How do I get the 'Album Covers' view

This ought to be easy but I can't find the answer.

I was looking at the Help wiki and noticed on the page that shows the features of the Bento page that there is an Album Covers view (which just shows album covers in a matrix format) which I don't have either in my list of Local Media views or, when I click on Add Smartview, in the list of Presets in the drop down.

And I can't work out how to configure the Smart View to provide this view (reflecting a general confusion about how this works - its not obvious - and I speak as somebody who is an experienced software user).

How can configure Winamp to show this view

Getting a 404 on the [QUOTED] link.

Are the links copied over to quotes as text ?

Thanks for the link - I now have a matrix view of my album covers!

Two points
  • When I open the Add/Edit Smart View dialog box - the first two labels against the Filters both read 'Simple' - this is because (I suspect) I am using a different DPI (125) to the standard (95) which screws up dialog boxs on applications which have not been written to take account of this possibility
  • The key point which took me a bit of time to work out is that you have to click on Pane Options (the right most drop down icon next to the Search box) and choose one of the Small/Medium/Large icon options to get the matrix view
