    I think from my few months learning all this stuff that

    GAC stands for Get Album Cover..but has been adapted to retrieve all sorts of information

    hope that helps

    Hmm, still don't understand where I would put the transform properties?

    In the .lua file you'll be creating a GAC - something like this (from FlatStyle)

    Code:
    mygacl = GAC:new{var='GACL',includeSubItemCount=1,imageSize='S', fields='Album,Album Artist (auto)',count=20, useGP=1, };
    The corresponding call with a transform might be

    Code:
    mygacl = GAC:new{var='GACL',includeSubItemCount=0,imageSize='M', fields='Album,Album Artist (auto)',count=20, useGP=1, Transform="Mirror:Y;Fade:Down;Height:33"};

    Ok.... is there a way to transform the album cover image that is contained in the MP.PlayingNowCover variable and display it?

    Not directly, but if you use the trick that the Flatstyle CCF does and create a single cover GAC for each of the Playing now, Next and Prev covers then you can use the same transformation there.

    Ok will try that. For the un-mirrored cover I think I would use MP.GACL.Items[0].Image as the Image Variable


    What would I use for the Image Variable to see the transformed one?

    That would be MP.GACL.Items[0].Transformed.Image
