I am downloading them manually from TMDB (themoviedb.org) to get only those I like, save them locally and import them afterwards.

Thanks for the tip. I thought some of plugins could've been used to import screenshots.

Well, there are some scripts for screenshots, but I do not use them. One is a russian version for kinopoisk (ÊèíîÏîèñê.Ru) the other one is filmtv. Both do not work for me, so I decided to do it manually. As I use MediaPortal on my HTPC with MovingPictures I proceed like described in this article http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/mein-weg-zur-perfekten-moving-pictures-datenbank.103039/ (German only).
For my home made videos I use the built in functionality to take screenshots from the movie.

Regards,
Oliver

Neither "Paste from clipboard" option works, although offered. That would make things easier, too. A lot...

I do not know, wich version you are using, but with 1.0.2.5 copy from clipboard functions very well. Just tested it. You have to be in edit mode though.

I use both, 1.x and 0.9x versions. Right click on an image in Firefox -> Copy Image -> PastefromClipboard in PVD. Nope.

It doesn't work for me.

EDIT: It works for the screen shots and posters, but not for covers!

Yep, that's what I just found out as well. Works for posters and screenshots but not for covers. This seems to be a bug.

Despite the fact that script for importing screenshots (from kinopoisk.ru) was updated 3 days ago (28 May 2013), it still doesn't work (I suspect there's problem with URL query).
