Thread: Cant add artwork to downloaded album

    Cant add artwork to downloaded album

    I'm experiencing a strange problem, in that I cannot add artwork when editing tags to a downloaded album in WAV format. This is both when using the 'choose from internet' or 'load from file' options. In both instances the artwork appears and as usual I click ok, however when I go back to the album the artwork has gone. So it does not appear to be being saved. I'm using version R16 on a mac. Can anyone help with this?

    Cheers

    Paul

    If the wave file has LIST wave tags only then it cannot store album art, only WAVE ID3 chunk can. You can update the tags to include both if you enable the 'utility codecs' from the Control Center and convert this wave file to 'Update ID Tags', then try to tag.

    Thanks Spoon. I have checked the utility codecs and I already have List and ID3 enabled within tag creation of the wave id tagging section. So could this be related to another issue?

    If the wave file only has one existing tag type, the dBpoweramp will not write 2 types, only matching what the file has. You need to convert the file to 'Update ID Tag'

    Thanks again Spoon. Cab you give me a bit of guidance as to how I do this please? Currently I would highlight all tracks and select edit tags with dbpoweramp. I do not see an option to update id tag?

    Thanks

    start dbpa BATCH CONVERTER, then select the subdirectories you want to edit, then CONVERT at top of screen, then when at the next popup screen, choose "Update ID Tag" as the ENCODER. down below this there are several options/tabs related to tagging, artwork, etc.
