You can submit covers by using the link at the bottom of the page and inserting the ISBN or simply click the blue icon "no image" on the book's details page. Please make sure your image is clean & clear, as it will appear for all books with that ISBN not just yours. The maximum height for an image is 500px, and it must be in .jpg format.

Images must

  1. Have the extra space around the image (usually white or black on the sides) cropped off. Only the exact image of the cover can be showing.
  2. Be straight
  3. Be clear
  4. Be large enough to read the title
  5. Be free from any emblems from other sites, such as eBay or Amazon.

Also, if you cannot scan a clear, clean copy of your own book, most titles have images already available on the Internet, you just have to Google (or other search engine) for them. They might need cropped or such, but they are usually free of blemishes & wrinkles that a scanned image may have.
