    I have one directory called photos, another called mp3s. I import both, result is that my images have a lot of folder.jpegs and AlbumArt.jpegs from the music folders.
    Obviously I like seeing the images when listening to music but in the Photo tree, no. Obviously I can alter the import.js to filter out those, but then would I still be able to see the covers of the cds?
    I believe there should be some standard way of helping with such a case. No idea how.

    Thanks for considering

    The covers are not taken from the images that are in the same directory - the covers are extracted from the audio files (i.e. ID3 album art tags that are embedded in the mp3s).

    Unfortunately there is no way to select what you want to import "per directory", you can do some server wide settings which will affect everything, but this is probably not what you want.

    Kind regards,
