  • Well there is good news and bad news. The good news is that there are a lot of cover images being submitted by members. The bad news is that an awful lot of them are not being approved because of the quality or lack of cropping.

    I have now added a preview to help save me some time when reviewing images. When you submit an image, you will now be given the chance to see the final product before it moves on for approval. Hopefully this will help weed out the majority of the bad images in advance thus saving me time.

    If this does not help, I might then have to resort to removing cover submission permission from those users who routinely submit bad images.

    Thank you for your help in assuring that MCP has the highest quality images possible!

  • So if the image has green in it, this means the image is no good? I get most of my covers from comiccovers.com and it is really hard to tell if they are good or bad. your new green screen feature should work, i just need to know if green, (on the image) is good or bad.

  • This is the same green that I use to screen scans submitted by members. I have yet to find a cover that has green in it. The reason for the green is that if there is a tiny sliver of white along one edge from the scanning process, you would never see it against a white background.

    Basically the 2 biggest problems that are easy to spot are:

    1. Scanning errors (i.e. small amounts of white/black/grey along one or more edges of the scan)
    2. Quality - Several members find a scan on the Internet that is smaller than 400px. They then resize the smaller image to be 400px, thus distorting the image. When the image is uploaded it is not crisp, clean, and clear.

  • Does it still automatically reject for excessive file size and insufficient image size (400px minimum)? I assumed it did, but when i submitted some files I thought were deficient, it allowed them.

    That's a handy piece of information to have right there.

  • It should be rejecting. I allowed some fluff on the file size, but it should be rejected if the image is smaller than 400px. I will check into everything to make sure.
