    I don't know if this is the right forum to go to but picture gallery seemed too empty ...

    I wanted to hang a vintage Apple poster in my room and i didn't wanna pay for the originals. So i came to the idea to simply print them out and stick them around my room, but all of the images of the posters online were either crappy ebay pictures or VERY low res...I got to work and recreated 8 vintage apple posters using photoshop! They turned out quite nice! I will post a sample here and if you want to download all 8 posters just go to the mediafire link below..

    I originally posted this on /r/VintageApple and i thought that you guys on MacRumors might like it as well!

    Awesome job! I have two of the iBook clamshell ones up in my room, they look the same! Do you have any more you made? You said there were 8. ;)

    I wanted them hung up in my room too and was significantly disappointed by the quality of these posters. When I get home, I’m definitely going to use yours instead of the low res ones I currently have up. Thanks!

    Printed out everything! I decided it was time to replace my old ones with these far better and nicer looking ones. This time, I printed almost everything on card stock, except for the two Tangerine iBook ones since I ran out. I also used way less sticky tack as the last time I used huge globs of it and it bled through.

    Here are the old ones I was replacing, as well as the amount of Sticky Tack I didn’t use this time around.

    Lastly, here are where I hung them up around my room. Much better looking than the old ones!

    The iMac DV Special also was stretched out a bit (from a 2 picture composite?), even though the original has a different perspective for the rear iMac:

    These look fantastic! Great work! I particularly like the iMac G4 and the Power Mac G4.

    Do you feel like making some G5 based ones? :D :D :D

    I could do some, luckily the high resolution photos for the PowerMac G5 are available in the WaybackMachine archive of apple.com

    It was very hard to find a high resolution image for the rear Mac... I found the one that looked closest to the the one on the poster. I did the best i could.

    No trouble at all. :)

    What computer was it? I'm guessing it wasn't a PowerPC?

    Thank you!

    I’d print it, but I could only imagine the amount of black ink I’d use on it LOL
