Tip: Slideshow in Now Playing

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Software" @ 11:00 PM

This fresh tip comes courtesy of ZuneBoards' ACE who reminds us there's more than one way to enjoy the Now Playing area. In addition to the default mosaic of your album art, you can also set a slideshow of your own photos to play while you're rocking out.

It's easy enough to do; go to the Pictures tab of your Collection, and right-click the folder or picture you want to start. Click play slideshow and you'll be transfered to the Now Playing screen which should be filled with your pictures. You can alternate between controls for Music or Slideshow by clicking the button toggle.



P.S. ACE: I get the bug too (Vista RTM & SP1--haven't tried XP), but only from photos in the Public user folder. My personal photos load fine.

Album Art: Now In Glorious High-Res

Posted by Adam Krebs in "Zune Talk" @ 12:35 AM

As Bill Wittress (Zuneguy) promised, it seems our album art is finally receiving an upgrade. Several Zunerama forum members have noticed that once-pixilated and fuzzy have been replaced with sharp, high-resolution album art scans. Poster MrJoe has also noticed that the "find album info" dialog has been updated and the "find info for all albums" command actually works correctly for once.

One weird thing I noticed about the new dialog is that if I click on the album art during the update, I'm taken to http://shopformusic.microsoft.com/, which seems pretty inconsistent with the Zune branding. I can only hope they fix/update this by the time the new software is released.

The albums appear to be getting their updates artist by artist, likely in time for the launch of Zune2.

EDIT: Clarified "update".
