Hi

Is it possible to get Foobar to recognise album cover art images other than those named "cover.jpg" or "folder.jpg" e.g. those named after album title etc. ?


thanks

Well, if you're referring to the album art component (foo_uie_albumart) you can set any search parameter such as genre, composer, artist, album artist and even custom tags. It's possible to do interesting things using slideshow.

Thanks all (& apologies for truncated topic title !).

That worked great (for %directory%.jpg, when directory name = netlabel catalogue number = image name)

If I rename album folders (via Move file operation), enclosing album catalogue number in square brackets, how can I ask FB2K to recognise the .jpg covers ?

e.g.

Image still = netlabel010.jpg, but album now in folder:

\[netlabel010] artist - album

easiest, and possible most usefull, way: add a tag where you store the catalogue number
