How does Poweramp automatically find local artist images?

Recommended Posts

I have band logo images in JPG format for bands in my music library on my PC. Currently all of the images are in separate, single folder.

The music library on my smartphone is using the following folder structure:

SD Card \ Music \ %AlbumArtist% \ %Year% %Album% \ %Filename%.%FileExtension%

Album art is located inside the '%Year% %Album%' folder as Folder.jpg and is picked up automatically by Poweramp.

If I placed a copy of the artist image in SD Card \ Music \ %AlbumArtist% \ [Artist Image] would they be picked up automatically?

Currently, the filename for every artist image is formatted as %AlbumArtist%.jpg. 

Thank you,

MilezMetal

Poweramp saves artwork images as %Artist%.jpg into the internal storage folder /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/artist_art/. They would be matched with the %Artist% tags, not "%AlbumArtist% tags. Not sure what sort of rescan would be needed to pick any new or updated files though, or if it's done on-the-fly.

Thanks, copying the files directly into that folder worked perfectly! Had to enable the option to download artist images for them to appear.
