How is box art selected?

I have seen that I can add or edit games in the DB, but wondering how the box art that is displayed is selected. There isn't a way that I can see to specifically edit the picture used, and I see a few (specifically in the TurboGrafx-16 section) that aren't quite right that could be corrected to show the right version.

I found the same with DOS games. There is no way to report wrong images, or replace them.

Such as

the image used is actually the right one for

As far as I can tell, you can replace images by choosing "edit" -> "upload images" and uploading new images for the specified category.

That is not entirely true and screenshots once put 5 images and does not allow you to replace them for that is a problem that should solve

covers are replaced as new ones are updated, however as Kirito mentioned other images have a limit of 5 uploads, after which only mods can remove/replace them.

Actually having a problem with this at the moment, go to edit, upload images, front cover, upload the new front cover but it doesn't replace the old one for me...

Try Ctrl+F5 after replacing cover.
