Image size challenges

Post by vlrdngr » Wed Jul 10, 2019 8:23 am

A few upgrades ago my node2 became quite annoying when it comes to image size. After some searching here the image apparentlhy was limited to 700 kb, but this now is changed to 600 kb (?). I have a library of about 3500 albums, some old albums that have been in my library for years with images up to 800 kb that show up fine, but newly added albums with an image size of over 600 kb show the "image too large" message.

I am a graphic designer, I know my way around Photoshop, so I resize all my images to 800 x 800 px, less than 600 kb. Still I see the "image too large" message. I make the new image WAAAY smaller, and guess what... I STILL get that message.
I deleted all image files, I rebuilt the index, all to no avail.

Have you checked to see if you have any large embedded artwork?

I did. I even removed the embedded artwork completely, the problem persists.

Very odd...

Try a “cover.jpg” as that overrides all other artwork

Rebuild index, then Close app, then use reload artwork in the app.

Don't forget to Rebuild the Index and to reload Album Artwork to empty the App Cache...
