I was wondering how to add a picture icon to a song or album I have added to my Library collection. After adding a song.. A blank post-it  style icon appears. (Blue post-it... See Picture)  "Lady Gaga born this way" ( there is also a green one too!)


Thanks in advance for any help..

I think with mp3, it tries to assign a cover to it and leaves it blank if it doesn't recognize it.  Then you have to pull up the library on your computer, right click on cover art and edit.  Then you can resync it to your tablet.

An easier way is to use the Album Art Grabber app that gives you several options.

Dang tried both ways.. No luck :-[...
 I did get "album cover grabber" to find and save the cover art in the application itself.
 I even asked "Album Cover grabber" to" rescan Media" in the preferences. Still no luck. ???

I have had the same issue which I posted about earlier.
I have several albums which I have placed on the nexus from my laptop.
Three of them I have got the artwork and the other ones I just get the post it design you mention.
The strange thing is that the artwork is there when I look in the gallery.

Well, I think it depends on what type of music we're dealing with (MP3, itunes,  Youtube conversion, etc.)   

When you go to Google Music (Google Play)on your laptop, click on the album, then click on the bottom right arrow which brings up a menu.  Then select edit album info.  From there, you can choose a file to place on your album.

In Album Art Grabber (on your tablet only, no laptop), after you download it from Playstore, click "open" and it takes you straight to your collection that doesn't have artwork.  Just click on the album and it should say choose image from (Last FM, MusicBrainz or your SDCard).  Hope this helps!

Last edit:  Jamaicman, in settings, I do not have any options selected like you do (Autosave, etc.)  I wonder if that is making a difference?
