Hello all!

I have recently spent considerable time and energy applying correct album art to my entire music collection, along with digitizing the CDs into the FLAC format. Then the entire collection is converted to MP3 format for use in portable music players, etc.

I have been using Tag&Rename to do the tagging. It reports that every file in the collection has album art. However, when I open the files in winamp, many albums dont. And it appears random which ones work. My guess is that I have used an incorrect format for the images, ie, used a gif inside of TR instead of a jpeg or something like that, but I am not sure.

Anyone have any ideas on making the files more portable with their art?


Oh, a further note: The flac files have been converted to FLAC 1.2.1 to support album art, they were in too old a version at the start; the format at the time I originally did some of my disks did not support it.
