I have my music collection in FLAC format with embedded artwork.
Currently SS displays the "cover". Is it possible to have multiple embedded artwork be displayed at the "Album" level?

Generally, all tracks in an album would have the embedded cover . In addition the first track would also have any additional artwork (as per the FLAC spec. http://flac.sourceforge.net/documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_picture ).
Additional artwork might be "back", "CD", "inlay", "inside", etc.

Would it be possible for SS to show that additional artwork? Basically, SS would need to parse the FLAC file and extract all "--block-type=PICTURE".

Thanks a lot for the great work so far.

This would be cool. I would love to be able see more of the art/scans in SqueezeCenter that I also have imbedded in my FLAC files. Sounds like a cool enhancement. I'll be looking for this in version 7.4! ;-) Just kidding. It would be cool someday, though.
Later

Don't forget a PDF reader for booklets on your wishlist!

I know this might have to be in the wishlist category, but I don't think it's that far fetched.
Obviously SS is already "extracting" images from FLAC. It should not be that difficult to pull ALL instead of just one.
That might require changes in the database structure unless it's something done in the Web GUI where it would extract images on demand directly from the source FLAC.
Besides, at the album level, there's space in the page to display additional info.

bump.
Would one of the developers say whether this is something that might be implemented in the near future?
Thanx for all the good work.

see bugs.slimdevices.com and search for artwork.

You'll find at least a few different requests for artwork feature
enhancements. The targets milestone setting will tell you where it is
planned.
Add your votes if you want it to get targetted sooner.

The closest I found was Bug 7444 so I added my comments there. If we get some community input we can definitely vote for it.
