1 Introduction

This page details information specific to artwork for albums in the music library.

The following artwork types are standard for artists and supported by many skins. For more details see Artwork Types

2 Artist Information Folder

In v18 the concept of the Artist Information Folder is introduced as a new way to handle providing local artist artwork and information via nfo files. The Artist Information Folder is a user nominated folder that Kodi will look in first for artwork or NFO files for any artist.

This topic is of interest to those users that want to provide local artwork for artists, or capture their current artist art and additional data for transfer to another installation of Kodi


3 Local Artwork

Local album artwork is saved in the Artist Information folder as described in the previous section (shown in image).

Artwork settings for the music library are adjusted in the Kodi settings pages here... Settings > Media > Music > Artwork

Artwork from local files is automatically picked up and applied as part of music library scanning or scraping. When local art of the types nominated in the settings page is not found then the first avialable art of that type returned by the scraper is automatically applied as part of scraping.



4 Scraping

The Kodi scrapers can automatically download artwork without any extra effort from the user.

Artwork settings for the music library are adjusted in the Kodi settings pages here... Settings > Media > Music > Artwork

The newer scrapers will use the above settings when scraping and no adjustment in scraper settings for artwork is required.
