New ClearArt Feature

Tue Nov 21, 2017 4:06 pm

like the new clearart feature, bit tricky finding decent band png images, any ideas ?. use Topaz ReMask to convert jpgs but needs a lot of work to get a good result.

I've found some great sources already for Hi-Res PNG artist images. Mostly all found through Google image search with "Large" and "Transparent" filters enabled (under tools).

http://www.grammy.com
example: https://www.grammy.com/grammys/artists/adele
direct link: https://www.grammy.com/sites/com/files/ ... 173502.png
NOTE: I use google with the grammy site search to find the direct links

some popular artists here

http://www.pngall.com/category/music
Loads of artists on here also

Deviantart also has loads of hi res images but they are quite spread out.

Also don't forget you can find the Hi-Res artist clearlogos on Fanart.tv

Link is at the bottom of their TADB page.

I'm a GIMP user myself but I am rather jealous of this feature that has just been announced by Adobe Photoshop devs

Don't forget to use white logos if possible, black logos won't show on darker backgrounds.

This is an example of one which will need replacing I think.

Estuary Mod and Aeon Nox 5 mod I think

Work is already being done to integrate these new artwork formats into the kodi JSON api, so it should start showing in most skins one that is merged. The Add-on author of "Artwork Beef" has already said he will support them when it comes out for music so the future is looking good for new music artwork!
