I think what's happening here is you are limiting it to return only 5 results from fanart.tv, and then also filtering it to only show "Front" covers. So if the other Front covers aren't part of the first 5 returned, then they won't be available. Try increasing the limit to 10.
 I never searched for anything else but front covers. I've now increased the number up to ten and now the rest appears. But that still makes no sense.

The limit on result count is applied before it restricts it to specific image types.

Hey guys!

I'm trying to learn how to properly use AAD, but the wiki link is dead so I'll ask here.

a) I want to save every cover as albumart.jpg in the album folder, respecting the directory structure I use.
b) I want AAD to choose the best fitting image and save it automatically, so I don't have to click through hundreds of windows.

How can I properly do these things? If I can pull it off, I'll actually donate something :D.

Yeah, the wiki got killed by sourceforge, unfortunately. To change the filename to save as, in the Folder Browser window click Options, then in the "Specify path to find images" box, put "albumart.jpg" (or "albumart.%extension%" if you want it to obey the correct filetype extension if the image isn't a jpg).

You can't get AAD to choose a "best" image, but you can have it choose the first one that meets the requirements. To do this, do one manual search first and make sure you have the sources that you want selected, along with any options for filtering by size or by cover type. Once you've closed that window those will be the defaults for subsequent searches.

Then, back in the File Browser window, under Options, select "Automatically download and save the first result that meets set criteria", select a bunch of albums (you can use the "Select all albums with missing artwork" if you like) and then hit the "Get Artwork for Selection" button.

Personally, I find "Automatic" works best with a very small set of reliable sources selected; I'd rather it simply left it as missing than put in an incorrect artwork, but you might have different priorities.

Thanks Alex, trying it now.

Does Discdogs search work? I tried selecting only Discdogs are source, and "limit search to one result", which I suppose would pick the first image, but I get "not found" for every album, even popular ones.

Discogs v0.19 is working for me. Check that you can actually find the thing you are looking for on the discogs website directly. If so, please give me an example so I can investigate.

I updated my gracenote script.
Please replace gnClientID and gnUserID with yours before use.
Thanks.

Alex, here's an example: https://imgur.com/a/lBxv0z4. The moment I select last.fm, for example, the image is found immediately.

Try checking the "Unknown" box in the "Filter by cover types" group in the options. Discogs doesn't tag the results with what type they are, so they all come back as unknown.

Hello
I have tons of Albums on a network share. The goal is
1. Batch download covers (Filename cover.png or jpg), without interaction
2. Either with Mp3tag or Foobar
3. If I do so with File Browse in AAD it does not recognise the share
How should the syntax of commands do have to look like for Mp3tag or Foobar.
Thank you

There's no reason it shouldn't work on a network share, the path should just be of the form "\\ServerName\Path". Or you can use the browse button to browse to the share and select it.

If it's really not working, consider temporarily creating a mapped network drive for the share and see if that helps.
