image 2 (too big to post it)

Hmm, seems that it gets resized...
becuase the icon I had was 512x512px this one is even bigger but it turns out just as small...

it suppose to get resize, but or your album cover is too big or your cdArt is too small ! and I really dont know why because it seems nobody else have this problem.
you never told me what your resolution 1080p or 720p
- olafg - 2009-07-09 04:22
I'm running 720p most of the time(testing). Album covers are from 500x to 1500x but they resize fine, no problem with that. it's cdart that is messing up

weird that also my resolution I really dont know why is doing that !

Could a nice person explain step by step how to get standard cdarts to work using "gimp" lol can't seem to get it right lol

Just how I do it:
Open the picture of the cd you want to work with.
Go to Layer>Transparency>Add Alpha Channel
Select the Ellipse Select Tool, and make a selection around the outside of the cd as shown.
Click Select>Invert (or just hit CTRL+I)
Click Cut (or hit CTRL+X)
Then select the inside of the cd the same way and cut it out.
Click off the image
Go to Image>AutoScale
Go to Image>Scale Image and set it to 500X500 pixels.
You should be left with this.

Is there a way to get fallback on fanart too?

Quote: Is there a way to get fallback on fanart too?no that I know, but if you have other pictures in the root artist_fanart folder I mean directly in the artist_fanart folder(no in artist/band folder) if you have a picture or pictures there like general pictures and the media player dont find fanart in the individual folder it will load pictures from there
