Album art in list view, bigger album artwork everywhere else

Many users are visually driven, not data driven. It helps to be able to see album art to recognize a track, rather than reading text. iTunes 10 has coverflow as a fast way to browse and recognize releases.

Also, the existing album art is *teeny tiny*. Make it bigger please.

Let’s get some more votes. We’ve tried to keep this very crate digging and grid based to allow for the most content on-screen.

    this is really important.. especially if you want people to move from itunes which is all visual.. would be probably the best marketing.. it's the only thing beatport pro is really missing

    It's a balance between cramming content and make it findable. There's going to be different use cases for each model, so probably having it as an optional column (with optional cover art size) in the list shouldn't be a problem.

    In my experience — and it might be related that I started DJing using vinyl — using the association I make between a tune and its cover makes finding such tune in a large list much easer than if I have to scan through plain text. It's also helpful to establish such a connection when you just purchased the tune and are trying to memorise it because you'd always see it not only once you selected it.

    I completely agree.
    If it's looks like store's cart, that's super easy to find music.

    They already made the interface for store cart, so must be easy to make it same for the list view.

    Also on Properties pane the artwork could be much bigger. Now there is no way to see an artwork in details/magnified.

    yes please! it's way more inspiring and gratifying to see (and browse) my library by cover arts. and it's quicker to find tracks that i want (thanks to the organizational feat and cover art identification)

    i think the hight of the current rows its enough to show the fist pixels of the cover art image (to don't loose the space). that's usually enough to have a visual hint.
