I have added cover art to the site but when I then do the lookup it doesn’t retrieve the cover art I added to the site. Why is this?
It could be that the edit is still pending. There is an option in Picard (under Cover Art > Cover Art Archive) to only download approved cover art. If you untick that box, Picard should download the new cover art.
I ran into an interesting problem when I uploaded some cover art. After I added it, I realized that I had not checked the “Front” checkbox, so it didn’t know what kind of art it was.
When I downloaded the cover, it was saved as “unknown” (makes sense). I went back and check the checkbox, but it would still save as unknown. I assume I would have to wait for that edit to finish before it would get renamed.
I got tired of waiting, so I deleted it and re-uploaded with the front checkbox checked. Worked great then!
