    Default How to delete album art on a music file?

    I have a few mp3 files that has album artwork on them and was wondering if it is possible to permanently remove them . Whenever I put the song onto itunes the album artwork would appear. I remove the artwork on itunes but there are times when I delete the song and then re-add it to itunes, the album artwork would appear again. Do I need some sort of program to delete them? Anyone know?

    Nope, I will try the suggestion later on, in case if its work, ok . It's the same also with Winamp is it, where the album image is displayed and you want to delete that image?

    it's the ID tag V2, get an ID tag editor and delete that image.

    Does that mean I will have to download a program for that? I was trying to avoid installing any additional programs onto my computer but if there is no other way then I guess I will have to. Do you have one to recommend that is free?

    Let me know if the other option works, if not then it is okay. Thank you so much for all of your efforts though.

    Yes, any mp3 id tag program will work, I'm old school, I don't use ID tag, but most of the new mp3 players now a day use it.

    I try this but dunno how to use it, there is no option to load the image or deleting the image:

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...g-Editor.shtml

    or is it, just delete all ther ID tag altogether. From extra reading, it seems that the image is downloaded from the net when the .mp3 song loaded in the player and stored somewhere in a hidden folder. Even though you found and delete the image, the player will always re-download it using the ID3TAG info.

    So maybe deleting the ID TAG altogether will do it, so that the player doesn't have any info where to download the album art. I will try it when I go back home tonight.

    Yeah, that's it, load the .mp3 in the tag editor, click ID3 TAGS, click the Remove ID3Tag button and delete all - v1 and v2

    There is no need to remove the whole tag from an mp3 as it could contain some valuable data about the track. You can just remove the images from the tags. There are some utilities that can do that. For instance, the free program called "Taghycardia" is able to remove art from mp3s in a batch mode. The process is rather simple and takes a few clicks to complete.
