Author Topic: Can anyone walk me through the basics of dealing with "album art" in MC?  (Read 1717 times)

To be clear - I am interested in possibly exploring storing all the relevant scanned jpg files (booklets, tray images, front, back etc) for any given album out in the actual folder has the FLAC files in it.

Up until now - I have simply archived all scanned art for every album as "artwork.rar".  

These files sit in an archive area on the network and are nowhere near the MC library at this time. For my play copies of all files - I embedded the main album image in each file and that's about it for art.

I am thinking it may be cool to have MC show different parts of the album package while the music plays. I just have no idea how to even start.

Appreciate any simple tips to get me started.

Cheers!

I'm interested in this too.  I've done a little bit of research, but haven't gotten very far.  I've seen PDF booklets mentioned, but the process didn't seem very clear to me.  Maybe I haven't spent enough time researching and reading.

I'll be watching this closely.

Are you guys across this aspect of dealing with pdf files, at least?
