Artist Information Folder and Multiple Fanart
#7
We still have the basic Kodi issue, or concept, of a multi-image control that relies on a path to a folder with image files.  Or simple images that are either pulled from Kodi via an art infolabel or a specific path/filename.  The one tweak on that is the "resource addon" but that's more of a packaging method than a way to actually display images in a skin.  Of course skinners, always pushing the envelope, figured out they could use the fadelabel control, intended to display a sequence of text strings, to display a sequence of images.

If the requirement is to be able to display a sequence (ordered or random?) of images, then there needs to be a grouping mechanism to create the sequence.  For music the grouping is typically based on artist and arttype.  For music video it is mv title and arttype (though mv has the ability to pull some things from music artists but not music albums though it appears the design intended to provide that as well).
