Album artwork not showing in Album view

Hi there, as above, when I’m in Album view I have no artwork showing.

My music library is fairly carefully curated, it’s held on a separate NAS drive and all the albums have folder.jpg files in them, all 1400x1400 resolution scanned from their original sleeves. I just scanned my library with Perfecttunes and it’s fine.

When I click on an album to reveal all the tracks, th artwork is shown against the tracks, just not against the album.

I’ve checked various threads here but it looks like the settings options have changed over the years so some of the previous info doesn’t work with the current release. Oh, I’m running Volumio on a Raspberry Pi 4.

Many thanks for any info and suggestions.

Those album art files are likely too big.
I think there’s a file size limit, but I’ve noticed that images with too large pixel dimensions don’t work either.
I’ve standardised on 500px x 500px album art, all named folder.jpg in with the music files of each album. If I have bigger artwork, I keep that in there too, but named folder-lg.jpg.

Hi, many thanks for taking the time to respond to me on this.

So, I’ve just tried resizing one of the album art files to 500x500, saved it, reset the album art cache etc, reloaded the page and still nothing showing up in the album view.

So what is the size limit for album art files exactly? Surely someone here must know?

Is it named folder. or cover.
Those are the two used, jpg or png OK I think
A 500px x 500px jpg will be well under the file size limit (I think it’s 2 MB).

Hi, mine are all “Folder.jpg”

OK, it sounds like you’ve done everything right, I’m not sure why the images aren’t displaying.

Thanks very much for your time and effort pwstereo. Is there a way to request support on an issue like this? Plus also, I’m finding even just playing tracks from my library doesn’t seem to be working - it’s like I’m missing something here! Is there a manual on how to use this software somewhere?

It can be a bit frustrating at times. I had some difficulty at the start.
Most of my issues were to do with the tagging of my music files.
Use something like MP3Tag to check and correct the tags in your music files (even wav or flac works despite the program name). Consistency in the folder structure, file naming, and tagging will pay off in better behaviour and display of your music.
