I'm putting them in the artist pictures folder, but the problem is I'm only seeing half of the picture. What am I doing wrong?
I don't understand what you meant. Can you elaborate on that, if necessary with screenshots?
In panels configuration, I put "artist picture" in the right side bar.
Then I put pictures of artists in the artist pictures folder.
They show up in the right sidebar with only half of the picture, I can't even resize the pic.
Artist pictures are just so hard to use I might give up here. Doesn't even seem like there's a lot of support for it, no "paste to artwork' right click function, can't resize the pic, I don't even know what kind of magic this guy used: http://i.imgur.com/D6KusvZ.png
to make it look like that.
Also if I'm doing something wrong with the steps above, and there's a better way to add your own artist pictures, please do tell.
