Help Simple album art question....(SOLVED)

I'm sure this has been addressed here numerous times but I cannot find it at the moment, and the rockbox site is down right now =(

Just need a quick album art how to run down.

I know they need to be in .bmp format.
What size? 300x300?
Place them in the same folder the album music is in.
What do I name it? album.bmp? cover.bmp, (album name).bmp

Already know how to convert and resize and all that good stuff, just need to know those couple things to get my artwork going.

Thank you

the size depends on the theme your using. if you are using a build that has the bitmap resize patch then your bitmaps can be any size mine are 176x176 since that's the max width of the screen. since you have album folders just name the bitmaps cover.bmp and place its directly into the folder.

hope this helps

I am just using the default 3.0 Rockbox and I am using one of the themes from the forums here that is updated to work with 3.0.

I am trying out the Energon theme if that helps...

For those who would like to figure this out for themselves... just open the ".wps" file in your favorite word processor and search for the line that starts with "%Cl". The last two numbers in the line will be the size of the album art.

For instance in the energon theme you'll see %Cl|38|24|c100|c100|
So, you can see the album art will be set to 100x100 as helpme123 pointed out.
