Is there a way to have its size and format not altered by the site?
Maybe not most covers, but some become really ugly after resampling.

 

Most of your covers seem to be ok now.

Sometimes the system takes a bit of time to resize the covers in a good way, but mostly they're ok after about 5 minutes.

Yeah but is there a way to avoid an extra step of JPEG lossy compression by uploading a cover in the exact size and format that the site can use? Or is it just programmed to always resample?

but red letters never look good in JPEG format: bookcrossing.com/journal/15852501

 

That... looks fine to me? (I'm using a Chromebook, fwiw; don't know if images may look different on other devices/browsers.)

You can enter the covers in jpg or png format, both the system will accept.
If you click the cover of that book, you'll see the picture becomes more clear. Unfortunately our system always resizes the covers so they would look all more or less the same.
