How do I get artist images to work in Columns UI?

My music library is stored at this location:

S:\Music\Library\

In the 'Library' folder each artist has it's own folder which is named as the album artist, then in that folder is each album folder. i.e.

S:\Music\Library\Iron Maiden\1984 - Powerslave\

...and my artwork is here:

S:\Pictures\Artists\%albumartist%.jpg

But when I add an artist picture script with the above path it doesn't show artist images? I've added the script without the .jpg extension just as it says.

This is the last thing that's stopping me fully switch to Foobar and it's driving me mad!

Help would be greatly appreciated! :)

As is good forum etiquette...

Here's how I got it working:

I am using the Eole theme which uses something called 'Biography'. There's a config file stored here %appdata%\foobar2000\yttm\biography.ini

I first tried to edit the save location for 'Image [Artist]' but couldn't figure it out for some reason so just decided to move the files to the location it saves them in.

To move my custom made artist images I used a program called AdvancedRenamer (https://www.advancedrenamer.com/) with the following script. This assumes that your artist images have the album artist as the filename.

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\yttm\art_img\<Substr:1:1>\<Name>
