I’m using Musicbrainz Picard v1.4.2.
Over recent months, I’ve been finding that the size of the album cover-art that Picard is offering has increased from 100s of KB to multiple MB.
I feel that this is great to have higher resolution cover art files acting as the stand-alone folder.jpg file in a folder for applications to display, but embedding a 3-5MB jpg into each MP3 file often increases the size of every file by anywhere from 50-100%.
Ultimately, I’d like to have the highest resolution version of the cover art as my folder.jpg, but a lower resolution version embedded. Or if I already have a lower res cover art embedded, have the option to ONLY download the cover art as folder.jpg without embedding.
Is this possible with the current version of Picard? If so, how?
If not, could this be considered as a feature request for a future version? Essentially just add an option where the existing “Replace / Append” coverart options exist with a 3rd “replace but not embed” (or similar)?
