Mp3tag not keeping cover size while copying


This happens with the "Copy Cover" and ¨"Paste Cover" features in the cover box.

For example, I want to copy a 27KB image/jpg 301x300 cover and paste it to another file.

When I paste the cover this copies as a 66KB image/jpeg 301x300.

Main differences: file size (from 27KB to 66KB) and file type(from image/jpg to image/jpeg).

Any help is greatly appreciated.


If you want to store exactly the same cover, please don't use the clipboard functions. The image in the clipboard is stored as DIB (Device Independent Bitmap) and Mp3tag creates a JPG from this while pasting.
