Hello,
           I recently found MusicBee when I bought my FiiOs. I was using MusicBee on Windows 7 and everything worked correctly. I updated to Windows 10 :/ and I put music bee on. Instead of the Artist picture automatically showing up it shows nothing. I tried to paste a photo and nothing. However, when I add cover on a song file it paste the cover on the artist photo. I'm not sure how to fix or what is causing the problem.

It would also be useful if you explain where the artist picture should show. A screenshot would be helpful

Hello Psychoadept and thanks for the welcome  ;) .

To answer you I use version 3.3.7491.

Hello Steven, I took the screenshot. In the picture you will see I have a custom album cover and it added it to the artist photo.

If it doesn't have an artist photo I think it defaults to the first album cover, so no big surprise there. It is odd that you can't paste an artist photo, though. My first suggestion would be to update to the patch in my signature, but I also wonder if there's a write-access problem.

By default MB doesnt show the artist pictures - it shows the first album cover, so did you enable "show artist pictures" in the thumb-browser header bar?

Ha, Steven is probably right. I didn't even remember that that was a setting.

Thanks it worked.

I can't believe the fix was so simple
