I noticed on the image upload pages "Do NOT upload cover scans of comic books. Cover art should only be used in the Volume/Issue pages" is there now. Does this mean any picture scanned from a cover? Or just don't upload the whole cover as in

?

I think it's so stuff like logos, bar codes and stuff like that are out, so cropping the image should be fine. That's just me though.

Yup. Cropping is fine. I've done it in the past. The covers are for the volume pages. AND when submitting volume info, only ACTUAL covers should be used. No clean preview images from MARVEL.com or other sites.

Yeah just crop out the bar code and titles and stuff, then it will be all good.

His it ok when you grab a cover scan on the web, but there's a tag of the website you grabbed it on, like the dark horse logo on the image corner, or the adress of the site?

I don't use those covers cause I don't know what is the policy about this.
