Adding Fanart Help - JayBomb - 2010-12-28 04:46

I'm still in the process of setting up my XBMC and finally got some organized folders, but what is the best way to add fanart. For example in my music folder (just started today) I have the directory as followed Music > Artist > Albums. I wanted to set a custom image for each Artist folder but it just allows me to click Album Info which loads a bar that does nothing.

But when I set the folder as Music > Albums, the album art work shows but nothing for the artist. How can I get the background image to show like:

Sorry if this is a newb question, but it will definitely help me out Laugh

You need to define a music library (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Music_Library). When the scrapers will populate it, fanart is automagically downloaded.

I'm having a similar issue ...

I have artists where the FanArt is incorrect and I'm wondering how I can replace the images. For example; My album Nelly 5.0 displays the image of Nelly Furtado!

Would appreciate an explanation on how to correct this if it's possible. Big Grin

Thanks Big Grin

Browse the library by artist, press "info" on the appropriate artist, then there is a "fanart" section there where you can browse other pictures (online or on disk).
