Very nice and useful! Thanks!I, however, would be happy to see someone picking up the source and writing an origin foobar component with some nice features more: f.e. window where you can browse by artist and see already downloaded pictures or preview pictures before downloading ...
I wrote it in c#, just using System.Xml; This is a very small program, only 200 lines..
However I think making a GUI for it would be enough..I'll see if I can do it when I has some time.

I think that could be something simple: a) a nice window popup with progressbar instead of command prompt window and b) a result window that contains images to be checked for downloading. I have some questions:The downloaded pictures have names that are builded by artist name and number. What is the meaning of the number? The order of storage on disk of randomly picked images or order in Last.fm? I would like to know if for example "David Bowie_12" would be always the same image. In that context let me ask for two three special values for <number> parameter:"ALL" -> would download all images"REST" -> would take a look in the storage folder to find out the image with highest number and then download the rest of available images (assuming the order is fixed by last.fm). Useful to download newly added images."10 MORE" -> similar like "Rest" but just downloads 10 images more.One question more: So far i didn't have success to download images for multiple artists with foo_run wich i am not familiar enough. Did art.exe support that at all and if yes is there a way to achieve that with foo_run?Once again: many thanks for this little tool, it helped me so far to download a huge amount of tasteful images.
artistArtGui.exe <artist> <save_path> <number>
"ALL" and "REST" are not quite practical.. There are too many images in Last.fm's collection, usually one artist can have over 100 photos. Downloading that many... is just not practical.
3. A possibilty to select multiple images and to download the selection
artistArtGui.exe "%artist%" "$replace(%path%,%filename_ext%,)" 100
artistArtGui.exe "%artist%" "K:\artistart\by_artistName\" 100
1. The field for path and artist name could be a little bit longer to show full/more content.
2. An option inside the Gui to show only images that aren't downloaded or only images that are downloaded
4. A possibilty to download all images displayed in the Gui
I have no chance to create a download path that contains artists name. I tried following in foo_run: artistArtGui.exe "%artist%" "C:Artist Art%artist%" 10 But the path field in artistArtGui remains empty.
just filtering by display by "donloaded, not downloaded, all" would be very useful for either browsing one artist downloaded pictures or watch not downloaded images.
Quotejust filtering by display by "donloaded, not downloaded, all" would be very useful for either browsing one artist downloaded pictures or watch not downloaded images.In the meantime i think that feature would have a bad side effect: each time you download an image displayed by "filter: show not downloaded" would cause removal of image and hence an annoying reordering of rest images that makes quick downloading of remaining pictures impossible. You anyway just can see just 12 pictures at same time in window, so you have an good overview anyway.What do you think of possibility to delete stored picture (maybe by clicking an red "X")?
Wow this tool works really well!One little problem though, is there anyway to edit the file name of the pictures?More precisely, I'm trying to fetch pictures for 'AC/DC' and the '/' in the name seem to be creating problems for the filename.Any chance you could an option so that the program would remove any illegal characters?NOTE: I'm using the commandline versionThanks!
Another little features: scrolling with mouse wheel and deleting downloaded images. And: "Reach limit" sounds like a demand - "Limit is reached" sounds somehow better. tongue.gif wink.gif
"C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Artists\art.exe" "%artist%" "%path%" 1
Code: [Select] "C:\Program Files\foobar2000\Artists\art.exe" "%artist%" "%path%" 1Is it possible to expand the command line so it's automatically renaming the file to %artist%.jpg?
