    I have updated the R14 post to include expected release date.

    New dMC R14.x Requests and Suggestions thread, now that R13 is nearing the end of its life cycle.

    Spoon, first, thank you for implementing the "Choose Art" feature I have been requesting for some time. With the new "Choose Art" there are often no results displayed. I am not sure what resources you are searching, but dBpoweramp should at least display a message such as "no results found" or I can't tell if the search crashed or there are no results. BTW, google seems to have plenty of results for the ones I have tried. Albumartexchange is clearly not being searched as they have much better files then the auto search is turning up.

    what search terms are you using? When I search google images manually I get very different results.

    Only spoon can answer for sure, but currently you have to buy the premium meta-data plans every year. I take this to mean that R14 would include access to premium meta-data for as long as you are using R14.

    Correct, metadata access which does not expire after one year.

    The new album art searches and selector are great, although I just noticed that it appears to have put the cover type as 'back cover' (when looking at the resulting rips in Mp3tag). Anyone else noticed this? Will find time later to check if this was a one-off or operator issue...

    I have changed the code slightly to correct this potential issue, next beta release will include.

    The "choose album art" feature worked great until a few days ago. Since then, I only get one or two images per album (labeled AMG or GD3, so I guess those are NOT from a Google Image search). Most likely, this behaviour is related to the recent Google update http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/...-new-look.html.

    Will that apply for upgrades from R12 and R13 as well? Or would we have to buy the full version to get the unlimited metadata access?

    Thanks,

    It would be included in the upgrade price.

    Can you add support for PNG files? All my covers are PNG's as they are lossless and not considerably larger than JPGs.
    It would be nice if the 'arrange audio' encoder plugin would move PNG files as well.
    Maybe you could even add PNG creation support in the CD ripper as an option in the settings?
    This format also makes sense if you take available covers from Google image search which are mostly JPG and might be already compressed considerably - reconverting to fit the dBpoweramp resolution settings would then decrease the quality further.

    If this is a bigger request, feel free to move the post to the feature requests - I'm unaware of the implications of this request.

    Thanks,
    Sebastian

    There is no benefit of converting a JPG to a PNG. The compression and loss has already occurred. If you don't want dB to resize the jpg and loose more quality change the settings.
