    How does RR read album art

    All of my Mp3s have album art in the ID3 tag... does RR read the art from this tag? If not, can I get the art from the tag somehow... I know this may be a stupid question, but I cant seem to find the answer. I get no art when playing mp3s.
    Thanks

    Don't think the current version supports album art within the ID3 tag. What you can do is to use a ID3 tag editor which allows displaying of album art embedded in the tag. Tag&Rename v3.2 allows that. Save the art as a JPG file and place it in the folder for RR to display

    ID3 tag Album art support

    I have Zortam MP3 Media Studio.... I will see if it will let me export jpg. What kind of file naming does RR need then to match the song?
