take much more space on your hard disk.
THE SMALL VERSION OF THE MOVIE POSTERS
The total size is 1 GB. It was split into an 11-part RAR file:
THE LARGE VERSION OF THE MOVIE POSTERS
This version of the pictures was split into 3 sets:
the first set with the most popular movies,
the second set with the average popular movies,
and the third set with the less popular movies.
If you want, it's possible to skip the third or even the second set.
The first set is 1.44 GB, and was split into a 16-part RAR file:
The second is 1.31 GB, and was split into a 15-part RAR file:
The third set is 1.05 GB, and was split into a 12-part RAR file:
HOW TO UNZIP A SET OF RAR FILES
To begin with, you'll have to download all the parts into a same location.
Then you'll only need to unzip the first part, because your unzipper
will automatically move on, unzipping all the other parts.
LOCATE THE IMAGES FOLDER
Simply use the menu "Tools->Locate the images folder".
LOCATION ON A PC
If you're using Windows and the portable version of Coollector,
the images must be placed inside "Coollector\Images\MoviesDpt\"
For Windows XP and the normal version, the location is
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Coollector\Images\MoviesDpt\"
For Windows Vista/7/8 with the normal version, the location is
LOCATION ON A MAC
On a Mac, the location is different whether you have the Mac App Store version or not.
If you're using the version from our website, the images must be placed inside
"~/Library/Application Support/Coollector Movie Database/Images/MoviesDpt/"
If you're using the Mac App Store version, Sandboxing makes it a bit more complex...
"~/Library/Containers/com.Coollector.CoollectorMovieDatabase/Data/Library/Application Support/Coollector Movie Database/Images/MoviesDpt/"
Starting with OS X Lion, the folder "~/Library/" is now hidden.
To find it, you'll have to use the "Go" menu of the Finder.
At first, the "Go" menu doesn't list the "~/Library/" folder,
but holding down the option key will make it appear.
