Any rules? I have tried to post a picture of a book, and it is now awaiting approval. Does someone at PBS Edit to fit the picture??

There are volunteers who check and double check images, crop and etc. before they are approved.  It generally takes a couple of days before you'll see your book cover.

Thank You. (I will now add the rest)

I've recently added a bunch of book images.  I was told by the image team if it's still showing a blue box (instead a of a picture of the book), but it says "larger" underneath it, then the image has been approved but just isn't showing yet.  I read somewhere on the site that it should show up within 3 days, but mine still aren't showing up after a week.  I know they've recently made some changes, so either they are backlogged or it just takes longer than it used to.  I kept the images on my computer, so I can keep checking to see if they show up or not.

The image queue is very full right now, so it's going to take longer.  And please hang on to your images until you see that they are showing.  If they aren't showing in a couple of weeks, try putting them through again.

I've put some through at least three times (at the suggestion of PBS) in the past several weeks, and they're still showing blue.  I'm sure that eventually they'll get posted, but sure do hate to see the blue thing sitting there when I know there's a cover lurking out there somewhere waiting to be seen.  LOL.
