I have a library of over 2000 cd's that I have ripped to a NAS drive. A number of them were originally copied to FLAC using EAC before I installed dBpoweramp. I would like to get the album art for these files and include it in my library. Is there any way to do this

1. At all, and if possible
2. In a batch format

A lot of this music is somewhat arcane in nature and I would like to use the album lookup function in dBpoweramp to get this information. I figure this is my best shot to get this.

I would also like to use this opportunity to straighten out the tagging that I used in making the rips. I started out using several variations and ended using the default dynamic artist library function. Had I understood how this worked at the begining of my rips, I would not have to fix this mess today.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Note that adding album-art after ripping is normally a more manual process, as you have to verify the correct album art was found.

dMC only tags and gets album art when ripping a CD. If you changed your tagging options, the only way to update the old rips is to re-rip those CDs.
