I would like an option to hide artist images from Symfonium, especially when viewing the artist detail page that shows the albums and top tracks by an artist.
I do not use artist images and never will, so every time I visit the artist detail page within Symfonium I see a large blank image template that consumes just over half the screen. I cannot see or tap the albums or tracks by that artist until I scroll down.
I am aware that there is an option to use smaller header images, but that doesn’t solve the problem because:
- It still shows me a blank image template because I don’t use artist images
- I enjoy having large format album covers, and I want to continue using those.
If it is relevant, I am using navidrome as my media provider.
The benefit is that anyone who does not use artist images will not need to see a large empty image template, and will have immediate access to albums and tracks when visiting the artist detail page.
Adding a specific option to hide artist images will allow me to continue using large album images.
I have been using Symfonium since it first came out so my memory is rusty on what other music apps do, but I have never wanted to use artist images and I believe my previous music apps had an option to disable them.
I have added a screenshot of the artist detail page scrolled to hide the artist image. The page starts with the text of the artist’s name. This is how I would like the artist detail page to appear by default.
