Add or Embed Album Art Cover to MP3 with Mp3tag

April 14, 2010 | Filed under Audio, Software


One of the best thing in MP3 other than having a good quality with a small size, it can have album art embedded to it. The reason why you would want to have an album art added to the MP3 file is so that it looks nicer when you are playing it on your portable mp3 player such as iPod, Zune, Zen and etc. If the MP3 does not have an album art, you will have an ugly icon that says “no album art available”.

One of the easy way to add or embed album covers into MP3 is by using Mp3tag. Mp3tag is a powerful and yet easy-to-use tool to edit metadata of common audio formats where it supports ID3v1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, iTunes MP4, WMA, Vorbis Comments and APE Tags.

Before you start using Mp3tag, you can search for the album art cover from, download and save it to your computer. Then launch Mp3tag, click on File, select Add directory and browse the location where your MP3 is. Once all the MP3s are loaded, you can select multiple MP3 on the list, right click on it and select Extended Tags. On the right box where it says Cover, click the top icon with the star to browse the album cover. Click OK when done and the album art cover is saved to the MP3 files.
