Hi

Latest version of DBPowerAmp CD Ripper
Windows 8.1 64

Steps to reproduce
1) insert a cd
2) Use CD Ripper
3) Go to Album Art in the bottom right corner
4) If a piece of Album Art is already selected, press on the "+" and opt for "Choose (from the internet)"
5) Click on any art work that is different from your "Current"
6) Instead of adding the second piece of artwork, it is now replaced by what you picked
This renders the need to add multiple pieces of artwork from the internet useless. The steps also work when you remove all album art first. Effectively, you can select only one piece of art from the internet. This becomes a problem when you want both the album cover as well as the back of the CD.

As a comparison
1) insert a cd
2) Use CD Ripper
3) Go to Album Art in the bottom right corner
4) If a piece of Album Art is already selected, press on the "+" and opt for ANY OTHER OPTION THAN "Choose (from the internet)"
5) Select the artwork
6) You now have two pieces of artwork with your rip

What we need is the following:
- When selecting multiple Album Art from the internet we need to be able to state whether we want to replace the already selected album art or whether to add to the already selected album art.

I think at the moment the only option is to save the album art to disk and then add it via "Load (from file)".

This is as it has been designed as the search from internet is supposed to only return front cover art.

It returns much more than that :-) It returns sleeves, back covers, song texts, artist photos, etc. etc.

For the next release, is it possible to request this as an enhancement?

good idea. Post this in the "wish list" forum so that it perhaps will be looked at later.
