To assign a picture to a playlist enter the playlist editor, load a playlist and load a picture.

To assign a picture to a single item, save a pic in the images folder with the same name that you wrote in the item property in the title box.
To automatic enable the upload to your ftp server enable the checkbox on the left, a file called OnAir.jpg will be constantly uploaded, updated on your ftp server.
If the checkbox Download and install automatically is active, MB STUDIO will automatically search for covers on internet
