    Editing Part Photos

    That's a great guide. Thanks for putting in the effort. Because almost all photos taken under artificial light have some sort of tint to them, I add another intermediate step. Assuming that the picture was taken against a white background you can use the levels tool found in the colours menu to correct the entire image. In my view this gives a final piece colour closer to the actual colour. To do this open colours/levels and select the pick white point option: Then click anywhere in the white background of the picture (or if using a white part then the actual part). This sets the background to white and adjusts the part's colour accordingly. Doing this to your before.jpg image gives this result, I may have gone slightly too far by selecting part of the shadow as the background but personally think the colour of the brick is better: Removing the shadows from this is then a slightly easier process. I also skip your crop step because the upload process on Rebrickable provides the option to crop the image. If you are already aware of the colour levels tool and chose to omit it then please accept my apologies for treading on your toes.

    Parts without images

    Am I remembering correctly to say that when the missing images list was created Nathan said he would consider adding the option to see parts with an image but no photo?

    Importing purchases from Lego Store

    For the benefit of anyone following this, here is a couple of details I have added in a pm which I previously forgot:

    Importing purchases from Lego Store

    To get an API code you need to go to https://rebrickable.com/users/slangivar/settings/#api and click generate API code. This will give you a random set of letters and numbers which you paste into my command. If you can share your google sheet and pm me the link I can take a look for you.

    Darth Vader Mini Fig ID help

    I think you have hit the jackpot with that one. From what I can tell on bricklink it is this set: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=darthvader-1#T=S&O={"iconly":0} I can't find the equivalent on Rebrickable and given it's exclusive nature it's quite possible it has never been added to Rebrickable.

    Importing purchases from Lego Store

    I'm not sure if there is a simpler way to do this. I have a google sheet which I use to convert the details from the order into a rebrickable csv file which I can then import. This requires a certain amount of experience dealing with spreadsheets. The setup is complicated by the fact that google sheets doesn't have native support for JSON. The instructions for this step can be found here: https://medium.com/@paulgambill/how-to-import-json-data-into-google-spreadsheets-in-less-than-5-minutes-a3fede1a014a Once you have that setup the command I use in google sheets is: =importjson("https://rebrickable.com/api/v3/lego/elements/"&substitute(A1,"_","")&"/?key=123YourKeyHERE456","/part/part_num,/color/id,/part/name,/color/name","noHeaders") You need to copy and paste the order details from your email into your sheets and then put the command above into the next column. You will also need to substitute your own API key at the relevant point. I don't know if this has ever been suggested on the suggestions forum but if not it would be worth asking for it.

    Generating parts list with Studio

    If you upload the .io file and select bricklink as the external source then it should import the part list fine. At least that is what I did for my penguin MOC last week.

    Multiple "Build this MOC"

    @cadman, Unless I am missing something the controllers are not listed in the parts lists under any of the three parts. I guess they are not included in his build on LDD and he has forgotten to add them manually.

    Should all books be in the book category?

    Yes, that sounds good. The officially numbered books such as build your own adventure have numbers similar to poly bags and some free gift sets so it makes sense to leave them as you say. But with ones with invented numbers the ISBN would make life simpler. I'll get the ISBN of mine tonight and send in a CR.

    Thanks. Will do. I usually do a CR but wasn't sure about books as I've never done them before.
  11. I have just added my three books with parts to my inventory. I had some trouble finding them because only one was in the books category. One was is in "Educational and Dacta > Technic" (https://rebrickable.com/sets/B110-1/crazy-action-contraptions-klutz-vol-2/) and the other was in "Town > City" (https://rebrickable.com/sets/5005174-1/build-your-own-adventure/). Should I put in change requests to recategorise them as books? On a related note the Crazy Contraptions book is listed under what I assume is an invented set number (B110) while new books appear under ISBN. Am I correct to assume there would be no appetite to change the set numbering for old books as it would create more problems than it would solve?

    Using Estimated Value to Appraise Collection

    If I remember correctly it also uses advertised prices from Bricklink rather than sales data. So if some stores are over pricing items then the value can be skewed.
  13. I am trying to filter our overseas stores as the postage isn't economic for my order. I have changed my settings to only show stores from my country (UK) but when I go into buy parts from my list it only shows Bricklink stores and omits Brickowl stores. I am trying to buy the bricks from this list: https://rebrickable.com/users/slangivar/lists/25568/ If I list regional (EU) stores then the "Warehouse Hanger 51" Brickowl store appears (https://thelostbrick.brickowl.com/?utm_source=rebrickable). However when limited to UK stores this store and all other Brickowl, GB stores in the original list are missing. I wonder if it is because Brickowl lists the stores as GB (Great Britain) rather than the UK (United Kingdom) which Bricklink uses. I don't suspect it can be my environment causing this issue but for what it is worth I am using various chromium bases browsers under Windows 10.

    Known variations from box part count

    LEGO.com and the box both state 423 parts. The manual meanwhile lists 422 parts including the separator. Using the earlier assumption the sticker sheet is the difference between these numbers. Our inventory not includes both the separator and the sticker sheet and has 423 parts.

    Known variations from box part count

    I checked the inventory of the station 60050 earlier. The total part count on LEGO.com is one more than the list in the induction manual. I assume that is the sticker sheet.
