Artist View Images?

+1 for any option to prevent seeing wrong artist pictures from last.fm!

Having the first option for local stored artists images would be nice to have.
last.fm doesnt have all artists or even wrong ones!

Any news on artist picture?
Searching the web for artists produces weird results.
According to Volumio, Vincenzo Bellini looks like:
124ba2e8-15e8-458a-934a-051aacbfb76f
Nice trial but the truth is that Bellini was this man:
Vincenzo_bellini

The only way I have found is cheating Volumio by saving the good picture but with the web found name.
In this case, the nice women trio was:
/data/albumart/web/Bellini/124ba2e8-15e8-458a-934a-051aacbfb76f.jpg
So I deleted this one and saved the real Bellini with the same name.
But this is quite nonsense, isn’t it?

@Luis1 to be fair, the picture of the three ladies belongs to a German band called “Bellini”. If you go to last.fm, and search for “Bellini”, this is the first result. If you search for “Vincenzo Bellini” then the composer is displayed as the first result. Are you sure that your files are tagged with “Vincenzo Bellini” and not just “Bellini”?

But Volumio should allow to easily change the picture.
If the user accepts the proposed picture it is good.
But there should be an option for assigning a different picture.
I have all my artists (composers) tagged by their best known name.
For example I don’t write Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, just Mozart or Ludwig Van Beethoven, just Beethoven. Like this is easier searching for artist in alfabetical order.

@Luis1

For my personal taste i prefer the look of the Volumio finding…

Just kidding, but like Voluminous says, how should Volumio know your abreviations for easier finding ?

But you are not reading my proposed workaround: There should be an EASY option to overide the Volumio finding.
Mine is finding the good picture and renaming it with the Volumio name finding.
In any case I am considering uninstalling Volumio and looking for something more adapted to my preferences.
Por example the lacking of real random playing the complete list of tracks is enough to start looking for a different solution.
No information of track file path, for example, no information on which Volumio version is installed…
Nice trial but not convincing.
So, adios amigos, but thanks anyway for allowing an almost wonserful product.

if you ask for a banana, don’t think you will get a chiquita …
