I prefer to use a program called Tagscanner to embed album art. I have also used Perfect Tunes (currently in beta) that worked great for finding MP3's without album art and offers to fix them for you.

I use MP3Tag (FREE!!!).


And 99% of the time I scan the artwork from the CD.

For a long time I resisted embedding the artwork, since it seems silly to have 10 copies of an album's arwork hogging disc space. But, it seems like this is the most-standard, most-universal configuration that works with any audio player.

DVDdoug, TagScanner is free as well and IMO better than Mp3tag. I actually had problems tagging large numbers of files at once with Mp3tag.

Since the purpose of lossy encoding is to save space, adding up to a megabyte to each file seems counterintuitive, a single "folder.jpg" is read by any audio player worth its salt - whether winamp, foobar, rockbox, or any stock android player. Unless you are using zune or wmp which both create ridiculous non standard thumbnails and other useless clutter what audio players are you using that dont read the standard folder.jpg or cover.jpg?

So what is the best program for scanning music files to see if anything has been added to it, other than it just being a pure music file?

The answer, as in so many other contexts, depends upon the format of the files that you want to check. Sure, foobar2000 can catch most standard tags and a good number of technical data, but something like MP4box would allow you to completely strip a file of its metadata and/or container, for instance. Plus, despite its frequent recommendation for everything under the sun and, indeed, suitability in many cases foobar2000 is not a dedicated tagger, as are MP3tag et al.

Where would I find out how to use foobar2000 to do this? Even though ive used it as a player for a few years, I just started using it to convert my EAC ripped Flac files to mp3. I know there are addons and tweaking that can be done to Foobar2000, i've just not found the time to mess with it or read up on it much.

Hi guys! And what about me? I always ripped my cd without adding the albumart! Then, i added my album on iTunes, select all the mp3s of the album, properties and add the aart myself and of course the total size of the folder increase a lot. So, what can i do now? Maybe i can save the aart file of all my folders and delete the single cover in all my files and put just the folder.jpg? What do you think? And what about when i will copy my album folder with just the cover.jpg on it to my iPhone library?

Thanks guys

I'd recommend Taghycardia as a free tool to embed album artwork into mp3 tracks automatically. Reasons:

1) it uses both locally and online found images for embedding
2) it addresses the file bloat problem by allowing to arbitrarily limit the size of the images to be added to mp3s
