Artwork

Following any database change (commit), Muso will search for artwork for any new full albums automatically. The search order is:

  1. Album folder's image file search - according to the file spec under Options / Artwork (if no filespec is defined, it will skip this step).
  2. Embedded artwork search - it only searches for artwork in the first 3 album tracks, if none is found there it skips this step.
  3. Last.fm artwork search - only if the option "If no image is found locally, muso can search online resources" is ticked.
  4. Amazon artwork search - only if the option "If no image is found locally, muso can search online resources" is ticked.

NB. Any import will invoke the database edit view allowing the user to see and edit the database changes before they are saved - it is the point of saving the database that the artwork search is invoked for new albums.

The artwork search can be re-initiated at any time via the menu option [Tools > Search for Missing Artwork > Full Albums] (or All meaning all albums, full or otherwise). Muso will also re-search for any missing artwork on drilling down to the album view.
