i update to the newest nightly for 7.3 pretty often...
sometime in the last few weeks i noticed that the Folder.jpgs aspect ratios were no longer being maintained, now everything gets stretched to 170x170
(i set 170 in the settings)
but the aspect ratio used to always be maintained, now it isn't...
is this by design? anyone shed some light on this?

I didn’t have time to check on the latest nightly, but I’d vote strongly for keeping the aspect ratio.
I’ve been using 160x160 px, 72 dpi images inside the files forever and a day since they need to go on a web page and don’t generate too much overhead in the files (usually 10-15 KB). And it’s so easy generating some white space or transparent background if the image won’t fit.
(I use a batch Mp3tag export for this, calling ImageMagick’s convert.)
Just in case anyone is interested:
convert sourcefile -thumbnail 160x160 -background white -gravity center -extent 160x160 -density 72x72 -quality 90 -interlace line destinationfile.jpg

MrS, where are you seeing the change in the aspect ratios, in the SC web ui, on the SBC, or both? I haven't noticed it, but most of my album art is 1:1 aspect ratio anyway (main exceptions being non-album images that I use for concert tracks downloaded from LMA).
@moonbase: both 160x160 and 170x170 have the same aspect ratio, namely 1:1, so you probably needn't be concerned.Nothing high-end, but music anywhere I want it, and it's 100% wind powered.

the webUI, i haven't checked the SBC.
what i would like is the longest side of any given image to be 170 as i set it, and the other side then proportionally adjusted to maintain aspect ratio.
it used to be like that, more or less, as i recall.

Please enable artwork debug and access the image URL. This will output a few lines on what it's doing. You should clear your Cache/Artwork directory before doing this.

i know how lame this seems, but i don't know how to do any of that, or what you mean.
where do i enable artwork debug?
what do you mean access the image url?
where are the lines output?
where/what is the cache/artwork dir i should clear, and by that do you mean delete?

Settings -> Advanced -> Logging
By access the image URL, I mean right click on the image, copy the
URL, and go directly there in your browser. Use shift-reload if
necessary to force it to reload from the server.
After this there will be some lines in your log file.
To find your cache dir, go to Settings -> Information, near the bottom
of the page it will display your cache directory. The folder Artwork
is inside this directory.

i'm sorry, i never did any of that...
what i did do, was install IE8 and then 7.3.3 25650, (an increase from 24750 or thereabouts)
the newer build, or a combo of both things, fixed my issue. (it wasn't just IE8 alone tho, i still had the issue with IE8 and the older build)
i thought it might be this bug:
(my OP predates the bug by a couple months)
