Those are the installers, not the installed Addon. Double click the .mmip file to install.

OK, I figured out that a Script is an "Extension" so I got it installed. Now I have a folder with artist\album folders under it. Every folder with sound files has a FOLDER.JPG file there.

Is there some trick to this "mask" thing? Or will it just imbed the accompanying .jpg into the tracks?
I hit OK and the script seems to want me to rename EVERY folder.jpg to something like the album name! It must have trenched that out of the metadata. Obviously since no player app (on earth as far as I know) uses album art like this, I'll have to write a script to rename all the folder.jpg files, then another one to rename them back (or copy the tree somewhere else to preserve them). I tested this, and sure enough, "cover.jpg" works, and so does "folder.jpg". "This Left Feels Right.jpg" fails miserably.

Obviously when I told it to go, it did NOTHING.

Does that "mask" thing has something to do with this, and there are likely 200,000 ways to write the mask wrong and one way to do it so it works. Otherwise, I would have had to use a Tag editor to get the "approved" name for every JPG file, which is roughly as repetitive and time-wasting as just applying all the art to the tags manually.

Is there an example anywhere of how I could make this work with all the album art in FOLDER.JPG files?

Hello again,

Is there any sort of tutorial to the Album Art Tagger please?

I've recently installed XP and the tagger, have just uploaded an album into Media Monkey, and it isn't obvious how one uses it...perhaps it's just me?!

Thanks for your help.

What's in this thread is what is available as documentation on this Addon.

UPDATE: While I'm still interested in finding an add-on to MM, to do this, I have found ID3AlbumArtExtractor, which extracts artwork from all music files. I then had to run a duplicate file check to weed out the duplicates it created, and THEN had to use AAT to remove the artwork from the files, but all the artwork is now complete in JPGs.

Not sure if this add-on actually does this, but I can't see it, so I need to find out if this, or something else, works:

I want to extract all the art tags from an album's MP3s.
I've previously gone to great lengths to embed all my art; and while I've never deleted the folder's JPG files afterwards, some seem to have gone missing, or newer downloads have tags I want to extract because the JPGs weren't included in the folder.
I want to have external (JPG files) artwork for all albums.
Once done, I'll do searches to add missing artwork.

All files in an album have the same art, so each track #1 has all the art I need to extract (whether it's just a front cover, or front/back/media/leaflets/etc.) - I don't need to scan every file in every album; just one file per album will do. I don't want 20 copies of each JPG file because there were 20 tracks.

What I hope to find a way to do:
- filter on just track #1 for all albums (over 10,000, so it must be batch-functional).
- run the add-on (or, even external software; I just like to have MM do all the work!)
- it extracts files giving them filenames such as 'Front Cover.jpg', 'Front Cover1.jpg', 'Front Cover2.jpg' (say there were 3 images tagged as Front Cover...), 'Back Cover.jpg', 'Media File.jpg', 'Media File1.jpg'... with the <ArtistAlbum> and <Album> in the filename. So it would use the TYPE of image tag, to name the extracted image.
- of course, files to go into the album's folder, not anywhere else.

I can do this with AAT5.2 if I only want the first embedded image (action option 1); but has anyone worked on expanding it to include ALL embedded images? Or, does AAT do this, and I'm just blind to it?

Any help or direction appreciated... it's been 3 long evenings and I've only scratched the surface of the collection by trying things manually...
