Wonderful! And will the larger images also be embedded in the downloadable music files?

re: Karl - the larger images have always been available as separate files inside each album's download page. The reason we don't include them in the in the zip of the album is that there doesn't seem to be any consensus on what image size is "best" and what format people want (PNG/JPG/PDF)

However, all the formats that support embedded cover images in the audio file itself (ie, mp3, flac, aac, ogg) all include cover art at, I believe, 300x300 pixels (which is fairly high for a thumbnail)



I would definitely prefer images to not be in the music downloadable files (embedded is ok)
If I want the cover art as a separate file, there is a very convenient and (more importantly) predictable link to download artwork.
