Sorry to bother everyone with this, I’m just excited because I’m so close to having my whole music collection near-perfectly catalogued! MusicBrainz and Picard are wonderful…
So, I have exactly 3 releases that Picard (now version 2.1) won’t load the cover artwork for:
After reading some similar threads here, I tried unticking “download only cover art images matching selected types”, and that fixes the issue. So you’d think these three releases’ covers would simply be missing the “front” type. Except I checked, and they’re not. Then you might think I’ve been customising the “cover art types” list in Picard, but no, it’s set to include “front” and exclude “raw/unedited” and “watermark”, so everything looks good to me there.
For all three of these releases, I uploaded the artwork myself, so it’s most likely that I missed a step, but I can’t for the life of me figure out what. Can anyone tell what I’ve forgotten to do? (I’ve uploaded a lot more cover artwork in between these, the rest without incident, so it’s a rare issue for me, whatever it is.)
I’ve avoided adding the booklet type to these, as they’re digital downloads, but I don’t think that should make a difference? Though it is something they have in common.
