I store my music in flac format on a NAS (Zyxel NSA325 v2) and have setup an read-only user to access files from my Mac (so it doesn't create those typical Mac files in all the folders).

I do not see a single album artwork, see the attached picture. What am I to do?

This is how a typical folder looks:

Facing the same problem here! All artwork is empty and I can't even connect to last.fm. Fortunately the song can be played. I think that is a connectivity problem causing this bug...

I'm experiencing this issue as well.

Not being able to connect to Last.fm is the reason you're not seeing any album art. We don't read the art from local files, we fetch it from there. I'm not sure how MacOS Sierra would cause this, but I didn't experience it on previous MacOS versions. I don't currently use MacOS any longer, so someone else will have to look into this.

@felixroos

i have the same problem with all music files on sierra. Tomahawk does not show any images at all.

Why would you not use local art files? At least there should be an option to allow for local art to be used. I have all cover art directly within the album folders in high quality. Do I need to have and configure a Last.fm account to see album art in Tomahawk then?

No, their API endpoint for images doesn't require auth and so you don't need an account there or configure the Last.fm resolver.

Due to the nature of online services and resolvers we can't purely rely on local cover art (e.g. it wouldn't help if you play a song from SoundCloud), so we implemented this as a source first. Since it covers 99.9% of all "cover art needs", nobody ever bothered working on reading local cover art. If anybody's interested in taking this job, I'll happily guide them and merge it.

@franktopel

Okay, so what are you suggesting to get this "no cover art" issue fixed? I'm a developer, but purely web frontend.

I'm afraid I don't have the slightest idea what would/could be causing this on MacOS Sierra only. I'd try the latest nightly from here first: http://download.tomahawk-player.org/nightly/mac/Tomahawk-latest.dmg
