Cover Art/ Metadata

I’m searching for accurate cover art for MP3 files.

Please and thank you!

It all depends on what you are tagging and how you have currently setup Picard. Not all releases have cover art on MusicBrainz. In this case it will often help to also enable the “CAA Release Group” cover art provider.

In Options > Cover Art you can configure which sources you prefer. Picard will first try getting cover art from the sources higher in the list, and fall back to the lower ones. E.g. this is a possible configuration:
