Hi,

I have a quick question about the Album Artwork feature using the Album Covers view.
My goal is to add custom artwork for the album cover while keeping the 1st track with its own artwork. I have tons of albums where the lead single is track #1, so I'd like to still show that artwork as the primary for the single without impacting the overall album cover.


Example:

* Track 1 has embedded artwork A
* The actual Album cover has embedded artwork B

Can someone let me know if this is achievable in version 3.3.7261? So far, I've tried going to Customize Panel > Show Setting > "Enable All Artwork to be selected and displayed". Unfortunately, this does not permanently change the album cover. Also, Enable Image Rotation hasn't helped me.

Thanks again,

..adding screenshot for clarity  ;)

Hopefully, the Dev team provides a solution sometime soon 👍
Just for the record, there is no "dev team." MusicBee is developed and maintained by one person, who does this as a hobby in his spare time and asks for nothing in return.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.

Good to know!

My apologies Phred; I didn't know Steve built and maintains this by himself. ;)

Sorry for the stupid question, But how do you add album cover to the track list? I've highlighted what I mean.

Copy the image first, then right-click on the track and select Paste Artwork. Choose the embed option to write the artwork to the mp3 file.

Those image thumbnails show up by doing this: Customize Panel > Show Setting > "Enable All Artwork to be selected and displayed". You can edit a single track and click on Artwork to add multiple covers if you want.

Hi thanks for the quick reply. Where is the 'customize panel' option? It's probably obvious, but I can't find it.
