Hugo (hugo_nebula) | 731 comments What is the position on updating a book cover with an improved version of the same image? Upgrading might be the better word.

For instance, the book above has a GR cover image which is a photo of the book, taken from Abebooks. Currently, Amazon has the same book illustrated with what seems to be a scan, but cropped to the edges of the book, which seems like a nice upgrade. Is it okay in this instance to replace the previous image?

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments Should be ok. But add a librarian change comment as to why you're changing the cover so that no one accidentally flags your cover change

Sandra | 25933 comments If it is the exact same cover just a better image it is acceptable to change it.

Please explain what you are doing in the change comment box, at the bottom of the edit page.
