Hi there,

Well, it turns out there is some image processing built-in to vb.net. So I have incorporated your suggestion. Underneath the "Prioritise cover file" button you will now see a checkbox that says "Resize to Thumbnail". Currently, you cannot select the size of the resulting thumbnail. It will generate a thumbnail of maximum 256x256, but it will retain the aspect ration of the original so chances are the width will be less than 256.

Thanks for the suggestion, and I trust this addition is useful!

Sincerely,
Ben.
