In the Mantis it says "album art" view. Does this mean "art view"?
Using the art vew "sounds" more complicated than the area tppytel and I
are talking about. We are talking about the Art & Details pane which is
typically front cover album art
(I guess that is what you meant, though?).
also, from Mantis, you speak of cycling through images when MM is idle. What do you mean by "idle"?

You can only choose other images one at a time. You have to repeat
the right-click on pane,
quick double click to enlarge
steps for each image you want shown.
1.) So, the basic "idea" of the Art & Details pane
would be: In Art and Details pane you quick double click on the primary art ([#1] in right click menu list) to enlarge.
The enlarged view will contain Left < and > right arrows to the left and right of the image near the borders, whether it is in the
initial state of enlargement or enlarged to full screen. Thus, allowing one to scroll back and forth through all the images embedded to that
2.) The screensaver/slideshow "idea"
sounds really great too.
The Focus would be determined by whether a single track or entire album is selected.
If a single track is selected, only images associated with that track are shown. If several tracks or an entire album,
only images that are in common with all the tracks selected show.
But, there needs to be some way to control the images with that approach. If you can't stop them, or view them individually
with plenty of time before moving to the next one, it would cause an issue for people who have
scanned/captured images involving any writing/reading (liner notes, reviews, etc.).
If both concepts could be implemented that would be great. If only one, then I prefer the Art & Details pane
left and right arrows idea from 1. above
or something similar, like corner
buttons/icons perhaps or when clicking an image (enlarged)
it moves to the next one. Although, a way to go back as well, is better for liner notes, reviews, etc.
Any of this should "preferrably" be able to be done while tracks are being listened to (which is why I have an idea but not certain what you mean
