  1. Poweramp provides an almost unlimited number of options to personalize this player to suit everyone’s preferences. With this open design, it can almost become intimidating with where to start. I thought I would offer my thoughts on some starting points for the display and layout settings. By no means are these rules, but merely suggestions to try to help some that have requested advice in other threads. And for the record I have no affiliation with the development of the app, I am just another user and fan like you! For this first post, I wanted to start with the very basics. Any of the default or 3rd party skins can help personalize your design, artwork, layout, colour choices, and even font choices to tailor it to be yours. The first thing I would consider is whether you prefer a dark or light display. This can be selected in the “Look and Feel” settings menu. While it can follow your device settings, most users will likely have a preference of one over the other. But one consistent component is the background option. This can be enabled in the main Poweramp settings page, fourth option down. It can be selected on or off regardless of your skin choice. There are just four adjustments in the “Background” menu but the combination of them can lead to some very significant differences in the resulting background. It sets the album art from the file playing as a background for the Now Playing screen. Let’s look at what each setting does, then we can combine them to get the results you want. Background Blur - Affects the focus of the artwork. As the name suggests, it controls how clear the image is, from sharp and distinct on the left end to virtually unrecognizable other than maybe shapes or lines on the right. This is helpful to blend the image away from the main art display, but keeps the detail and levels intact. Background Details - Affects the sharpness of the artwork. The far right end of the slider is detailed, and maintains the full cover characteristics. As you slide to the left the contrast of the dark and light areas start to blend together, until you reach the far left end where the entire image is a single solid colour blend of the art. Background Intensity - Affects the brightness of the artwork. At the lowest end, it is virtually black no matter what colours are in your artwork, while at the highest 250% setting it is almost eyeball burning. This is a key setting depending on your preference I mentioned earlier for a light or dark display. Background Saturation - Affects the amount of colour of the artwork. At 0% it becomes purely grey tones, a black and white image. At the 300% maximum any colours are driven up significantly, great if you want to emphasize the original art. So how do you use these settings to get the perfect album art display? Well that is different for almost every one of us. There is no perfect. Fortunately we have these adjustments to work with. To start with, I make the following settings; Blur full left at less, Details at full right detailed, Intensity and Saturation set to 100%. This essentially makes the background the same as the original art display. You will need to exit the settings to see any changes you make each time. [@maxmp perhaps this can be improved in the future to show the background behind the settings, so the changes can be seen live?] Start your adjustments with Intensity somewhere between 150-250 for light backgrounds, while 15-50 is a good range for dark and still has the cover visible. Next adjust the Saturation, move above 100% to enhance the colours or below to reduce towards grey tones. After that move the details down and blur up, each one step at a time. This may take the most time to get the combination just right. Remember to use a few different covers, what looks good on one may not be so great on another. I hope this quick guide helps to get your background display to be your Perfect!
  2. Hi all I have Poweramp (awesome app btw!) and use KLWP for a live wallpaper on my phone (Samsung S8+). When I play music through Spotify or audio from any other app the cover art shows up fine. When I play through Poweramp it is blurred. Is it that KLWP is sourcing the background image used by Poweramp rather than the clear one? Is there anything I can do about this? Thank you 😊
  3. I don't know if I put this in proper category, as this isn't necessarily a feature request, rather adding to an existing feature. There's a website valled "itunes artwork finder" https://bendodson.com/projects/itunes-artwork-finder/ that you can use to search for and download high-resolution artwork from iTunes. It usually has the best quality/highest resolution album covers I can find. Google images/reverse image search rarely comes up with higher quality covers. It would be cool if when searching for album art in Poweramp, if it could search iTunes aswell. The developer of the site has the source code publicly available on GitHub so other devs can host it themselves, as mentioned at the bottom of the webpage: "NOTE TO DEVELOPERS: If you want to do any automation or hit the API I've written directly, please consider getting the source code I've made publicly available on GitHub and hosting it yourself. I can't guarantee uptime nor give permission for you to hit my server from your own apps so please host the code above on your own server if you wish to do anything like that."

  4. The lock screen feature on my Samsung A50 (Android 9) doesn't work. Cover art shows blurry, even though the album art is well embeded. Happens with every song. I tap the player on the lock screen and it show the album art, which is blurry. Album art properly shown. Lock screen. You have to tap the feature to show the album art. Album art blurry.
  5. Hi, I have some cover art not displayed in my collection. I'm sure the covers are here in my tracks and correctly working as they are perfectly displayed on other softwares. So from my perspective, the issue is definitely Poweramp related. Note that when i check the tag details of the concerned songs it strangely displays image size of "-1x-1" (see pictures attached). I have uploaded 3 sample files in 1 zip on 1fichier file storage that developper team can test here if it can help. I finally add that this occurs with Poweramp 3 build 814 on a Cayin N5iiS player. But again, i'm 99.99% sure the issue is not device-related. Thanks for your help.
  6. Hello! I just got the update on my Poweramp downloaded to my phone two days ago so this new UI thing has taken me a few hours to learn everything anew again. Good job though, very modern! To the topic. I think having the option for the album cover art to stay in view during the music visualization so that it doesn't fade could be great.
  7. Hi Max, you have mentioned previously that you will add an option for the Title/Song info to be placed below the Album Art for those of us who want a slim PA, without the need for 3rd party skins. When can we expect this? TIA.
