Spotlight ideas

How about only ONE piture of each entry with all of the options listed under it. For example, if I have a book in print and it is also available as a download, just put a picture of the cover and then list the options under it. Why have multiple images of the same book listed for each option. I have some items that are available as print, download, paperback, hardback, etc, and my spotlight site is clogged up with an image and a description for each version. This is redundant and cluttering. Simple, uncluttered and austere is how I would like my spotlight. If anybody else wants cluttered and redundant, good for you. But give us a choice.

Hi shanrick, thanks for the suggestion. Having only one picture per book with all the format options listed under it is a great idea we've heard from many before, and one we'll certainly consider for the future. Thanks for using Lulu!

But what if they all have different covers?

Yes, I completely agree that there should be one, simple, uncluttered page that lists all our products, as it was before all this redundant new development of the 'Spotlight' - and why have different covers for the one book? Very confusing for readers/purchasers.

I totally agree with you, Shanrick. The old Storefront was so neat and clear and simple: one cover picture with print and download options to click on. Nice and easy. I have thirteen books on my Spotlight. With my previous Storefront, all my books could be seen on one page. Now I have five pages with my covers spread in their different formats all over the place in a total mess. I hate my new Spotlight page, and for potential customers, it must be totally confusing - enough to put them right off buying a book. Not in my interest or Lulu's.
