Andy | 136 comments I was doing a little work on series and I discovered an odd thing. In The War of Powers all the large cover images are missing. Someplace else, I saw where somebody had copie... no, we don't have the ability to copy one image... whatever.

Is there some way we can easily tell if the images are missing? They look fine on my shelves and in the list, but there's nothing in the book view, and since there's no image you can't get to the cover view to see it's not there. :-s

Is the large image used for both the book view and the cover view? Where ARE the particular images used?

I'm guessing that as a stopgap until somebody scans the books, we need to save the medium image and then upload it again? (sigh)

If I understand the process, after saving the medium image (which is currently the largest) and uploading it, it will be inserted as both the medium and large image since it's below the maximum size?

Thanks. When I find my copies, I'll scan them, but for now...

Correct.

Andy | 136 comments ok. Bandaids applied. I feel so much better now. :-s

From the original post, though... Is there some way we can easily tell if the images are missing?

From somewhere other than the page linked on the edit book page, you mean?
