    Album covers photos to be shown on each song, in each fold


    Hello everyone!! I was unsure of where to post this question,,so feel free to suggest i move it elsewhere becuase i wasn't sure wher to place it.
    In a regular folder,,i would use a software program like Mp3 Tag, and i would "attach" the photo or album cover of my choice to each song,,so that in additon to each time i play the song on my computer or my phone,,the photo would appear and...when i open the folder in large view..each song would show my chosen photo/picture.

    I've recently changed all my music to flac. It still shows up the picture,,but it doesn't show the picture in the folder view. I really enjoy opening the folders of my music and seeing the album cover/photo of my choice.

    Any ideas??? Thank you

    Whether you use mp3 or flac. It should show the album image and in the folder view, it should show the image for each song.
    1. Make sure you have an album image file specifically called: Folder.jpg
    2. Make sure each folder properties->Customize, you set the folder as Music folder.


    Here's a screen shot of one of my flac Music folder:

    I use Tag&Rename to set the image Folder and Files as shown below:

    Thanks for the help! Maybe it was the software i was using (Mp3Tag) and it was only made for Mp3 files. I'll try again with Tag & Rename.

Title says it all. I don't care if the "Now Playing" window shows the album cover as 200x200. All I want is to make it look sharp and not blurry. My mp3s have embedded 1000x1000 album covers. (The problem persisted even when they had 200x200, 300x300 etc images) ...

OK, this is just a rant...... A tragic phenomenon that I have noted regularly since my teen years (the 1960's) is that the people who transcribed the lyrics of 60's rock songs for official publication (such as liner notes and sheet music) constantly made errors in their written lyrics, and...
