    Cheers. I think last night, after spending a couple of solid hours experimenting with it all, my brain had just gotten mashed! I can see your point perfectly now, thanks. Paul.

    Question Re: Artwork Fixes (General Qs)

    Hi,

    Where, please, does 'dBba' source a CDs artwork from?

    Is it possible - in PerfectTUNES - to obtain the LOCATION of where the 'Existing Art' is being sourced from?:

    Art_3.png

    Art_4.jpg

    For albums containing artwork of which either PerfectTUNES suggests it fixes, or that I feel it is not suitable, I have been searching Google Images for replacements. But I am not sure if this procedure is correct because the end results have proven somewhat inadequate.

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    No clue. But if looking yourself, this is a good site.
    https://www.albumartexchange.com/

    when you find something it is just a small version. Click on it to go to the full size art.

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks mate.

    I was looking for the rear cover of Miles Davis's "Black Beauty". That site is useful, thanks, but it only offered the front page:

    https://www.albumartexchange.com/cov...atus=&size=any

    Now, lets say I found this on Google Images (it's not the original CD rear, but I think it looks good, and it will do). Now, the DIMENSIONS of the image are: 1500 x 1500!:

    http://www.theartsdesk.com/sites/def...re%20cover.jpg

    But my MAXIMUM ART dimensions in 'dBpa' are 1000 x 1000!

    Do you need to stick to artwork which is 1000 x 1000, or below? Or can I import an image of any size, please?

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Import an image of any size and dbpa will automatically resize if larger than your max.

    Thanks Gary, As easy as that?! Would you be so kind as to remind me, please, of whether I use 'dBpa' EDIT ID TAG or PerfectTunes to replace such existing artwork? I could not find your specific post of last week. Many thanks.

    I use edit ID tag. But I think you can do this with perfect tunes as well.

    OK, thanks Gary. Will have a try.

    But what if the artwork you have sourced is LESS that the 1000 x 1000 dimensions, please. I mean, because the image will get stretched, does this mean the end result will look inferior? For instance, I was thinking of using this rear-cover (but it is only in the 700's-size):

    Magus.jpg

    Cheers,

    Paul

    If it is smaller it will stay smaller. Won't be stretched.

    I gave up on finding much decent album art online, but this site looks promising. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Gary,

    So do you mean: LOAD FROM FILE:

    Replace1.png

    Replace2.jpg

    ... but the newly amended (uploaded) artwork does not appear in the CD (FLAC) folder?:

    Replace3.png

    ... like it does for disc-1:

    Replace4.png

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Gary,

    So then you will have artwork of different sizes? Will that look uncool/inconsistent, please?

    Doesn't bother me. Life's too short to sweat that sort of small thing. I try for 1000x1000but settle for whatever the best I can find. I am mostly listening. The only time I see the art is when I'm browsing to select something.
