I voted a 'yes' with a 'but' attachted to it... To get a good scan, is quite some work. On most coversites, the scans are of absolutely horrid quality whereas there are certain covergroups in the scene which put out wonderful scans of retail boxes.
Maybe I can explain a bit more.
As part of the approval process, I look at each cover, at full pixel size, on a 17" lcd monitor, which has been correctly calibrated to display accurate black levels and white levels, as well as correct colours.
It is set to 1280x1024, which means, for a 3240x2175 cover, I will be looking at around one fifth of the cover at any one time.
Believe me, at that level of magnification - I WILL spot poor covers!! I often PM creators with things even they did not know about their covers/labels.
So rest assured - this is NOT a vote about any reduction in quality. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif
