Cover art questions

Stephen Holmes
Hi all:

First & not sure if this is an obvious question but I was wondering how
one might manually add cover art to an album where it's missing?  In
iTunes, I can drag an image onto the track/album properties and it sets
it up.

Second, I noticed that if I double-click on an album that doesn't have
cover-art (in the albums panel), an attempt is made to download that
cover-art - which makes sense.  However, if I select a completely
unrelated album and double-click on its CD icon, then underneath the
"Downloading cover art" text, appears the track name from the last album
I was playing.  Is this a bug?

Cheers
Steve.

In Banshee 0.13.x it was possible to drag custom album art onto the
small album art thumbnail near the progress meter. However, in Banshee
1.0, it has not been implemented. So currently the only way to use
custom album art is to save it as ~/.cache/album-art/$artist-$album.jpg
where $artist is the artist, in lower case and stripped of spaces, and
$album is the album, in lower case and stripped of spaces.

Something like this was in 0.13.x and will surely added to 1.x soon.
Right now you will have to add files manually to ~/.cache/album-art/

I can confirm this. I filed a bug¹ for this so feel free to CC yourself.
