adding tags works great. however adding cover art is almost impossible. i have a really hard time because the process replaces my title information with erronious titles. you see i capture from records edit and usually resize the song because there is extra leadin. this product works great for adding tags but if i try to add cover art i am taking a big chance because it will incorrectly replace all the song titles.
so here is the questions. can i find or develop a file of just cover art and have it add art to a bunch of songs without messing up the song titles? now that would be real cool.
you see i don't always organize my collections by album. i just would like to add some generic cover art.
If you need to save only the album art when using any of the tag sources in Mp3tag, once you've selected the correct album and display the information about that album from the source, you do have the option to just right-click on the album art displayed and choose "Save to Tag". This will update only the album art and not affect any other tags in the files that you have selected.
I use Album Art Downloader as a free tool within Mp3tag, and it works great. It pulls from many more sources than what is available in the Mp3tag menu. Once you install it, go to Options > Tools to configure it. Here are some links that should guide you in the right direction.Album Art DownloaderMp3tag Tools Help
Once you select a song and right-click on it, go to Tools and you should see the tools entry you created within options that will send whatever data you need to search for the album art that you are looking for. Once you select the desired art and save it, you can then select the entire album in MP3Tag and load the album art into all of the songs you selected, and then save. This will only update the album art in those songs without affecting any other tags.
