    Question

    What should I do if some or all covers don't display?

    Background

    Movie cover images or posters display in My Films, both in the Main and Detail windows.  The picture or image you have selected in AMC or your movie catalog database is the one that displays in My Films. You select the path to these images in My Films Setup on the Artwork Tab: Cover Image Path.

    Answer

    There are several ways to store pictures or images in AMC, which determines how the path is stored in the XML database. If your images are stored in the a \pictures sub-folder of the catalog XML, then the default setup in My Films (via the Setup Wizard) should work for you. However, if you use a another method or location, you need to configure the Cover Image Path correctly in My Films setup on the Artwork tab.

    Other catalog types store cover image paths in a variety of ways, sometimes only the picture name, in which case you need to add the full path to Cover Image path. It your catalog exports the full path to the exported XML file, you do not even need to specify a cover image path. See notes on specific features supported for your catalog type on the relevant sub-page under Supported Catalogs.
