Easiest way to download music artwork?

Post by LesCM19 » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:39 pm

Method 1: shift & Enter, click Artwork tab, click Lookup Artwork icon seems to find the right album cover almost immediately.
Method 2: ctrl & L takes ages and often can't find the album at all, let alone artwork.

Is there a shortcut or script to bypass the steps in method 1 and just go direct to the Lookup Artwork function for the selected album?

You have auto-lookup available that will automatically lookup for the playing file if it doesn't have Artwork associated (no user interaction required).

Right click on Art & Details window and select Edit Artwork Properties is quicker. You can choose to set the window to Now Playing or Selected. View > Properties will keep the window open while allowing you to select different files in the Filelisting.

Auto Lookup isn't working for me :( It is switched on in the options.

It only does it for the playing file if it has no Artwork. It does depend on tags being known (Album and Album Artist).

Album & Album Artist fields have been entered; doesn't download when I play.
Tried the Discogs script, need watch out for tracks being mis-named so I'm just doing it manually :D
