I have two books on my shelf without images, and I can't find these images anywhere on the web. I don't have software to manipulate images, so taking my own photo is out. Any help or suggestions? Thanks!

what books are they?  is there another version of the book that you can "steal" the image and post it to your ISBN?

sometimes there just aren't going to be images available.  I have textbooks on my shelf and some older books and am too lazy to take pictures and size them down for here.

Do you have access to a scanner? Maybe at the library or a church or friend? Scan it, crop it and upload it from there, perhaps?

I count 3 instead of 2 - Angel Voices A Book of Postcards, Life in Christ: A Catholic Catechism for Adults, and The Singing: A Fable About What Makes Us Human.

Let me check a few places. I might be able to find an image that can be used.

ETA: I found some and uploaded them. They still have to approved, but that doesn't take too long.

Tim, why is it you aren't on the image team yet? Just idle curiousity this AM. I"m feeling well enough to have conversations on the boards, so I'm just kinda running around sticking my nose in things. I'm sure the image team would love to have you, and I know I'd love to have you on the data team. Send me a PM if you get curious :)

I'm not much of a joiner. The moment I join, it becomes a job.

hahaha, I promise, Tim, neither team expects any obligations. The advantage to joining, is knowing when the queue is cleared, when there is a problem site wide, and being able to see/have discussions directly with others that are playing the same tune you are with images and/or data.

Images have been approved. You're good to go.
