My List ease of use recommendations

When adding a new film to my list it places it at the very end, and one must click "Next" numerous times to reach the newly-added item. If there were an option of page number to click on it would surely help.
Also, when on a film's page it has the option to add that film to our "watchlist", but not to our personal "My List"- could that option be added, please?
And finally, could the Lists be exported into an excel format that includes the DVD cover image? It would be a great way to keep track of one's DVD/BluRay collection.
Thank you

I agree that having individual page numbers would be nice, but you can access that now by editing the url.
After clicking Next the first time, notice that "page=" is included in the url:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls033194799/?sort=list_order,asc&mode=detail&page=2
Just change that number to where you want to be, and you're done. 
Also, If you want to get to the end of the list, you can reverse the List Order, and the last will appear first. That's also true in Edit mode.

Adding a title to a List is absolutely available now on the desktop version of imdb.com, unless you're using Reference View. Then "Change View" to see this:
Just hold your mouse over the "+" for Watchlist, and a dropdown of lists becomes available.

Unfortunately, this does not yet exist for Names you want to add to a Name list.

By your phrasing, it sounds like you are aware that we can export our lists, but that you want the poster included. Hopefully that would be a second option, as I would not want that for my exports. I used to export  my inventory a lot more, but am happier using IMDb when I need to find something.  I'm using a script (on Chrome) that alters the imdb pages to color code titles/names on my lists, which makes things really easy to identify.
