There is a limitation to the size of album artwork in Album Covers view that you can set.
Especially for classical releases, the current limit often prevents displaying the titles of releases and/or artists in full.

This is the current maximum size:



actual size:



Allowing an increase of the size (by at least some 150%?) would be very welcome, and would allow most titles and artists to be displayed in full without being cut-off.

And besides the practical benefits, it would also allow to enjoy and do more justice to hi-res artwork and hi-res displays that are available these days.

The fact that you have artwork for your classical albums interests me. Most of mine are just generic Google images/paintings of Beethoven and Vivaldi.
Not that I'm against larger album covers, but it means you see less results per page, and I only use it as a quick reference to pick the album I want and then switch to Now Playing to see a large album cover.

Larger will be optional, are you aware that you can set the size using a slider?

for the next v3.4 update, the max size has been bumped by approx 150%

this change is not fully backward compatible with v3.3 so I suggest you install v3.4 in its own portable folder
