It is a lottery with this covers. many of my uoploads are rejectetd because the front cover and back cover do not match altough the image editor says it has the correct aspect ratio.


I am sorry to hear that you find it to be frustrating, but it is actually not that difficult to stick to the standards, if you are scanning the covers yourself - if you are obtaining them from various different sources, fronts and backs as separate items, that would be a problem.

First of all - the aspect ratios does not mean that front and back covers are correct in relation to each other.

And, the fact that one or more covers slips though the checks does not mean that you can just choose to bypass the contribution rules as it suits you.

Initially - what is the source of the covers you are contributing? Are you scanning the covers yourself?

I have taken an example of what the moderators see when they handle one of your contributions - as you can see here, the system shows that there is a big difference between the front and back cover.

The aspect ratios has no relation to this in any way - a 100x140 pixel image has the exact same aspect ratio as a 100000x140000 pixel image, which is 1000 times bigger, so please do not use that as a guideline.

See this video please on how to scan and crop so that covers have the correct size: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj-nP5fDUgQ&t=2s

Hello,

I'm trying to contribute to update some covers for better quality ones. Some contributions are working well but some give me a message "The cover you are trying to contribute seems not different from the one on the title.".
I can tell that they are really different in quality.
I successfully contributed to "Beauty and the beast" (8717418506759) and "Hocus Pocus" (8717418576639) the new covers are displayed on the online collection.
But for the titles "Aladdin" (2019) (8717418550776) and "Aladdin" (1992) (8717418557690) I always have the earlier error message...


Thank you,

I have question for uploading Laserdisc covers. I use to make the photos with my phone with trial and error and then crop them, as laserdisc covers are too big to scan. I get warning I can get banned for uploading scans if I will upload the covers in the app. Can somebody explain me the policy for laserdisc covers, as my experience is that well made photos are the best way to get covers.

LaserDisc covers are accepted as camera photos if they are created so that then are without glares (no flash), and as evenly from the top as possible.

Your account will not be banned for this, and if it happens you get warnings for this, please write support@mymovies.dk.

Notice! This is ONLY an exception for LaserDisc covers and items in boxes that cannot be scanned.
