Hello, I’m hoping this is a simple question and is just something I’m overlooking. I’ve spend a bit searching thru the forums today, but haven’t been able to find an answer. I’ve been in the process of updating the metadata on my Music Library for a while. I’ve gone thru and cleared out fields I didn’t want (I’m only using Title, Artist, Album, Year and Genre). Then I worked thru each field to make sure all the same artists were spelled the same and that their albums, year and genre were correct.
I’m now at the point of adding / updating Cover Art. I started alphabetically going thru the “A’s” manually and searching for (pretty much Googling or searching on discogs), downloading and adding Cover Art. But with 12,000+ songs I’m looking for a quicker way to go about this.
Today I tried using MusicBrainz Picard for the first time. I selected “Add Songs” and pulled a couple songs in. I was able to select “Lookup” and it found the 2 songs. But selecting “Save” updates all the metadata for those songs. So those songs now have a Track, Album Artist and Discnumber added to them along with the Album Art. So, is there a way to use MusicBrainz to only add the Album Art?? I did see under Options, Tags I could uncheck “Write Tags to Files”, but that seems to not save anything, including the Album Art.
Thanks in advance for any help with this.
