Ha!

I looked for a cover image in the amazon pictures, and this time it worked.
No idea why it was the only solution, but good to know!

I usually change them without problem, but I'm trying with that one:
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14605223 , it says "the image was updated", but it is not.
I tried to upload different pictures and it's always the same, so the problem is not the image.
I have the same problem with another book, does anyone know if it is a bug happening now?

Cute puppies in the image I can see! I gather that was a duplicate-registration that you want to re-use at some point; if you have new book-information to enter, try doing that before you update the cover image and see if that helps.

I have noticed that attempts to change an existing photo sometimes seem to fail, only to kick in hours (and hours and hours) later; not sure if that's the same situation here or not.

Really? Well that's not the picture I intended to upload, but must be one of the ones I tried afterwards to see if the picture was the problem!
And I still see the same wrong cover, not the puppies one, how is it possible I don't see the same as you?

Well, I'm trying now to upload the cover of a book that I have not registered yet, and will check later if it appears!

I do see a face half in shadow matching to the kingbook registered.

That problem's been around for a few months. See the following forum threads:

It seems that the person who is uploading new images can't see the changes, but others can.

For example, I also changed some images and could see no change immediately. It took several weeks before I could see the changed images take effect. Others have reported seeing changes much earlier.

I recommend waiting a couple of days (possibly a couple of weeks) and seeing if you can see the changes then.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
