Newbie here. This has probably been asked and answered several times, but here it is anyway: how do I submit my own image (from my gallery) to propose it as the representative image for a game version that currently has no image?

I've looked at the FAQs and wikis, but they all refer to choosing images from the huge image database, not a user's gallery. (Unless my images are in the big main gallery and I haven't found them.cry)

Many thanks!

I don't think an image from your gallery can be a representative image. Just submit it as a game image, and once it is approved you can propose it as the representative image.

You need to resubmit the image as an image for the game. If it's approved, then you can go into the gallery, click on the vertical "..." and propose it as the representative image.

You can't do that. The image must be submitted to the game's gallery. Even then, you must propose the image as the representative image in GeekMod. That may be declined. The GeekModders get to decide which image from the gallery is representative, not a user.

EDIT: Wow! Triple ninja

Images from user galleries cannot become representative pictures.

The picture must be in the game's gallery. Then go to the picture and find the link to suggest it as a representative picture.

(From the picture itself -> Browse -> More -> Propose Representative Image)

Note that representative pictures should be useful in the small square size, so they should not have a lot of details nor large margins.

Welcome to BGG!

To add to what everyone said, you can make an image (from the game's gallery) the representative image for a version, without making it the representative image of the game.

First step, upload it to that game's gallery so that it can go through geekmod.

If the version does not yet exist, submit the version and include the image's number in the representative image.

If the version already exists, look for the Add Version Link link to the left of the image, just above the avatar. This proposal will go through geekmod.

The first image linked to a version should become the rep image for the version.

If you need to propose a different image as the rep image for a version, go to the version's page, and click Browse X Images. Click More under the image, and Propose representative image. This proposal will also go through geekmod.
