Marvin 3 Change Cover

I was attempting to change the cover of some public domain epubs I have. I had Marvin search and displayed a bunch of covers I could use. I'm not sure what to do next -- I clicked on one of the covers I wanted but nothing really happened. I clicked Done but the books cover had not changed.

Does this work? What is correct technique to change a cover?

Marvin will change the cover but it needs to be on your device.

"Search the internet" just allows you to find other images that you can then save to your device. The internet sometimes blocks saving of images due to copyright restrictions... If you run in to one of those you won't be able to use it. However, if you find an image that is usable, then just save it to your images folder on your device. Then use Marvin to change the cover.

Cheers,

Yeah, but HOW do I save an image to my images folder?

I'm used to PCSs - I'm not finding any menu option to save anything. And I've tried clicking on over a dozen book covers.

IF the website allows you to download it, then it would depend on the operating system/browser you are using. On my iPhone when I get to a usable image there is usually a box with an arrow pointing up from it. tap that and then swipe the options until you get to a box with an arrow pointing into it with the words "save image". That is using Safari on iOS 11.4... YMMV.
