Where is the default album art file located?
I would like to replace this file, but I can't find it. I searched the Foobar2000 folder in /Program Files and in appdata/roaming. A search of this forum got no hits. Someone knows!

Thanks,
Bob

Do you mean the picture that is shown if neither embedded nor external artwork is available or matches your album art search patterns? This picture is hard-coded.

To change that picture, go to File > Display -> "Stub image path".
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.

what default art?

Guess you should follow above advice. I have never had a default art. Maybe I nuked it long ago and have long forgotten. For me, no art available = blank.

Edit: more explicitly blank image with text as noted below.

what picture?  the default UI artwork viewer displays text saying [no image] when no artwork is found. if you mean the musical note logo then of course that only applies to columns UI.

Ouch. Yes, I am using Columns UI and thought the DUI would behave similar concerning this matter. Probably I should more often switch to the default user interface. 

Anyhow, the "Stub image path"-function belongs to the DUI and then replaces that text saying "no image", doesn't it? If I am wrong again or the OP meant something other, moderators will please delete my contributions to this thread.
