Please Login to Remove!

Where do you put album art to appear in the blackberry media player? and do you have to do anything to associate the song to the album art?

Album art should be embedded into the audio file itself.
It's not a separate file.

I have never heard of album art being embedded into media. What format of media is required tn order to carry embedded album art?

Put a picture with the filename "folder.jpg" in the subdirectory with the songs. You can't associate this file with a specific song, but it will display when any song within the folder is playing. Most useful if you organize your songs according to albums.

All my audio is in MP3 format. I believe the artwork is embedded in the ID3 tags within each audio file. (Maybe iTunes does this for me?)

All I know is that I took a bunch of MP3 files from my computer and put them on the SD card which is now in my 8830.
The album art displays fine. I never copied any .jpgs or other graphics to the SD card. The only thing on there is MP3 files... so the artwork must be embedded in there somewhere ;)

Do you have hidden files displayed? WMP creates a "folder.jpg" file for each album when accessed, and stores it as a hidden file.

I didn't think it was possible to store images within a tag, but after researching it some I found that the newest ID3v2 tags do support album art.

I should have mentioned... I'm a Mac user.
Hidden files and WMP don't apply here. ;)

Cool mp3 Album Art

I found a utility that will add the album art to ID3 tags that iTunes dosen't, and the best thing is it's freeware and intergrates into the windows shell:

Id3 tag editor - AudioShell [freeware]

Or this app works well also:

Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v1, ID3v2, APEv2)

It's freeware too.

Good luck!!

That's a good find. However, I think it best to just Google your own artwork you want to use for the songs/albums because a lot of times you will have your favorite photos of artists that you'd prefer and it's really easy to just add that photo to the folder and title it FOLDER.JPG as mentioned above.

Me personally, too much software on my PC gets conFUZEing. LOL!

actually the guys that mentioned "hidden files" are right on .. all that Windows Media Player is doing is adding a hidden file to the folder named AlbumArt{and a bunch of numbers here} .. that is what other users refer to as "embedding" .. that album cover does not magically become part of the mp3 file and if you just dragged and dropped files into your BB and "it works" it's because you actually dropped the folders .. if you used sync .. WMP move the image with the file (which is cool) ..

IN SHORT .. it is easy to do this manually .. just drop the album cover into the album folder and rename it as "folder.jpg" - then hide it if you don't want to see it there. that's how it works (regardless how you actually get there) .. cheers, AP.

I use tagrenamer and it allows you to edit the mp3 tags at once for large libraries. It also embeds the jpg artwork of your choice into each song. Works great
