Nope. The book comes up and then nothing happens at all and there's no way to plug it in anywhere.

I'll figure out what's happening eventually. :dizzy

I just plugged in the ASIN under find and the books came up. Then I added another (which is still under review). It's not showing your book?

It took me forever to get an image the right size, and I hope it's got enough pixels. Then I wrote some text.

Now the A+ content manager says I should find ASINs and apply them. I don't see a way to do that without using the comparison chart module. Here's what it says:
Add ASINs

"Search for ASINs to apply to this content. Note search results will be returned within the context of product families."

I don't know what that second sentence means. And I can't see how to apply even one ASIN, let alone multiples.

If you want to send me the files, I can see what I can do.

I'm not sure it's worthwhile bothering with.

The ongoing poster of covers might be better, and just put it on all my books. And update it as I do a new one.

Thinking about what else I might add with it.

Do you have the images as layered PSDs/TIFFs?

My thought is to make a space background whatever size the image needs to be.  Then, take the different series titles and ships/rings (reduced proportionally to fit) and place them over the space background.  That way, everything is proportional and everything shares a common background so it all ties in together.

No, I don't. They're all jpg's.

I have some of the components as psd, but the 2 Hunter logos were done by someone else, and I only have the jpg's.

Probably not worth the effort to try and rebuild something custom.

You could "cheat" and experiment by adding borders to the sides that match the cover color. Just black square borders or something. I used gray borders for my home YouTube page (because I don't create my own creative and otherwise it would look stretched). I think your top image looks great but the bottom might look better with added borders.

It's a shame that Amazon doesn't allow different sizes. Perhaps that will be in future upgrades.

It's quite hard to tell which image box is the right shape.
Feel free to laugh at mine - it has erred on the understated side I think! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DFEFDU

Yours is so modest I scrolled right past it. Can you make it larger? At least so the titles are legible?

Yes - that's what I thought too. I found it hard to see what the thing would look like on the page until it went live - I realised almost at once that I'd have to go back and have another go. Thanks for having a look!

All of the are. The top right is dragged out a bit, but the ship remains viable. The 2 squares show the rings are just slightly not round.
