Feature Request: Manipulation with existed Cover Photos needs change

#23

I do not understand why I should try something

that works ok when I need it.
So, what is the configuration in Tools>Options>Tag Sources for the cover filename?

#24

OK., I have working action for import, but I have thousends of pictures as you advice above: Format String: %album%_%_cover_type%.jpg.

If I separate pics I can use for specific mp3 (in new folder) and cut the name to _cover_type%.jpg, my action is working.

But, what shall I do to use Import Cover Action based on full %album%_%_cover_type%.jpg (variables) without cutting, changing names or seperate for any mp3 file in several folders?

#25

Working but is not reliable.
Nevermind, I have now collection of changed Covers to baseline type, so I don't need copy-paste.

folder of course, as default.

#26

That is why I recommended

#27

OK., I have "%album%_Front Cover.jpg", "%album%_Back Cover.jpg", "%album%_Media Cover.jpg" (I mean I have e.g. ABC_Front Cover.jpg etc. of course) for any MP3 file, but how can I use it here, because any variable I use it doesn't work:

Zrzut-ekranu-(263)

#28

As I promised, proof, it happens:

Zrzut-ekranu-(265)

If you import a cover MP3Tag does not know anything about the tag-variable %_cover_type%. This is only valid for the export of the embedded covers.

So you have to name the cover type in the format string to match with your cover-filename:
%album%_Front Cover.jpg
%album%_Back Cover.jpg
%album%_Media Cover.jpg

Could you find out which file leads to this export?
I suspect that the image is corrupt and that there is no mime type available for that embedded image.
Alternatively, you could filter for such files with
%_cover_mimetype% MISSING

Thank you for advice.

It is ordinary JPG, Pic is not missing, is presented properly in mp3TAG, so, if I change the name to name.jpg in Win Explorer, the thumbnail returns and file is usable e.g. in Photoshop.

Big Thanx! It's working! Big Thanx!

BTW., do I understand correctly, if I write %album%_Front Cover.jpg only, without rest of track (as e.g. C:\Folder\%album%_Front Cover.jpg) it will import the pictures from the folder, where selected mp3 file exists?

#33

Yes, the import uses the folder of the current (audio) file unless you specify something else.

Although this topic is markes as solved, I want to link to this one:

https://community.mp3tag.de/t/cover-jpg-show-progressive-or-standard-encoding/42650

As the user claims:

Sony devices won't recognize progressive encoding JPG

I think it will be super-easy, to show along with the cover dimensions, if it is progressive or standard encoding

Thanks!
