How to make a Gallery:

It`s best to get all your pictures on your C: drive for faster scrolling thru your music-db.
This is done by making a GALLERY.

A gallery is a virtual music-db with only the pics and links to your real music-db.
In a Gallery are only pics and tekst files.

WATCH OUT for other stuff in your music-db, like .iso and other BIG files.
because all will be copied and you end up with a Gallery that is too BIG.

So take out those BIG files that don´t belong in there.


First of all,

- Resize pictures (only folder.jpg)

- Remember your hdd letter (eq. G:) this is because, when setting up new OS for eg.
  You don't have to make a new Gallery again (just give your hdd the same drive letter as before)

- Make a folder structure the same way you already have with your music-db (somewhere on a drive, you can copy that to C: later, maybe keep it as a backup somewhere)



From now on we only talk about music-db and Gallery:


Open "Library" and tick the "Chk" box (right under) see pic:
Select a genre you want to make in to a Gallery (so select a genre folder in the tree-view)



Then select the first album in your Library (it becomes blue high-lighted)
Then press shift + arrow down to select all albums from that genre.
They are all blue highlighted now and have a checkbox besides the album.
Just tick one checbox to select them all.



Next Right click on the albums you have selected:



and select "add to Gallery"

Then save that to the gallery that you have made earlier

and do so for all genres.

When all is done, save that newly made gallery to C:

and in xx select "settings" then "music root" to select your new gallery on the C: drive.


REMEMBER, for now you can only make changes in the new made Gallery, BUT NOT IN YOUR MUSIC-DB (otherwise xx can't find your album anymore)

If someone can explain the picture layout, please!

Don't get it??? Wink

You got mail.

I did the gallery selecting the albums (by genre too). Not sure if faster than with the tick box, but i think yes, for genres with not many albums, otherwise scrolling is SLOW.

I have the prob of a few cover arts very big (like 2000x2000) and close to 1mb size, but overall I have less than 5GB of gallery folder so far and happy Happy

Hi Roy,

Thanks a lot for this. Maybe, to improve at bit, you can review your own step by step guide and see where that leads you to ? I didn't try it myself really, but to me it looks like people might get stuck. yes
