AAD 0.46 wants to downgrade some scripts when I check for updates.
Anyway, what you might want to try is using the "Always download full size" checkbox for the sources you use, rather than the background automatic full image downloading. That way the source won't bother with a thumbnail and just go straight for the full size image, so when the progress bar reports search completion, it will be the full size image that's available.
Can you confirm that I understand? Thanks!
For your other request, if you want to keep existing artwork available for comparison, then the best way to do it is to right click on it and choose "Preview". This will open another window showing that artwork that you can leave open while you look at other results.Alex
Also, how is the album art categorized?

P.S. While I'm wishing... any chance of a plugin that would submit the largest local artwork to Google Image search for use with the Visually Similar search? Sometimes the results are clearly picking up words from the auther and title and yet have nothing to do with my album. But the 200x200 image I'm trying to find a bigger version of I can plug into Google Image search manually and what I'm looking for comes right up. Or would that run afoul of your multiple google plugins "rule"?
Google Visually SimilarThis is interesting, but I'm struggling to see how it would fit in to AAD. Obviously it couldn't just be another Source, as those are searched by album and artist name. As, Eli suggests, you could have it as a right click command on an existing image that would launch a new search based just on that image, without searching other sources. Alex

Album Art ExchangeSure, don't see why not. I can't think that they could object to having visitors pointed to their website in a browser. I won't be including it with the standard scripts as I don't think most AAD users would be happy with a browser window opening whenever they did a search, but if you are, have at it: album-art-exchange-browser-launcher.booAlex
Hello Alex,My original statement was "I don't understand why AAD and similar programs are necessary to access the site[/u]." I understand the purpose of the program itself I am with you on the front covers only, until a month ago, this has been our primary focus. As an experiment we have been adding select back covers (sans track lists) and sleeves because some are quite beautiful.If there were some way to only call up the browser page while not allowing direct access, I would be alright with that. I would of course want it to call a detail or gallery page with the result(s) and not the page with the image itself . For example:http://www.albumartexchange.com/covers.php?id=74171 orhttp://www.albumartexchange.com/covers.php...;bgc=&page= and never this: http://www.albumartexchange.com/gallery/im...wn-tasty_02.jpgCheers,Scott
I think where this fits is on albums with vague names that give non-specific searches. If you have correct, but low resolution art, using google image search can be a very helpful way to see if you have find the same art at higher resolutions. I use it all the time.
most of my library, while in the artist/album directory setup has additional unique identifiers after most, but not albums:
[AAX browser launcher] doesn't seem to do anything. Is there something I can change on my system or in the script? Do I need to point it to my browser? When it works, any sense if there is a way to get it to do new tabs, or will it always launch a new window.
Alex, in regard to AAX script it looks like Scott did indeed give a go ahead for this very idea a few years back with the above request of returning gallery results and not the full size images.

Does the script show up in your list of sources? Can you launch a browser window through other links, for example by clicking on the (i) link in a search result? What the script does is simply tell windows to launch the given URL, the same as if you'd done Start, Run and pasted in the URL, or used a URL shortcut file. It should launch the default browser, and that browser will handle it however it is configured to do. I think Firefox can be configured to open new urls in tabs rather than windows, but I don't know about other browsers.Alex

No, clicking on the little (i) icons doesn't do anything on my system either.
OK, got it working! You rock Alex!
Now I have another feature request ;-)The ability to drag and drop a picture into the AAD window. Since AAX is launched in the browser, I now need an efficient way to get the art to the correct folder. The easiest way to do that would be to be able to drag the art to AAD and save from there.

Do the boo scripts have a variable that contains the local path to the tracks?
