Album Art Converter
1 Attachment(s)

My Name is larc0s, and I am new to Rockbox.

I love Rockbox since I saw it the first time. I also made an own Theme for it ;)
(See "U like me?" in the Theme Forum, hope you like it)

I also love it to see my Albumarts, but all my Covers are in .jpg, larger than 130x130 Pixel and named "folder.jpg".

I could not find any Programm that convert my Pics from jpeg to bmp, resizes the Pics and renames them, with just a few clicks.

So i wrote a c# Prog on my own. It works for me....hope it will work for you too ;)

Try it :)



I redesigned the GUI al little bit and added a "progresbar" (so it wont hang anymore while converting) :) Now its even better ;)

Now you can change the Size or keep the original Size :)

P.S.: I think you need .net 2.0 :)

I cannot seem to get it to run on my Windows XP machine. I have .NET 2.0 installed.

Is there a max resolution for Album Art in Rockbox? I took a look at the patch tracker and wiki for it, but never found anything to that effect. I know some of the e200 themes use album art that's larger than 130 pixels per side (e.g. 162 x 162), and -- if there really is no limit -- I'd personally rather keep the resolution the same as the source jpegs. Can you perhaps include an option to customize/maintain resolution in your program, larc0s?

@epithetless: It's done :) Hope you was thinking about something like that :)

epithetless 10-10-2007 11:27 AM

That's great, larc0s -- Thanks for listening! As a further suggestion, it might be nice to have a check box under "Size" that says something like "Keep original size" and maintains the original jpeg's resolution so we don't have to figure it out for each jpeg and enter it manually.

Great program!

larc0s 10-10-2007 06:05 PM

So, it's done :) I added a "Keep Size" CheckBox ;)

epithetless 10-10-2007 07:17 PM

You're awesome, larc0s! :D

i dont want to sound like such a n00b, but how do i use this program? Actually what do i need to name the bmp files so rockbox recognizes them as album art?

surfer777 10-20-2007 08:52 AM

ok, i use windows media player and i can't seem to find where my album art files are located. this program looks awesome and i really want to try it out---can someone help me find my files? thanks!

Disable "hide system files" and activate "show hidden files" hin the folder options.

surfer777 10-20-2007 12:42 PM

ok, so now how do i access my album art?

surfer777 10-25-2007 02:46 PM

The program won't work for me---all I get are the boxes, no black background, no typing such as "Which Directory" or "Which Files." Can someone help?

EDIT: nevermind figured it out

lsf 10-26-2007 09:35 AM

This works great, thanks very much.

Hi, I keep having the same problem, how have you solved it? :)


murphinator 11-03-2007 01:29 AM

I also have this problem. Could you share your solution?

JCFantasy23 01-21-2008 10:41 AM

Nothing happens when I configure it and press the button either.

minoplis 02-27-2008 10:12 PM

i'm also having the same problem... the program doesn't seem to work for me...

hotrod 02-28-2008 08:29 AM

Just an FYI, you need to already have album art in you music folders....Many times they are saved as "Album Art.jpg" or "Cover.jpg" or "Front.jpg" etc. so you need to enter that name style into the _____________.jpg box.... The program will then search the directory where you point it and find all the files that are named "Album Art.jpg" for example and create a corresponding "cover.bmp" file with the sizes you specify.

The program works for me....on Vista Ultimate.
