I spent a whole weekend tagging and searching covers, and Covart Explorer was a great help.
One thing I think could make it a bit better still would be to have a list below the cover, where other image files are listed. In many cases, I found that I did have the covers in some shape or form, be it as a whole scanned booklet, special edition cover, promo stickers or whatever else they manage to add to an album. There'd be no need to expand on the cover searching algorithm - it'd just be a simpler way to quickly glance looks at those other files than opening the directory (thanks for the insight to add that under right click
) and then by rightclicking the file, open with and anything but photoshop which likes my PNG and BMPs, but not my JPGs. (On that note.. Photoshop is awesome, but not as a viewer. I really need to make something else my doubleclick action, but I keep forgetting to do it..)
Anyhow yeah, that was a little derail. Thanks for a great app, it served its purpose well - I just hope I can manage to keep on top of my covers from here on forth or I'll end up coming back for more...
