How can I add and change cover images?
If you would like to add or update the book cover for a single record, you can easily change this from your account. Simply head to My Books via the Manage Titles-Section in Titles. Once in My Books, navigate to the title you would like to update, then click the Edit-Link to the right of the title. From this page, you can upload a new book cover. This can be done from the section underneath the book image, in the left column of the page. If there is no cover uploaded yet, click the Choose File-Button underneath the Upload Book Image section. Search for the file you want, click Open (or double click), and then click the Upload-Button. Your image should appear within a few seconds (depending on how fast your internet connection is). That's it!
If you would like to update your cover image, you will need to remove the image that is already there. Just click Delete and then follow the instructions above to upload a new image.
- Minimum resolution: 280 x 210 px Images accepted in gif, png, jpg, jpeg or bmp format.
- Ideal aspect ratio: 4:3.
Please note, the system doesn't change aspect ratio when uploading images, so any that don't match the 4:3 recommended are fine but might not appear at full size. See full image specifications in the article here.
How can I upload images for more than one title at a time?
You can upload up to a thousand images at a time to your titles on the system. To do this, you will need to have your titles assigned to your account already (to check this, search or browse for the titles you want in My Books).
Images must be labelled by their ISBN-13, ISBN-10 or ISSN numbers, i.e. a 13, 10 or 8 digit number with no title names/characters. File type must be .jpg or .png. See full image specifications article here.
Example filenames: 9780000000001.jpg, 001222X7.png
Once you have made sure the filenames are correct and your titles are assigned to your account, log in and go to the Bulk Upload Images page, accessible from the Manage Titles-Page. From here, you can either drag the image files into the upload window (where it says Drag files here) or click Add Files to browse for them. Click Start Upload to begin the upload. Once the loading bar indicates all files have uploaded (i.e. 342/342) the process is complete.

Note: If you have changed or updated your cover image recently and the old one is still displaying, this is likely due to the cookies and cache of your browser. Please empty your browser's cookies and cache and you will find that the cover image is displaying correctly.
