Ho folks, I have a lot of artist imagery missing. I appreciate I can add manually but the thought of hitting google to do that myself bores me.
I was thinking is there any software that finds artists based on your library and puts the image in the folder, much like media managers find album art work?
I know I would have to manually select it for upload but at least it would be in the folder of the artist rather than messing with google for hours.
Any such software exist?
Just thinking, do artists have a database they can submit approved images to?
If they do, do they know about it?
You might have some luck with one of the metadata tools for kodi - some like
MediaElch support music metadata fetching - including artists / artist pictures. Usually those programs will save metadata along side of the files and also require a certain directory structure to work sufficiently. But checking it out never hurts.

I have bliss since its inception have the unlimited fixes
But it does not do artist artwork which was my question.
Which album folder would the software dump the artist image to?
I think the best solution is Roon doing the heavy lifting:
I guess I’d like to add a request/comment to this string. So much of the artist-level artwork means nothing to me. In other words, most of it creates no “immediate recognition” help like the album covers do. So I find the artist artwork irrelevant and in fact sometimes detrimental to sifting through artists. I personally would be better off with a simple alphabetical list devoid of any artwork; my scrolling would be way faster. I’m not claiming that no artist artwork would be better. It cou…
My thought is the artist image would go into the artist folder, my folders are laid out artist>album
MediaElch (linked above) would do this. Caveat: if Roon (allmusic) doesn’t have artwork chances are the music scrapers for kodi won’t do much better.
TOTALLY agree. Artist view is pretty useless for me as a result. I’d say we’d be better off having a most-recognizable album as the artist “avatar”.
