    Artwork Display Priority

    There are times when I have cover art embedded in tags but want the separate folder "cover.jpg" to show in LMS web summary views, e.g. albums by artist. For instance, the box artwork (separate file) from a box of reissued 45s that each have sleeve artwork (embedded). Is there a way to set priority for this?

    UPDATE: I've done some further research and learned LMS always gives priority to embedded artwork. Are there any other options? Say, I create subfolders for each 45, remove the embedded artwork, and include a "cover.jpg" in each subfolder. How would that work?

    If they also apear as separate albums . Not as a singel album with each 45 as a disc 1,2,3...
    Each 45 Will pick thier folder jpg . But then you migth aswell embedde them. For each 45

    But LMS do track artwork , so each song can have different artwork embedded .

    For an album LMS pick the embedded art in track one .

    So you could have the boxset as is and embedd different art in each file belonging to different 45’s. You get different art for each track . But it does not solve the issue with the album art your wish to have the boxsett cover as album art .

    I think LMS could need some more refinement here.

    A vile hack could be a 1s long track with silence as track 0 ( or 1 if LMS does not accept 0) in this silent first track you could have the desired album art embedded .
