Hi Henry, I noticed you plan to implement file upload. When you are doing this, could you make it so that images can also be uploaded? I think it would be possible to write some drag-and-drop routines that would make it possible to browse a site and drag the images into BrowseAmp, for easy album art retrieval. Might be neccessary to pass this info on as an WWW URL, try dragging a link from this WWW board onto your desktop. I think you can do this via javascript, or maybe ActiveX. Might be neccessary also for the skin to pass a parameter to state what the destination file name should be, which would probably be a full path.

That would be very neat, as you could also provide an automatic "search" link that does an AllMusic or Amazon search for the artist/album, to aid getting the image open in a new browser.

Way cool...worth looking into?

Sorry for thinking so long about your ideas...

I hope I can get the file upload to work in the near future. But as far as I remember I had having problems with that before so I stopped working on it but I'll try again.

Once a file upload feature is implemented, you can upload everything you like including images.

try dragging a link from this WWW board onto your desktop
:blink: I didn't ever try this. It also work with images. Cool hint!!
