Announcement:

From now on http://fanart.tv has a new section that handles record label logos.
These can be uploaded in the standard ones you are already used to:
  • White gradient (from white to transparent) example file
  • Color

Rules:
  • Image Size 400 x 270px
  • Center aligned both horizontal and vertical
  • Try to fill as much width/height as possible while keeping aspect ratio
  • Colored logos need to be visible on all kinds of backgrounds
  • Add a small 1-2px drop shadow/border to a colored logo so if on a lighter skin they’ll out a little more instead of blend in
  • Logo should be authentic to the original record label logo
  • The same logo may be applicable to several record label entries. Please upload it to each one of them

The record label listing uses the http://www.MusicBrainz.org website like it already is used for Artists/albums.
If you feel something is missing or incomplete please update the http://www.MusicBrainz.org website

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forums before posting.
Do NOT e-mail Team-XBMC members asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, make sure you read this first

I am currently making a set of record labels which are missing from my collection based on music brainz scraper.

I am facing a problem:

D:vision records: I cannot name the png as D:vision records, windows is not allowing.
How to solve that problem?


How can I upload labels images to fanart.tv or to any repo (if such repo is there)?

i don't have a solution for D:vision records.

You can search for a record label like you search for a tvshow/movie. Uploading works just the same.

I'll make a script for skinners (or users) to download all available logos.

Example of how we prefer the white ones should look:

[Image: warner-bros-records-4fdc50c74c3ee.png]


Black one:

[Image: warner-bros-records-4fdc50d65845a.png]

These have a very thin balck/white glow around them. Only if this is possible of course because this will be hard to do on very detailed logos
Colored ones are pretty obvious.
Try making some depth in the images if needed using opacity in the image

Just a thought but for the problem of D:vision records, how about creating a rule of sorts such as dropping unusable characters to search. For example D:vision records would be Dvision records, the png is searched for under the same name. I can't imagine having too many labels with this problem.

My two cents, take it or leave it. Wink

lol, we probably will have to swap the server at some point, currently we have one with a 120GB ssd in it with about 50GB free, so at some point we will probably have to swap to one with a 2TB drive in it, whether we make a sideways move to the 100mbit server (same price, same specs, just 2TB drive instead of SSD) or make an upgrade to the 1Gbps, with xeon i7's (vs i5 2400) and 24GB RAM (vs 16GB) will depend on sustainable finances at the time. (it would cost about £42 more a month).

Hey Kode, Not sure if it's a site problem of CDartManager script but just tried grabbing the cdart for Guns n' Roses and instead of cdart it downloads the folder images, Added them manually and is still shows up.

What version of cdART Manager are you using? I just tested the latest version, I found an error with HD Logos, but not this. I even removed all the art from my GNR folders and had the script redownload them again, nothing in the wrong place.
