Capture Cover edit buttons missing

Postby mommahawk » Thu May 06, 2021 5:34 pm

Hi,

I've just migrated my database over to a new computer and got everything set up to start adding more books. I've had to reset preferences, which is fine, but I can't figure out how to get the "capture cover" feature to work as normal. There is the camera button and the "set" button, but there are no sliders or any way to edit the photo after it has been taken. I like to edit the background out of my cover photos. I'm running Bookpedia 6.1.0 on an iMac running Catalina 10.15.7. Any help would be appreciated!

Thats correct you can not edit from within the Capture Cover feature.

The best way to do this is to scan via a printer scanner to desktop and use either the Apple supplied photo editing app's (Photos or Preview) or a third party app. I use Preview even though I have Pixelmator. Preview is quite often over-looked as a Photo editing app.

Wait, what? Since when did this change happen? I've always been able to slide the crop lines to edit within Capture Cover!
