Font issues: 〜～
VGMdb Cover Art
(None) - if you leave it as this, only the content of the second textbox will be saved as the caption.
Front - this is for scans which only have the front and back. If there are individual booklet pages, use Booklet Front for consistency.
Booklet Front - see above. If the scan is a 2-page, put "& Back" in the second textbox to produce "Booklet Front & Back".
Booklet Back - last page of the booklet (the one facing the disc).
Booklet p. - for individual booklet scans. Remember to denote the booklet number(s) in the textbox. ("02-03", "05-06", etc)
Booklet - use with the second textbox for special parts or mention of an incomplete booklet (ex: "Booklet (upper left part)" or "Booklet (credits)"
Jacket - for DVD casing. Put the necessary details in the second textbox ("Front", "Back", etc)
Disc - if there are numbers, put them in. ("1", "3 & 4" for scans of multiple discs, etc)

Tray - the inner portion of the traycard (the one right underneath the disc). (Some releases have a traycard as a front cover (like the back cover/traycard), we generally use the following captions for the set: Front/Front Tray/Back/Back Tray)
Back - back of the case / outer portion of the traycard
Obi - spinecard. Some scans have both sides of the obi, so put "Front" or "Back" in the textbox as appropriate

Card - cards, postcards, etc. Again, details in the second textbox
Sticker - either those bonus stickers they stuff into the case (if it's attached to the obi, put it in the obi description instead), or those blurbs / promotions that are stuck to the shrinkwrap.

Digipack - for digipacks. Put the necessary details in the second textbox ("Exterior Left", "Exterior Right", etc)
