so they show up randomly, it can be difficult as you said its just change the control, from image to multiimage. the only problem would be to create a folder for each show or create a clearArt folder in each show.

what about keeping them like that and just use names like
so you can seek the tvshowx*.png or for tvshowy*.png.
isn't that kind of sorting possible is this environnement?

if you use the multiimage control the files names doesn't matter because the control will load up every and any image in the folder specify.

So for example it would be clearart/True Blood/*.png ?
Would be quite nice and save renaming every clearart we download to fit the naming scheme.

would this cause problems with fanart and season thumbs being in the same folder ?
I dont see any point in having multi images BUT maybe different season Images would be a better option ?
IE season one opens ClearartS1.png and when in season two it displays clearartS2.png
Just an idea

well that's a lot of work to do to make clearart for each season !!!

Quote:at Imaginoshey am thinking in changing the code so the clearArt be stored under the tvshow folder, what do you think ? that way you dont have to even rename the clearArt just name it "clearart"

Hello Blaze, good start, but you've got to know that the pics must be 500x281
I will correct these, but it would make things easier for me if you make them the right size in the future
