Feature request: mass resize cover art pictures

Hello,

I would need this feature. Many images embedded in mp3 file are big and takes precious space from my mp3 player storage.

I need to be able to reduce the size of cover art pictures to a specified resolution.

If I extract each picture and re-size in photo editor then put back in mp3 file it takes forever for a big collection.

in short: you are stuck with the need to emply an external tool.
But it should be easy to export the existing cover files (there is an action for that),
Resize them with an appropriate tool like gimp
reimport the files (there is an action for that).

In general: how often do you modify the size of cover art for a huge amount of files? I would say that this happens once in a lifetime of a file: then, when you tag it to include it in your collection.

I need at least a way to mass extract the covers and then mass import them.
Now the Extract cover is disabled if I select multiple items.

You can use the Actions to mass extract and import covers.

Or try this program.

1.Select the files with covers and export them to a defined folder with their filenames.
2.Import covers for mp3 files from folder according to their filenames.

You dug up a topic from 9 years ago - and although the description of the cover export and import is OK, the solution for the topic has changed.
In the meantime 2 actions have been added that deal with pictures:
Adjust cover which changes the dimensions and the mime type
and
Set cover properties which sets the cover type and possibly a description.
Both was not possible 9 years ago.
