Add cover images to new books


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I want to add some Mad books that are not in the database.  I added one but am not able to add an image for it via the drag and drop method used for comics.  I have CB Pro.  How can I do so? Thanks.

1) make sure the type is a *.JPG.

2) whatever the issue number is displayed as, type exactly the same characters, except replace an / with a -.

 

Examples.

1        1.jpg

1/A     1-A.jpg

HC 1   HC 1.jpg

1/A-2  1-A.2.jpg

0.5     0.5.jpg

PS If it looks correct try leaving the title and then returning. Sometimes the display needs to refresh to display the image.

Yes that works fine for comics.  The book was listed as TPB (10th), I guess because my copy is the 10th printing.  There is no number associated with the book.  I named the image TPB.jpg and also tried TPB (10th).jpg but as soon as I dragged the image into the comicbase page of the book, the round curser has a line through it, rather than the + through it when adding to a comic.  Something is different for books.  Any other suggestions?

Ah, I see the problem. You are using Album view (which I never do).

I guess I am going to have to modify my 'how to name a picture file' instructions.

The actual Item Number is TPB-10, if you were in Grid View.

Having the Album View display TPB (10th) confuses and complicates the instructions.

The Picture file needs to be  TPB-10.jpg to get displayed.
