      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code. It is hoped this will be ready for final beta-testing by the end of the May. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

Album cover for whole album, not just the single song?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

how can I tell Poweramp to use the downloaded album cover not only for the song, but for the whole album instead?

Downloaded covers are per-song, not per-album (as some tracks won't even have album titles). If you want to make a cover for an album, you could save a JPG image file inside the folder for that album. See http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/323535-how-album-art-for-a-track-is-selected for more details. Or just embed the cover image into each track using a batch tag editor.

I have many albums, all with album titles, PA hasn't solved this intelligently enough for my liking and doing it manually is not even practical

As long as each track has correctly embedded Title tags, then PA should still find artwork for each song anyway, it will just do it track by track. Personally I prefer to embed them though, saves all the problems of going through the whole process again after re-installs, moving to new devices, etc. A batch editor will do that pretty easily.

Ah ok, I just tested this by removing the unwanted cover and PA downloads the right one then, which is actually applied for the whole album automatically

Yes, as you play each new track it will look for a matching cover and use that, so it quickly builds up a full list.

Artwork in library lists (e.g. Albums) is based on the art for one song, usually the last one in the album (as that is the last one it reads when scanning).
