Instead of doing my original approach of going to my bog-standard .mkv rip from who knows where, I decided to go straight for my Blu-Rays and use my new HDCP-removing streaming setup to get these shots from my PS3 instead for higher quality. Links below:

184: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Di1Iq ... WMiOV3UmUP
185a: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Zh2hL ... uebccuVemQ
185b: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Tv_mr ... P4EqsMYiIs
Is there a way to view them in their original resolution? All I can do is zoom in and out, and I don't think any of the points it stops at are the original resolution. I'm not too used to Google Drive, tho. If there isn't a way, I can download them and upload them to Imgur for you. Thanks again by the way!

Imgur compresses images but this is more or less to just get a rough idea so that shouldn't matter too much. For a true comparison, all screenshots would need to be lossless.

The raw screenshots of FUNimation's reel are about 8MB each so, yeah, not for everyone.

I don’t know if a better option sadly.

Downloadable screenshot comparisons but very few would bother with it but then again this is aimed at hardcore fans.

I received a French DBZ DVD that I purchased with episodes 1 to 4 so I'll make some screenshots of those to see how it compares.

Btw, it would be nice to also have screenshots of Selecta Vision's DBZ Remastered. I read they look really good and close to the Dragon Box Z so that's why Selecta Visión's just keeps on re-releasing without making more remasters. It's profitable for them and fans are happy.

From the French DBZ DVD "Épisodes 1 à 4" by AB Groupe. This is a fairly early DVD release and you'll notice why.

"Citizens"
"Farmer"
"Gohan"
"Raditz"

FUNimation's trashy 30th Blu-ray release compared to this looks amazing.

Too bad the zoom is even worse.

Okay, got 'em! Should mention, the clip of stressed Gohan actually comes from DBZ 184, not 185.
Thanks! Tho, the distressed Gohan shot WAS from 185. The previous episode recap. That’s where FUNi grabbed the screenshot from, so I did the same.
Oh, hm. Should I re-take the screenshot, then?

Oh, no, I'm sure it's fine. ^.^
Did you see my other messgage to you? Is there a way to "fullscreen" the images on Google Drive? I'm not knowledgeable of how Google Drive works.

Look for the download button in the top-right corner with the arrow pointing down into a box. This will download the full 1080 version for you.

Okay, I'm gonna go grab those shots from Z's 104 footage in Kai, which appears to be Kai 52.

Okay, here we go! Funnily enough, none of the three shots are 100% replicated in Kai; the Tien and Base Goku shots were redrawn for some reason, and the Frieza/Goku one is present, but not one without the dust cloud!

I just checkt, and I don't think they compress images anymore. Or at least mine don't seem to be.

Are those suppose'd to be in 720p? Are those the "Season" BDs?

Thanks. I downloaded them and upload them to Imgur for the people who don't wish to fill their computer with all these comparison shots. XD

It'll make these screenshots a bit easier to compare.

Looks like they revised their compression rules better than it was before. Having an account is useful but whenever j uploaded images/screenshots strangers would rate it as if I wanted it.

Since I last did this, compression is still there, but it primarily affects jpeg uploads due to their inherent compression, even if you use quality 12 when saving them in Photoshop. png files seem to avoid this.
