Library Primary Image Generation

Hi Forum - I need some help understanding why some library primary images are generated from library content and others are not. Movies and TV seem fine but my other libraries with Home Movies, Documentaries (Mixed TV & Movies) and things like Trailers, Music, Music Podcasts have a range of generic primary images of varying sizes.

I would like to improve the appearance of these by having the images generated like Movies and TV or at least use my own images and have them be the same size. I have looked at my metadata path X:\Emby\views but this doesn't look like the old ImagesbyName arrangement for storing custom images. A nudge in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks, @Tanamur

Hi Forum - I kind of know when a couple of weeks pass after posting a question that I have probably asked something silly. However, I have gone back and read the ImagesByName Folder tutorial but I no longer find the ImagesByName folder under the metadata path so this may be a bit out of date.

 

I would really like to understand if there is a setting to force mixed content (TV & Movies) libraries to generate an image like pure libraries of TV or Movies and failing that,  I would like to know if there is any way to use my own images.

 

Thanks

Hi, no question is silly. To use your own image, just click on the image in library setup and it will open the image editor. From there you can upload the image of your choice.

Hi Forum - I found the answer to generating library images representation from exisiting content here: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/30910-no-collections-dynamic-image/ 

 

This solved my problem for a mixed content library of documentaries and now matches the TV and Movies library thumb. By "Editing Images" and deleting both of the default images, a new composite images was generated on the next scan.

 

Needless to say, if you have some "Home Movies" content you do NOT want thumbnailed for the home screen, you don't want to do this.
