Can only search using artist and album but there are lots of search sources.
You can specify min and max image size and look for front, back, inside, CD and booklet.
Can be used from the command line but it is windoze only.

Interesting tool. Thanks.

I installed it without issue in my Windows10 Pro virtual machine running in Oracle VirtualBox on my Linux Mint laptop. As you say, lots of search sources gathered in one place. 

For the first classical album I tried it on, a total of 28 images were offered. 

Only two were correct (I know because I still have the CD). The two correct images happened to come from Qobuz but so did 5 incorrect images. OTOH, nothing from discogs or the other sources was correct, which surprised me. 

I won't know 'til I use it for a while if it's a compelling alternative to my existing tools. I've done so much scanning of CD booklets that the need is less pressing than it once was.


I had a similar thing happen to me. I had to un-check all the sources on the right hand side and just select some of the more relevant ones.
I presume that you just enabled the classical section half way down the list?

There is also a tag editor for classical music called qoobar at
that looks interesting ! but no longer supported Sad
