save album art

Post by mitebbots » Fri Sep 30, 2022 6:38 am

I have a large box set of albums with different album art for each album.

I would like to save that art and not replace with generic box set album cover when tagging.

recording date is better than release date, not sure if that is possible.

You can save the album art with the "Save As" button in the Album Art popup window.

The "Year" (DATE) tag is general and basically means the year of the recording.

You can add custom tags such as "RECORDINGDATE" "RELEASEDATE" etc with advanced metadata editor window.

What I wanted to do was *not* overwrite the existing album art since 63 CDs all with different album art, If I use online tagging it gets replaced with the same box set cover on all 63 CDs.

so far all online tagging wants to replace the original recording date with the date of CD release (2013)

I have found and option to uncheck "date" field in other software, thus, not overwriting the original recording date on 63 different CDs

I need to look for the advanced metadata editor window, since I am an advanced user now lol

thanks again

I added the tag ORIGINALYEAR, to the the existing YEAR tag in the editor, and now online tag reflects the original recording date of this single disc (1958), just says YEAR now, like it replaced the YEAR tag with the ORIGINALYEAR tag, I do not see both tags.

I noticed the "Add" button is grayed out when I add a tag also. Maybe that is only when adding a custom tag.
