    Dave - there is a way to have custom min/max settings to narrow it, e.g. to 450-550. See https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2018/01/09/custom-album-art-sizes/ . Also note the caveats.

    I merged an idea from Bernard Danino:

    The settings available in the interface do not in the end strive for the biggest cover art size available, if you wish to be it so.
    Instead and although you set no maximum size it will usually settle for some averagely low cover art.

    Ok, so are you saying the automatic fetcher should still install art that is better, but not necessarily compliant?

    Thanks for this. It sounds like your main idea is a way to have graduated sizing requirements. I wonder if this other idea could be adapted to fix the situation: http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2025863-provide-a-preferred-size-option-for-selecting-al

    You could say:

    ideal: 500x500+
    ok: 300x300+

    Everything else is disallowed. What do you think?

    Regarding genres, please get in touch via email and attach a debug archive (see http://www.blisshq.com/support/reporting-problems.html ).

    Yeah this makes sense. Consider the use case that you really want art for all music but you want it to be as high quality as possible. So you set the minimum size low or leave it unset to make sure as much art as possible is found, and you run the chance of smaller art being chosen when larger art is available.

    We don't have an Android version, no. Typically, for use with a portable player you could install bliss on a different Windows, Mac or Linux based computer (if you have one) and fix your library from there.

    Agree that more information would be good - you can see the buttons to delete files though, right?

    Ok - but this only has an indirect effect on the folder name. The assigned artist name is what is used to complete a path by the file organisation rule. I'll change the title slightly (let me know if I'm missing something).

    Ah yes - that should workaround it, but at the expense of larger (in terms of data size) images...

    No, if there's already art there it won't see the "folder" file has been changed and re-embed...

    Have you tried BatchPhoto? On a Linux platform, Image Magick will probably do it somehow.

    What you could do is:

    - Set bliss to remove embedded art
    - Apply rules - all embedded art removed
    - Run separate software to convert the folder.jpg files
    - Set bliss to embed art (bliss will embed from folder.* if "folder" is set in the cover art filename field)
    - Apply rules - all non-progressive JPEGs embedded

    Take backups first ;-)

    Is this for embedded art?

    For image files, you could use a separate image processing app.

    Thanks, currently all file movements are relative to the root music folder path. But what you're suggesting is valid (of course, in the case where music files are in different folders, this won't help bring them back together).

    I clarified the title to describe the feature more generally.

    I tested this and after clicking a "Set to" response, only the album in question rescanned.

    A few thoughts that might help us work out what is wrong:

    - Make sure you're using the latest version - there was a fix for rescanning albums there
    - Did you click it when an ongoing library-wide rescan was ongoing?
    - Maybe it was the "Allow ..." fix? That definitely does induce a library-wide rescan

    It's probably best if you can send us a debug archive - "Help" > "Download debug archive" to support@blisshq.com . Tell us, if you can remember, which album you clicked the "Set to" fix on.

    This sounds like a bug - only the album on which "Set genre to" should be rescanned. I'll check this later.

    The idea would be to convert all files from any format to one specific format, ignoring (but including) files already in that format.

    Interesting comment. You don't think maintaining different versions of a file is a form of management?

    The idea was also partly inspired by mp3fs ( http://mp3fs.sourceforge.net/ ) although obviously without the FUSE filesystem having the mirror leads to more duplication, so it's not quite as elegant.

    Nicely summarised.

    To an extent, 2a is in principle already covered by the accuracy rules - only trouble is it doesn't work for completing missing fields!

    Thanks for the very clear clarification!

    What sort of problems? Do you mean issues with the way bliss updates the album artist tag?

    Right now, bliss shows different tags depending on the album artist... If an album artist is set, that is what is shown in the artist field. If not, it's the track artists.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Sounds good. I think the 'rule' for this might be a checkbox declaring "album artist" must be set for each album, and the response (when it isn't) is to set the album artist as you say.

    Could also check that the album artist is accurate... I had a case the other day where two tracks on an album had different album artists, and the rest of the tracks had no album artist. That's asking for trouble...

    You can already add tags to the "ARTIST" tag using the Tags page - also if these are official releases they should be flagged as incorrect information.

    Given that, I don't understand exactly what you need - are you saying you want the groups of tracks within an album to be separated by artist?

    They are great suggestions, however, can you create separate suggestions for each task? There should be one each for:

    - Ape support
    - WavPack support
    - 31 band equalizer

    If we just have one ticket for all of these it is impossible to keep track of who is voting for what - some people are probably not interested in the 31 band equalizer.

    Interesting idea! I assume this is to support players that don't support disc numbers? You could also have a different syntax for the track number field, e.g.

    0101 - Disc 1, track 1
    0102 - Disc 1, track 2
    0103
    ...
    0201 - Disc 2, track 1

    This is a really good idea and would working nicely with the singular artwork rule.

    Oh - I see - yes rescan happens when you click the top-level button.

    There is an annoying 5-10 minute wait after dropping new files, experienced that myself this morning...

    Also "Rescan for new and updated files" will be quicker than a "Rescan".

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    "Rescan" on any of the top level pages (the home page (Inbox), Albums, Artists et al) will rescan the whole library.

    "Rescan" on any individual album page will only rescan that album.

    Have you done this accidentally yourself? I can't remember ever doing it accidentally...
