The uploading and linking of images is a lengthy, tedious process. But, I think, necessary. I do not recall ever having bought a censored cover (other than in bulk lots) that I had not seen first. We are looking for a way to streamline the process. Here is one solution: Uploading the images in multi-cover .pdf files.

You can initiate the viewing process by clicking on the link below. This will open the .pdf file with the designated scans (in your Adobe Acrobat Reader -- the default selection in my case -- or in some other program, including your browser, as you choose). You will have to switch back and forth between wherever you open the image file and your browser tab with the auction lot listing, but by doing so will be able to maintain your place in each as you go. Please let me know how this works for you.
