Welcome to Discogs! If you haven't already done so, read the [url=https://support.discogs.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004051893-Quick-Start-Guide-For-New-Contributors]quick start guide for new contributors[/ url], which takes about 20 minutes and gives you all the basics in simple form. It's worth bookmarking the [url=https://support.discogs.com/hc/en-us/sections/360001058453-Full-Submission-Guidelines]full release submission guidelines[/ url] for reference on specific points. If you get stuck and want help, feel free to post in the [url=https://www.discogs.com/forum/topic/25]Submission Help forum[/ url]. Good luck!

Taking images
The only images that are allowed are photos or scans taken of the physical copy in your possession. It's not allowed to upload images found on the web or elsewhere. If you could take some photos or scans of your copy to replace the small image, that would be great. The best procedure is to take photos of the front and back of the cover, each of the disc labels and each page of the booklet (if there is one). Take them from front-on (not at an angle) in good light – preferably in daylight but without the sun shining on the object. Then rotate them if necessary to make them 'horizontal' and crop them to the edges of the box/booklet and the edges of the disc labels – seeing the whole disc surface is of no use. Your computer or smart-phone will have inbuilt editing software that will allow you to crop the images, and most also allow you to rotate them. Please make sure they are at least 600 pixels wide (the maximum display width) so that text is as legible as possible.
