View Full Version : Adding artwork to old flac files

2007-06-19, 22:23
Can anyone suggest the best way to add artwork to old flac files? I got about a third way through ripping my album collection when the new flac version added the new artwork metadata feature. The albums i've ripped since then work great on the new slimserver version...and I was able to obtain artwork for a substantial number of earlier albums by using Album Art Aggregator, before it stopped working with the newest windows update (a problem reported elsewhere in this forum). I am told that the program "Tag and Rename", which i have purchased, can add this metadata to old flac files where this data is missing, and can do it in bulk (i.e., rather than album-by-album, which is too cumbersome for my thousands of albums still missing artwork). But if it does that, I can't figure out how to do it.

Can someone give me some guidance, or perhaps suggest another method? thanks.

I was going to suggest Tag&Rename, but then you said you already use that :)

I don't believe there is a way to use it in bulk.

Have a look at mp3tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) i believe you can write macros in it to do a lot of the hard work.
