Download Album Art

mp3Tag Pro is an advanced MP3 tag editor, which means that it is able to generate and download tags for MP3, OGG Vorbis, MP4 (audio), FLAC, WMA, AAC, APE, and for other types of music files. For most audio formats, lyrics and cover art can be saved inside files. mp3Tag Pro is capable of saving lyrics and album art both as separate files (text or picture) and inside music files.

If you download tags from Amazon or from Discogs, mp3Tag Pro can automatically download and save album art inside every tagged file (you should activate the "Download album cover" option on the "Tags from Amazon" tab). However, some players (especially portable ones) expect an album art file with the name 'folder.jpg'. Activate "Create a folder.jpg" on the "Tags from Amazon" tab to enable creating such file.

If you see no album art area in mp3Tag Pro (this may happen if you have accidentally closed it), press "Ctrl" + "P" on your keyboard, or check "View" - "Show pictures".

Cover art

Optionally mp3Tag Pro can download only album art without affecting other fields of the tag.

Select files that should be supplied with cover art. You can select thousands of files in different formats, from different albums and stored in different subfolders. Only make sure that their tags are not empty, specifically the "Artist" and "Album" or "Artist" and "Title" fields.

On the toolbar, click the "Download cover" button.

mp3Tag Pro toolbar

Confirm your wish to download and save cover art for the selected files. mp3Tag Pro will search for appropriate pictures and save them inside files.

If the program finds no cover art, you may want to check if the album's name is not mistyped. In some cases, shortening the album's name will help, like described here.

The trial version of mp3Tag Pro adds a small logo to all downloaded pictures. The full version doesn't add any logos.

Save Cover Art

After downloading album art is automatically saved inside every selected file (if you download cover art for a single file, it is saved inside the file). Each audio file can contain more than one picture. If you click the "Download cover" button a couple of times, you can get two copies of the same picture inside the file (in the same way, it is possible to get three, four and so on copies). You can learn that some file has more than one picture, if the "Next" button is active in the area (normally it is grayed out): . The total number of pictures is also shown in the title of the album art area (on the screenshot above you can see "Picture 1/1, which means that there is only one picture in the file).

If you need to save downloaded picture(s) as separate file(s), click in the album art area.

Click to delete current picture.

mp3Tag Pro supports inserting pictures from files (click ), from the clipboard, or using Drag&Drop.

mp3Tag is great, by the way. I am a bit of an addict when it comes to music. I download a lot of music files from blogs and many of them are poorly tagged and named. mp3Tag makes the process of making them more useful so very easy. I have hundreds of files from a time before I purchased mp3Tag and am now going through those files to fix them. I simply could not do this without mp3Tag.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to future versions.
