I was just wondering if anybody can help me. Whenever i click on 'edit artist', and then 'lookup for selected artists' AP never finds any new images, it doesn't matter what artist it is, from the very popular to the not so popular. Thanks in advance.

Just saw the answer to my question in another topic, Last.fm have apparently stopped AP using images. I do have another question though, the images from Last.fm (when they supplied them) still appear on AP, does this mean they are taking up space on my hard drive?

Yes. The images of your album covers are in the AlbumPlayerData directory (typically C:\AlbumPlayerData\Covers). This is so they do not have to be looked up more than once, thereby your software loads faster and runs when you're offline. You don't want to delete this. It doesn't take up an unreasonable amount of space.

In AP6, the options for looking up covers and artists are being enhanced, so the last.fm 'broken lookup' problem will be less relevant as it (and "cover in directory") will no longer be the only source of images. In the meantime, you can use the other lookup options in the Collection Editor to use Google or the various Amazon sources to get covers. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of experience looking up artists. Hope this helps.
