    Music Converter ID Tag Processing will not delete album art

    It's as simple as the title to this thread. My brand new installation of dBpoweramp Music Converter will not delete the album art as part of converting a file from mp3 to flac. It simply replaces whatever is there currently with the folder.jpg option. Any help fixing this would be much appreciated. My old version worked perfectly whereas the new version does not. I have tried all the options offered in this thread. "Best way to remove embedded album art" but to no avail.

    Thank you,
    Leon McEntire

    That's strange as it worked for me with 'ID Tag Processing > Deletions > Single Tag: [Album Artwork]'.
    In the Manipulation tab, is 'Import From' set to the default '(none)'?

    Are you sure it is not your player which is taking the folder.jpg and showing it as art?

    I'm not referring to a player. I'm simply viewing files within folders.

    Yes, I have the settings correct. Ever since I downloaded dBpoweramp, it seems that every music folder which contains flac files and a folder.jpg now displays every flac file as the folder.jpg even if I have not edited the ID tag.

    Ok so a different problem now then.
    I think you're looking to reset Windows folder view settings. I have no idea if the installation of dBpoweramp could have altered this behaviour as I tend to sandbox most installations nowadays so they don't impact my OS.

    That is an excellent idea, Windows folder view settings could have been the culprit but I just tried checking and unchecking every box and it did not help. Got any other ways of changing folder views other than from the "view, options & view" tabs in the top left corner of the window? Also, in case it helps, when I access the ID tag to edit it, there is no Album Artwork at all showing so all I can do is add or change the current artwork, not tik the X to delete it.

    You could try WinSetView. I have no experience of it but it's on various forums with decent looking reviews.

    If that's on one of the files where you've removed embedded album art, isn't that expected?

    In response to my post stating that I successfully used dBpoweramp to remove album art, you appeared to move onto another problem you were having with File Explorer.

    Which I thought confirmed that your files no longer had embedded album art.

    Ignoring the File Explorer issue for a second, are you still saying that you haven't managed to remove album art with dBpoweramp using the method I outlined above?
    To triple check if there's embedded album art try opening the file with Mp3Tag.
