Wrong cover art

I have some albums with not only the cover but also the inlay etc.

The search patters are like this:


But now on some albums, it displays the inlay instead of the cover (i think because of the $replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)*.*) . I use that pattern so if there is only 1 image in the folder (usually the cover) it will use that one. But in the above situation it doesnt work the way i want.

is there some way to avoid this? Or to like prioritize patterns?

even if the file has no embebbed picture, right click the file>tagging>manage attached pictures - REMOVE all attached....

also remember to rename the pictures according to your tags - sometimes the name has misspelling and it get's shown wrong.

and sometimes the name/album/info tagging is wrong and gets foobar to show the incorret picture.

at my foobar i use only :


so it ALWAYS dusplay the main/front cover as album art (and of course the files are named name of albumFRONT.jpg / albumBACK.jpg)

Put these rows in a batch-file, f.e. "show.bat"
@echo off
cd %1
attrib -h -s *.* /s
dir *.jpg

Copy the batch-file in the folder and start it. Look at the outcoming window.
