    Artwork - correction and order of display

    Can someone clarify some artwork related questions.

    1. FLACs - Artist/Album folder structure. If the folder contains a JPG called folder.jpg AND tracks contain an embedded JPG which file does LMS display in Albums etc ? (I know embedded JPGs is superfluous but one of my rippers insists on adding them if artwork is found)
    2. If I find an error and correct folder based Artwork what is the best method / is there a way of getting LMS to update the database without a complete clear and rescan ?
    3. Similarly if I correct track based Artwork what is the best method / is there a way of getting LMS to update the database without a complete clear and rescan ?

    1. Embedded is prefered over folsr.jpg . But i dont remember the logic on which files it choses if no embedded art is found folder.jpg , cover.jpg front.jpg and then whatever it can find ? something like that .

    Thanks both. It appears that this area is one of those great mysteries that only Michael knows the answer to.

    To elaborate further .what know.

    Embedded is the firats choice .

    LMS understand track art ,so albums with different artwork per song is not a problem ( as some downloads albums are deriverad these days ) .

    But the embedded art in the first track becomes album art and represents the whole album in menus handling albums .

    Even more confusing can be that not alll third party controllers in all different versions they come in repsect track art.
    So web-UI in LMS and what you see in other places can be different .
