album art doesn't show picture that was placed in folder
So I placed some covers into their respective album folders and titled them "front.jpg" (or .png if it's a png).

They used to actually show up, now when I open f2k, there is no album art showing up.

here's what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/U53Ic.png

the albums that came with embedded album art show the cover, the ones where i added an image don't show anything. Restarting f2k doesn't work.

any ideas on how I can fix this?

You omitted to mention what has changed in the interim.

nothing at all! I haven't changed a single thing, I've only added a few more albums to my library. But i doubt that's the reason for what's happening now.

Can you try adding front.png to the bottom of the list.

Looks you're using Columns UI.

Have you added the sources to the following as well?

Preferences > Display > Columns UI > Artwork

That's it! There was nothing under sources for some reason, so I entered "front" for Front Cover, and now it works.

Thanks a lot for your help!
