How can I get all my books to have cover images?  I have seen there is a group of members that are a part of this 'crusade' but how can I help?  Or do they eventually all get images?

Thanks

Patti

You look for the images online or scan the books if you can't find them. As for getting help, you can ask in this forum. I'll take a look after I send this.

Ok, you have 22 books that are missing images. I've located images to use. I still need to crop the images down and submit them. That'll take a few minutes. Then, the image team has to approve them. That will probably take a day or two since they have a lot of images to do.

And remember these guidelines, from the Book Imaging Group Lead Coordinator:

Uploading Book Covers in a Nutshell:

  1. Use the Upload Book Covers link NOT the Edit Book Data link
  2. Crop the image so nothing but the cover shows
  3. No Amazon arrows, Ebay or other trademarks on the pictures
  4. Optimal size is around 500 x 300 pixels

And anyone can feel free to contact me for further information, I'm often online and love PMs and I'm a part of the book imaging/approval team.
