I'm looking for MBP, MI, R, VAN sets (names from Forge folder). Where can I find them? I don't even know what are these sets' full names (except MBP - I guess it is Media Inserts).

More Releases > DOM - Dominaria

Hard to even decide what cards to showcase from this gorgeous set. Thanks to Card Kingdom for the quick turnaround on these scans and Scryfall for image processing.

Thank you for the quick release of Dominaria

A few cards and tokens might need some rescan/reprocessing, but I know it's already a lot of work so a big thanks for sharing this. Other than that, I did not find any other problem, great job!

Wow, that was quick. Thanks a bunch. Using them in Forge now.

I noticed the size of the folder was pretty low compared to previous releases. Are the images lower quality than usual or is it just a compression issue?

I put them through an image optimization pass. It's possible it's tuned lower than it was previously but I didn't see any issues on my pre-release examination. If the actual card images seem to be impacted let me know and I can reprocess.

I want to thank you guys as always for your amazing work. That said, I too have noticed that the Dominaria scans appear to be lower quality than usual. Compare for example these two drakes from HOU and Dominaria (200dpi downloaded from the mega folder):
Aerial Guide.full.jpg
Academy Drake.full.jpg


Compared to the HOU scans, the DOM scans appear blurrier, darker, lower contrast and lower saturation. As someone else pointed out, if we compare the 200dpi folder size between DOM and AKH, it has dropped from 44MB to 19MB for about the same number of scans.

In writing this post, I also noticed the DOM scans posted in this thread looked slightly better than the ones in the mega folder. If we compare the example Artificer's Assistant, it's a 120KB image compared to 68.5KB from megadownload. In comparison, the mega file is slightly blurrier and has increased artifacting, which is indicative of a jpeg file that has been resaved at a lower quality setting. However I would note that even the 120KB image appears lower quality in comparison to the HOU scans, for the aforementioned reasons.

I only compared to AKH (300dpi) quality and size-wise. Whoever processed the AKH scans used quite a bit of sharpening, so the difference between those and DOM is pretty noticeable.

HOU looks very natural in comparison.

I agree. It's all due to sharpening.

Personally, I download the XLHQ's and make my own HQ's with the sharpening set to my own taste.

Hi All - first thank you for maintaining this site and page - it is invaluable as I still use Magic Workstation. One question on Born of the Gods. I still don't see 200 DPI scans available on the Mega folders provided - all other sets look good but the only scans I see are on the main link with the higher resolution full card scans. There is a Born of the Gods folder but it doesn't appear to have a 200DPI scans file.

This is the one set in the last 5-6 years I still don't have full images for and would be great to complete it.

Thanks!

I've reprocessed the DOM images and reuploaded, that should hopefully address any image quality concerns people had.

I've also uploaded a new version of the XLN images after going through one-by-one to correct colors on them as the cards in this set had a much poorer, more inconsistent print quality than usual.

Thanks, it's quite a big improvement. The artifacts are decreased and the contrast is much better. Many thanks!

Hi guys!
Where are Theros, Journey into the Nyx, and Born of the Gods 200, 300 DPI Cards? The only files available in the mega.nz site are the tokens and advertisement cards.
The old sets (Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, Revised Edition, Revised Edition "Summer Magic" ) torrent doesn't work. Any thoughts on where to get HQ old sets?

for some reason, I cannot get the image for the Battle Bonds Planeswalker pair, Will and Rowan Kenrith, to appear in Forge. not sure why. every version seems to not work using the uploader. Is it just me or are others having the same issue?
