  • Well not really.

    Would there be any interest in storing custom cover images? I.e. yes we have a lot of images, but would people like the ability to store their own image for them to see. Say you scan or take a photo of a comic...it would show instead of the default one?

    This would have to be a premium add on (even above and beyond Lifetime Memberships)...but I am curious how many would like this ability? I was thinking it would be cool to upload a pic of a CGC'd book, or a scan of a signed comic, etc. Actually I am so that I would probably do this for just about every comic I had.

    If you are interested in this how would you like it to work? Could you add multiple images to a comic? Maybe you have 2 versions of a comic, one signed one not. What do you think the cost should be for this? I do have a cost that I would incur so I would have to cover it, but it would basically be a fee per GB per year or possibly a flat fee for unlimited storage.

    Thoughts?

  • To be honest I for one would not be interested in this feature. Most of my books are not really that different from the pictures already in the database. I can see how this could be relevant for collectors with a lot of silver and golden age books where grade is of a bigger importance.

    Just my 2c.
    Not collecting any more but I still enjoy comics now and then...

    Are you thinking $10 or $15 per GB or unlimited? I did some price comparison and flickr is $25 for unlimited (not saying I have to match them). I was also thinking of giving a discount for Lifetime Members.

    I guess even though I can do it I don't want to devote time/resources to it if there is not a lot of interest...I might make it a back burner project.

  • At this point this feature wouldn't intrest me. But I can see where it would be handy if you want to sell your books, you could have photo's of your books right here for the buyer to check out condition and what not.

  • yeah, i don't see me using this feature.
    i'm happy with the way it is.

  • I probably would not use it either. Once my inventory is complete (2020?) I'll probably store scans and images for later reference on DVDs at home.
