Dunno if I've missed something obvious here...

I using 3.0, normally in theater mode in the "artists pictures" option.

I've been pleasantly surprised by some of the obscure artists it HAS found, but some of my collection is too obscure/local for it to find anything and I really don't like the placeholder image of the single flower in the vase....

Is there any way to manually add images of artists it can't find? If not is there an easy way to change the placeholder image?

Option 1: Right click on the  artist image -> "Paste artist image".
Option 2: Put an image with a name matching artist name ("Deep Purple.jpeg") in folder specified in Preferences -> Tags (1) -> artist picture location.

That changes the artist image in the main player, but it doesn't change what I see in the theater mode, "Artist Pictures"

In case of a theater mode i believe you'll have to edit XML file with settings for the view in use.
It's in "MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.<Embedded or List for fullscreen>\<View name>.xml".
For "Gallery" element change tags="artist" to tags="artist:local". It should start using pictures from the folder specified in Preferences -> Tags (1) -> artist picture location.
