Description Of Issue

Additional hardware
mac Mini M1 running roon client

When attempting to add artist image via drag and drop, the client crashes the first time. On the second attempt, the photo upload consistently works. Moving to the next artist, the cycle repeats (crash on first attempt, success on second).


  1. Go to artist view
  2. Select an artist without an image
  3. Select “Edit”
  4. Click the “Add Image” button
  5. Drag and drop a .jpeg image into the dialogue box
    result = client crashes (server continues running, apparently unaffected
  6. Relaunch roon client
  7. Repeat steps 3 - 5
    result = successful upload of image
  8. Select another artist without an image
  9. Repeat starting at step 3
    result = same crash on first attempt and success on second attempt cycle

Note: this has happened on several artists, so I’m guessing it is not an issue of a bad jpeg file

Please let me know if any additional info is needed

Thanks for checking it out. It’ll be interesting to see if you get a repro on it or if it’s specific to my environment.
