As much as I love the way the artist banners look (when they are available) the inconsistent way the artist images are displayed depending on the resolution of the available image bothers me more. I know this is very OCD of me but I would much rather just have the artist images be displayed in a consistent manner. In my 1417 artist library more often than not I do not have the banner. Perhaps default to the small size that is more readily available like 500x500, and place it on a blurred background like it is?
Thoughts? Should I just take some meds for my OCD?
I think you are missing the point. I have over 1400 artists. To go through each one to see which ones needs banners is not reasonable. My point is that Roon should just pick an artist image strategy and stick with it so there is consistency.
What it seems you are suggesting is that Roon defaults to lowest common denominator of artwork.
I prefer what Roon does now … which is to fill the available space with the best image available and if it is not larger enough to fit the space fully then it pads it with the blurred background boarder.
As and when better images are available Roon (from metadata sources or user) it will take advantage and present them appropriately.
Dont get me wrong. I love the banners when they are available but at least for me, more often than not my artists do not have banners. The resulting implementation of the small artist image looks terrible. Additionally, I just cant stand the inconsistency (see first post about taking meds for my OCD). Also, why is the non banner artist image so smalll? Perhaps if Roon made it bigger it wouldnt look so odd against a large albeit blurred banner.
Yeah I have a lot of artists too, and I just did it bit by bit as Chris says. Took a few weeks to complete in this manner, and didn’t find large enough images for all artists, but most have banners now.
