I was talking about this in another post, just wanted to make it an official suggestion.

What if BeaTunes could show album art the same way as Cross Dj? Here is a pic:

As you can see, only the upper part of the album art is shown, unless you select a track. Then full album art miniature is shown.

This is not only more viewing pleasant, it is algo good for those peopole who prefer to remember tracks using visuals instead text.

    I put something in 4.0.19 that's half way there. I.e. the upper parts of existing artwork is displayed, even when the whole artwork cannot be displayed. However, full artwork on selection is not implemented.

    It's not activated by default. To activate, make sure beaTunes is not running and then...

    On Windows, enter the following line in a command shell:

    reg add "HKCU\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\com\tagtraum\beatunes\songtable\renderer" /f /v "partial" /t REG_SZ /d "true"

    On OS X, enter the following line in a Terminal window:

    defaults write -app beaTunes4 /com/tagtraum/beatunes/ -dict-add songtable/ '{"renderer/" = {"partial"="true";};}'

    To turn off again, replace true with false.
