Hey,
It would be great that MusicBee will search for the album art (especially from sources like Google) not just by the default 'album' pref. but based on the users' choice also for the artist, genre, etc.

This is useful where the album has names like 'Now that's what I call music' or 'Rock Christmas' when you could want a more personal look to the tracks.

Thanks for the continuous good work.

edit: Though I don't like 'Last.fm' for artwork based on 'albums' I am sure it would be a great source for 'artist' based art.

I'd think an option like that would be nice. Especially an option to do a custom parameter Google search from within the GUI of Musicbee would be pleasant. Though certainly not a priority function for me, still +1

Surely it would be easier just to use google from firefox?

Go to firefox create a new bookmark with this url http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&tbs=isch:1,isz:ex,iszw:500,iszh:500&sout=1&q=%s add to it an alias/keyword like cover for example. From the address bar of firefox write that alias (cover) followed by the artist and album name

Sorry, I don't understand the trick completely. But the point of my 'wish' is that this would make it easier to tag multiple songs together with individual art automatically retrieved instead of having to search each image and then 'paste' .. that would be time consuming right!

Hey Steven,
You don't think this feature request can be worked on?
