Hi. New GMB user here, very excited by this--much better than other music systems I've used.

I have two questions about the album art. First, the FAQ has an entry for finding cover art without manually selecting it, but I have most cover art embedded in tags in the song files themselves (which is not mentioned in the FAQ entry). So if I go to a new album and play a song, it'll start playing with no art. If, however, I right-click on the album and clock "Set picture", a window will come up with the right artwork, and if I click "OK", I'll be good from then on. But I'd like to avoid doing this manually for thousands of albums. Is there a way to automate this?

Second, and I guess this will depend on what layout I'm using (I'll probably customize mine to get something iTunes-like, but without the rating (which I never use), and with a larger display of the cover in the left pane, etc.), but is there a way to have the cover art display when you click on the album, instead of when you are _playing_ the album? That is, if I click on an album title I'll get the songlist from that album, but I won't get the cover art unless I double-click on it to start playing it. I'd like to see the art when I'm browsing the album without playing it.

Thanks. I have various other questions already, but am holding off because I think I might be able to figure them out myself....
