This may happen with some data sources if the option : "Updating from source should overwrite user data" is checked for 
some sources.

The sources I noticed this happens are "Google Book Search" and "Open Library".

This is annoying but it doesn't seem to me as a Tellico bug.

What I've done is to uncheck this option for these sources and reorganize the order from which data are updated.

Hope this help

About photos of book covers, I had this indeed, but it not seemed to me that this was a Tellico problem.

Either way, I'd like to thanks Robby for this very useful tool.
