I have a Riff Cohen (https://fanart.tv/artist/bf0669ad-1088-47da-a538-7f7e3255bf69/cohen-riff/) album but MB isn't picking up the the artist thumb.
All tracks seems to have both Artist and Album Artist set as "Riff Cohen".

(a few minutes later) So I manually dropped that image in the correct place with the correct name with the rest of the album artist images. One restart later and it's shown properly.

Yes its a sticky but I am not sure its unintentional. Maybe Steven wants to avoid what happened with albumartexchange by giving the sites more recognition and support
I realise this post is a few years old now, but I went to check what AAX was (not having heard of it before) and found an emergency fundraiser request on their site, posted only in recent months. Has this happened in the past, or were you referring to something else?

Oh I see.

Is there any way the community here can set some standards on scanning quality and sizes and upload to a dropbox account or something to use as a database? I've no idea of the technicalities of what kinds of resources can be used. Just throwing it out there.

Is there a simple way to use Tag(2) - Tag Handling - Remove Words as a way to exclude "featured artists" included in the Artist Tag so that MB searches & finds Artist Pictures? I've tested on a couple of example such as remove "(ft Jay-Z)" and if works but I have far too many tracks to list them all manually. All my "featured artist" info is included in the Artist Tag but this results in MB not finding Artist Photos on tracks that have a featured artist. Alternatively, is there a way for the Artist Photo search to use the Album Artist tag as that contains just the Artist Name (except on compilations or soundtracks, but that is a minor inconvenience).

If you open Tag Editor and click on ... button next to artist tag box to open Multiple Artist Splitter, then clicking on Split button will split them into each artist value without touching display artist. But this can only be done one by one. If you want to bulk edit them, then you might want to ask boroda74 for writing a custom ASR preset for the job: http://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=3833.0
