I think that your tutorial, or the forum config, is broken.

ie. can you see this image? Image

I can't see the image in preview.

Here is how I added the image to this post, ie. following your tutorial:

Code: Select all

My tutorial do not show DropBox which do not allow direct access to image, but renders page and thus the reason why you can't attach image directly but you need to copy/paste link.

eg. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4gxksehjtvt05 ... 0cream.png

OK, I only use Dropbox, so didn't know that the img tag worked OK with other services.

But maybe you didn't notice that you were posting your tutorial as an answer to the OP, who had specifically said that he was going to use Dropbox.

Seems that DropBox works too, but you need to click the link at first > right-click > copy image address and then put the address like this (so it is a bit complicated):

I'm not quite sure if I should resend the pictures...

But I am learning about the way MM finds the pictures. I think it is as follows.

The issue happens while I am still in the process of finding all artist artwork. For the artists that are already done, I don't see issues. So that makes me confident that in regular usage, artist artwork will work fine. So the problem I bring forward in this topic is related to the initial phase when you are collecting the artist artwork.

When MM encounters a picture which is somehow "difficult" is stops searching. If I then manually do something to make it progress, some of the pictures get wrong (sometimes). However, as far as I know, it is automatically corrected later.

For example: the first picture for the artist "Ora Sittner" is somehow "difficult".

Another "difficult" one which gives a "broken link": "orchestre et choeurs du théâtre de la monnaie"

Great, thanks.

I would also prefer MM to keep searching missing artist artwork, not just the artists that are visible on the screen.
For larger collections it is annoying that you have to scroll manually through the whole alphabet.
Is this a deliberate choice? In that case I suggest you reconsider it.

It is deliberate choice, because services like Discogs, where most relevant images are found, have limitations of queries per IP per minute. So MM searches only images, which are needed for current display, to avoid ban of the whole IP. This is why the search is also quite slow, they allow only limited number of queries and more queries in a minute would lead to IP ban.

OK, I understand. Still, maybe it is possible to continue the lookup at a very low pace.
