Ok i have and understand how to rename albums tracks etc my problem is how do i add my own art work i have, I have all the art work on the hard drive but how do i add it to tag and rename so when you click the album it comes up. I no this is easy to do with offical realses on amazon but how do you add your own art work.

Winamp Pro allows you to Right-Click an album (send to) > Auto Tag

(also you can select entire albums and easily bulk update Artist/Album/Date
..which leaves only the song tracks to sort out - big time saver!)

Foobar2000 has a plugin called 'Live Show Tagger' (will parse .txt file > to Tags)

(problem is not every .txt is in the 'correct format' to parse - you'll need to adjust each .txt)

Album Art is easy:
Place .jpg in folder > rename to > folder.jpg
if your download didnt include hi-res art then google image search is your friend.
I'll post a script later that will auto-rename any/all .jpg's (within folder/ all subdirectories) to folder.jpg

these two methods worked best for myself (TB's of untagged music..ugh!). I'd like to hear what others used.
there is no solution that works 100% with live shows - it can take months.

hope this helps :) happy thanksgiving

Adding a graphic to the Folder Cover Art is easy. Grab a .jpg from the 'net and save it into the Desktop. Then click and drag it into the Tag & Rename Folder Cover Art box.

My problem is doing that type of thing for the File Cover Art box. Can't figure that one out. I want to put the same jpg in both.

Any ideas... anyone?

I use Mp3Tag for adding cover art. I find the art I want to use and rename to cover.jpg. I then put it in the folder for the bootleg I am working on. Open Mp3Tag and select the bootleg folder. Click select folder which well then show all the track files on your screen. Highlight all the files and then right click. From the little popup screen click extended tags. Click the yellow box to the right under Cover. See below.


Click on the cover.jpg file to select it which will be on a new screen and then click OK. The artwork is then embedded in the files.

Mp3Tag is great.
I also use Tag&Rename for some things.

iTunes also works incredibly well (versions before 11.x) for organizing a massive catalog.
