How to Add or Change Cover Art

This page describes how to add or change the cover art pictures for albums. This can be done using the AdvancedRelationshipType "Has Amazon ASIN".

On the designated album page select Use this album in a relationship then there should be a link with Relate to URL . Click this and you should be taken the page where you can enter an URL

In the pull-down menu under the header links to affiliates you will find the special link has amazon asin

Be sure to add the urls to the appropriate countries' amazon stores:

  • http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/########## for US
  • http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/########## for German
  • http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/ASIN/########## for Japanese and
  • http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/########## for UK etc.

where ######### is the 10 digit ASIN code.

Also make sure you don't add URLs to products that are only sold by custom sellers (those that don't have an Amazon price).

Finally, be careful to add the right ASIN to the right album version. Don't add an ASIN that links to a version with bonus tracks to a release in MB that doesn't have them.
