Sometimes users have added rather large Cover images (e.g. png 18 MB, png 35 MB and so on) as the album's main cover image to the database mp3tag's MusicBrainz source is using. Downloading these covers takes very long, sometimes up to 5 minutes
Would it be possible to check the file size before downloading the image and give the user an option to skip the download in that case?
Actually, in most cases when you do get these original sized images you NEED Photoshop. Because these mostly are completely unprocessed raw images from scanners / digital cameras. So just resizing them does not really help
I have a plugin for MusicBee called “Album Art Downloader”. It was a real game-changer for me. It allows you to search the sources you specify for the artist and album given. Using it, I rarely download from MusicBrainz. My typical sources are iTunes, Qobuz, and Deezer for the basic cover-art. I retrieve scans from discogs to ensure that they’re release-specific.
