Hi rasti,
search on Google Images has been considered as option in the past, but finally discarted as option. The results are totally random and sometimes even badly unappropriate :)
You should try a partially automated tagging sofware, here there are some of them. My personal favourite is Mp3Tag on Windows.

I don't mind if you search on google or last.fm.
When I first posted here, didn't even realize or
understand that you search last.fm.

But you don't search for the file name or the
folder name in which the file is stored, if there's
no info in the file tags then there's no search, is that correct ?
Would be nice though.....also an option to suppress mp3 embedded
images (and display folder jpg or last.fm result) would be nice.

Maybe also Webradio can be pimped with the corresponding images.

But that's only cosmetics - even as is the player is excellent !

Regards

Ralf

PS: Bluetooth is also on my wishlist but I saw there're already
others requesting that too...

Well yes, it was already in our future plans to make the fallback order configurable for the album art retrieval :)

rasti, I'm not a RuneAudio developer but I suspect that a challenge with your suggestion that RA should as an alternative do a web search for cover image based on the file name (not embedded tags) is that people may use a lot of different ways to name their files.
song-artist.mp3
artist_song.mp3
tracknumber--song.mp3
artist_tracknumber_song.mp3
and so on. It is not so easy I think to make RA guess the naming format that different users have.

Like ACX's suggested try the tagging tool MP3Tag, http://www.mp3tag.de/en/
A very good feature in that program is that you can import tags based on a filename pattern. So if you have many folders with files names like this
song-artist-title.mp3
You can configure that format in MP3Tag and have it automatically create tags based on filenames. It can also help you look up and embedd more tags from discogs and other sites.
One extra advantage of having correct tags embedded in the files is that RuneAudio will then also display better text information about the currently playing track on the Playback tab.
