I recently finished a book, Actor by Parnell Hall, (like minutes ago) and wanted to submit the cover to PBS.  I scanned it and then came to the site here and I see nothing on the HOW or the WHO to send it to.  It is not like I want to be on that particular "team" (I did do a search in the forums and help docs), it is just that I have the book with its cover (the hardbound one) and thought I'd be nice and submit it.  Apparently, it isn't all that easy to do and I am not sure why.  I see a lot of posts about people with questions but no real answers for me! Anyone?  Can you help?

Thanks in advance.

Click on the member tools link at the bottom of the page.  Then click on Upload Book Covers.  Make sure your cover meets the criteria on the page.

Go down to the bottom of the page and click member tools. Then from there click upload book covers. Type in the ISBN of the book and upload the file. Once it is revieved by the book image team it will show. Hope that helps.

You can also upload a cover from the book details. When you have clicked into the book information, you will see a More Options button, select Edit Book Data from that list. In there you just need to put in the path to where you saved the picture and submit the data edit.

Got it done! I wonder why it is that I have such a hard time finding information like this on the site?  I have no problem with book searches but info such as this eludes me.  Thank you all so much.

PBS has changed a few things around recently - like the links at the bottom of the page.  People really should just pass their cursor over everything on a page, stop at each thing and look to the bottom of their browser screen to see if it's a link and where it's to.  There are so many links on any given page that it can be hard to take it all in.  I've never seen a site with as many links on each page as PBS has.  I love it.

From the book details page you can double click right on the blue "not-cover" and it will take you right to the spot to upload ... don't even have to type in the ISBN.
