Download album artwork

Download button Should you wish to retrieve cover art for a file that already contains tag data, or if you wish to add the tag data yourself, then you can click the Download Artwork button underneath the Artwork Display box, and Music Tag will attempt to download the Artwork for the specified Artist, Song Title and Album. The program will then prompt you once it has retrieved the data.

Ensure that the track information is as accurate as possible before attempting to match album artwork. This will give Music Tag the best chances of finding a match for your track.

Restore original album artwork to a track Should you at any time wish to revert the artwork back to the file’s default, clicking the revert artwork button will set the image to whatever is defined as the image on the file.
