thanks for alerting me to this. I am indeed merging folders and their people image into the metadata/people folder.
How and were do I rub/start the people refresh scheduled task?

Thanks for the tip. After searching the forum I believe that this may not be necessary in my case. Here is what my procedure is.
Because sources for people images are sometimes not to my liking because of wrong resolution or too large resolution as well as terrible pictures themselves, I almost always check the people images before they get put in the structure. So when I copy people images into the metadata/people folder under their starting letter, it is my understanding that after a manual library scan they will then become available for display is that correct? I also understand that the people refresh scan is like doing a manual refresh of am item with the setting of replacing all metadata rather then finding missing metadata is that correct?
Since I most of the time manually update my metadata and all my metadata is current and up to date is there a reason to run the scheduled people refresh task?
@Happy2Play Thanks for your help and assistance it seems that this is your forte and I hope you can provide and help me with this, because I already am spending an exorbitant amount of time to get Emby to the point were I was with MB and I keep telling myself just this last tweak and I am finished. The wife thinks this is never ending project, I am trying to prove her wrong, because happy wife, happy life

Ran the refresh for people on 1050 movies and 145 TV shows with almost 3500 episodes took 41 minutes which makes me think it used the local images already in the people folder. It looks like that people folders that had already images like folder.jpg in them were ignored and that the poster.jpg were from a previous refresh.
All in all it seems to be a success, now on to the tweaking.

Hello, I don't know if that is related to the messages above, but on my emby server there are several actor thumbnails with false ratio aspect if am browsing my movies library in chrome/web browser.

Hi, we'll take a look at this, thanks.
@Luke Did you made some progress ? I still have false actor and poster images in the "gallery view" (if I select "poster view"). Only if I directly click on the actor or the poster and get the detailed page the images is displayed with the correct ratio.

My opinion as of right now that it should be left as it is.
Mh, can I ask why? Did you don't have these false aspect ratio images in your poster-view?. I think the current solution is not optimal. Like the attached image in comment #24 (actor view) or the current attached image (movie poster view) you can see that if the images does not have the right ratio aspect (like 1:1,5) the images is distorted.
